Before I actually classified my writing as really working from home people would always ask me, “What do you do?”
The reply was always really the same, and simple … “I am a mom.”
Then I would sit on the edge of my seat waiting for the typical ignorant response of … “That’s it?”
Um … That’s it? Don’t you mean … That’s awesome?
Being a mother has had to be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling jobs I have taken on in my life. In the past I have done a lot from being a unit clerk in a hospital, to working in a doctors office… but motherhood is by far so much better.
Is it easier? No way! But it is worth every meltdown, sleepless night, or temper tantrum in aisle three at the grocery store.
When I started working from home it was almost like I didn’t dread being asked in public what exactly I do anymore. “Oh, I write from home for a living,” was much more of an acceptable answer. I didn’t get as many rude comments, or nasty looks. But why?
I mean, is there really something wrong with only being a mom? I really don’t see any problems with women choosing that route in life. I mean it is their life, right?
Have you ever run into something like this?
How did it make you feel?
