I just came across this, and I have to say I love it! For so long I have always dreaded the question, “So what do you do?” I wish I could have come back with an answer like this, for it is so true that a Mom has many different job descriptions. Instead, I would cower and say that I was “Just a stay-at-home mom”. Why did I feel inferior? Why did being a Mom not mean that I was an amazing person?
As much as so many people want to climb the corporate ladder, I think that I am making an amazing contribution to society by taking the time to raise intelligent, well balanced adults who will contribute to society in a loving, giving manner. So, I guess being a Mom is important! And, might I add, one of the hardest jobs in the world? But also one of the most rewarding.
So, cheers to all the moms in the world! We are amazing, strong, instrumental contributors to our families and society, and we should be proud of it.
