AMEN, sister.

Maybe I'll get off my duff and post something too...

Yes!!! I actually just read this out loud to Troy because I liked it so much.

My 91-year-old Gramma asked me the other day what I do with myself all day. "Take care of Annalie and the house," I replied with a smile.

"Oh, don't give me that, I had FIVE kids!" my Gramma said, laughing, "And I know they're not THAT much work! How do you keep yourself busy?"

Gritting my teeth, hoping my smile wasn't too forced, I said, "Well, I must not be as good at raising kids as you were, because she keeps me pretty busy, Gramma."

I'm kind of amazed my head didn't explode, quite frankly. But I'm glad it didn't, because I love my Gramma and would have hated to injure her in the explosion. And I guess age does give you somewhat of a pass on saying dumb things from time to time, no? :-)

Jennifer

OMG girl. You go!!! I too have been pondering this topic. Maybe I will post as well. Can I link to you?

I LOVE YOU.

Enough said....The Grass is NEVER greener on the other side! I tried staying home and I will be honest I thought it was harder. I have the best of both worlds now...part-time work for the moment being. This part-time job is probably going to vanish so I better enjoy my time.

I wandered over here from Angella's blog.

This is an awesome post! I don't have kids, but I think the whole debate is stupid. How about every family figure out what works best for them, and not worry about what every other family does? (Note to my friends with kids: Use this same principle regarding childbearing, specifically my lack thereof!)

Gigi

So how did your trip to the East Coast go? (Sounds like it might be time to change the subject before someone gets hurt!)

Gigi

J/K -- I know that it hasn't happened yet. Maybe it's time to move up your trip, though...get a break from whatever it is that's got you so angry!

I love this post Jennifer! I am sympathetic to both sides because I work at home full-time and take care of Emily and I've also been single for 2.5 years. I feel like I've been through the ringer, but yet I feel blessed beyond measure that I am able to work at home. Try not to let people bother you. You are doing a fabulous job and no one can say any different. Each family should find the dynamic that works for them and that's all that should matter. What works for some won't work for others. Hold your head high and be proud!

As a WOHM, I have to say coming into work is WAAAAYYYYYYY easier than staying at home all day. I must admit though, it's pretty easy to forget that when I'm stressed at work. I really hate how this topic divides mothers. I work and send my son to daycare b/c it's what I need to do and it works best for my family. I would NEVER look down on a SAHM or a WAHM. You would think in 2009 this wouldn't be such a hot debate.
I still think Carter & Audrey were separated at birth, they have so many similar issues. Carter never eats either! He doesn't eat at home or school. I almost fell over when they weighed him at his MRI and he has gained 6 pounds since March. Maybe he eats rocks?
