wow. or don't assume pt. 2.

forty plus comments?
I am speechless. If the comments that were received are an accurate representation of the folks who read this blog...then awesome! We have some like minded thinkers and though that is not a requirement to be a guest here...it is always nice to know that I am not alone.
Thanks for your support.
I had no idea that this post would receive so much attention...I was just kind of on a rant and I turned it post.

For the other 10% of you...I am a little baffled.
There was no ill intent in that post.
I said not a thing about whether my way of life was for everyone...only that it was right for me.
I wrote that list based on MY experience...I have heard all of those lines more than once and on a semi-regular basis...so YES there are people out there that think those things about stay at home moms. And while once upon a time I did take offense to the kind of comments that prompted the previous post in the first place...now I laugh them off knowing that those people don't have a clue.

And while it is my nature to be defensive...I know that in this case, I have nothing to be defensive about. I was not meaning to start a debate...only sharing the view from my side...which most of you got, related to and hopefully found a little comical...which was part of the point.

I am OK with comments that do not agree with me.

I am NOT OK with ugly anonymous comments.
If you can't sign your name on a hate filled comment, that you feel the need to leave, that has nothing to do with the post...then please keep it to yourself because I will no longer publish them.

I don't care what kind of mom you are...only that you are doing what is right and best for YOUR family. Whether that is working or staying at home, makes no difference to me...there was NO judgment in the previous post...maybe you misread some of my sarcasm...or are as defensive of your mothering choice as I am...I'm sorry if you thought that post was any sort of judgment call. I truly wish that all mothers could come together as a team instead of hen pecking each other. I am actually pretty amazed at women who can work outside the home AND take care of a home...talk about a full time job.

For those of you who were just plain ugly. Shame on you. Now you have bummed ME out.
