Melissa’s Tempered Words

Have you read this blog post written by a loving husband who defends his hardworking stay at home wife’s job?

Unfortunately the reactions that this blog has received are honestly breaking my heart. The comments from people who are comparing stay at home mothers to working mothers are so sad.

ALL mothers deserve respect and acknowledgement for the work they do. All the people that think this is a competition need to realize that every situation is different.
I am ALWAYS a mother-whether I am working or staying at home.

Support mamas everywhere-leave your positive comments and words of encouragement below. Tell us your experiences or even give a loving shout out to another mama!  xoxox Melissa (stay at home working mom;)

    working at home mama right now and loving it… even though it’s a challenge to manage time to get it all done. 🙂 it does feel competitive sometimes, that there are always some that don’t understand being at home full-time IS a job as well and what i feel i’m called to do…

    Not working right now due to my baby but I have been a stay at home mom for years. It’s the best of both worlds to me but as long as you always put your kids first it doesn’t matter if you work or stay at home at all. It tells me as much about a person as their favorite color would. All that matters is that you work hard to contribute to your family and love them in whatever way that makes you and them happiest.

    I meant to add that I am usually a stay at home working mom as I have freelance written in the past while attending online college but chose to not work once I had my second. My first loves daycare more than staying at home with me so I worked hard for years to make sure she could attend it.

    I was a working single mom for many years, now I am a full time stay at home raising/working Grandma and from personal experience, they are both hard work and both involve loving your family.
    Whichever way you chose to raise your family, remember it is a choice and a job and can not be done alone. It does take a village (of family and friends) to raise a child.
    Best wishes in your career.
