I`m sure many of you will agree with Leigh when she wrote that real moms “are all kicking ass on a daily basis, at home, at work and everywhere in between.”
70% of women with kids under 18 participate in the labor force, according to the United States Department of Labor, so it’s obviously that working moms are everywhere, in all 4 corners of the world.
So what does it mean exactly when someone says that working moms aren`t real? Are they imaginary or they aren`t real as moms who don`t work?
It was nice to see some many people writing positive comments like: “I have been a stay at home mom and a working mom and it’s all effing hard. I also didn’t breastfeed my kids and they’re still alive. If you’re a mom, you’re a real mom. Love you so hard for all you said here.”
According to a recent study moms put in 98 hours of work per week, job and family duty combined.
We can`t even start to emphasize how wrong it is, even to suggest that all those moms who put in all that extra work are not “real moms”.
At the end it’s totally understandable why Leigh has no patience for people who think that way.
