Being a mother is tough. It is one of the harder things I have ever done. I mean, it is no picnic, but this recent fake job interview thing about how being a mom is the toughest job in the world, makes me want to blow my brains out. I know, I know, a little harsh. But I have been very vocal regarding my lack of sympathy for stay-at-home moms, and this is no different.
If you do not know what I am referring to, check it out here.
First off, being a mother is not a job. It is a privilege. So in reality, we could stop right there. But for the sake of me wanting to rant, lets keep going. Second, how sexist is the post? What are dads? Chopped liver? I don’t know about you, but in my opinion dads have it way worse than moms do.
Andrew is literally superman in my opinion. He is incredible. I couldn’t do what he does as a father or just as a person. And when you see Turner look at him, it is evident that Andrew’s role in our son’s life is just as important, if not more important, than mine.
Next, the qualifications listed are not even accurate. For one, I am sitting down right now. In fact, I sit down for probably a solid 17 hours a day. I have a desk job, so it comes with the territory. And when I am home with Turner, I am sitting on the floor playing with him, or something that does not involve strenuous work. Maybe since I am a mom to a less than one year old, my qualifications are different?
Not to mention moms get breaks. I have “mom nights out” and I am not ashamed of that. I get the whole concept that even when I am not physically with my son I am still a mom, which comes with worry and things associated with being a parent, but if we are really comparing a mom to another job, it is no different.
Moms get vacations, and sleep, and breaks. So that is all just bologna.
There there are the comments about pay. That is pays nothing. Well, while I stand by the fact that being a parent is in no way a job, therefore you shouldn’t get paid. For the sake of argument, the reward of love, affection, companionship and a life full of perfection because of the child you create, is worth far more than any monetary amount.
I think the video is awful. I am a mother, I think the sun sets on my mother, and I am offended by how ridiculous the video is.
