Stay at home moms, stop saying you don’t work… October 23, 2014

… If there is one thing that totally grates my nerves, it’s women who stay at home to take care of their families apologetically refer to themselves as someone who “doesn’t work.”

Just this week I met a beautiful woman who just had a baby. She told me that as soon as she was able to go back to work she’d feel more like she was contributing to the family – as if caring for her child was somehow not contributing.

Momma, you work! Trust me, you work.

Whether you’re a mom who labors for a paycheck or not, if you have kids, you work. Period. Every mother is a “working” mother.

Stop being so hard on yourselves and judging your worth by whether or not you receive a paycheck. And if anyone tries to suggest otherwise the stink eye is the only response they deserve.


“The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only – and that is to support the ultimate career.” – C.S. Lewis
