when you have lots of money, it is easy to be a stay at home mom

the rest of us need both incomes to have any sort of life.


Working 8-16 hours a day, then coming home to cook, clean and be with your kids makes for a tiring day but we love our families and do it because it is what we do

1. There are plenty of women

who would have loved to have had the option to stay home with their kids. Sadly in GOP America paying a living wage gets in the way of corporate profits and executive bonuses.

2. Someone commented in another thread,

I can't remember whom....anyway, the gist was, it's highly doubtful that Annie, with access to nannies and maids, was really "staying at home".

3. my mom, a single mother

would have loved to have been able to stay home and raise my brother and I after our father died unexpectedly.. unfortunately she, like most women, couldn't afford it.

Ann Romney had the luxury of being married to a multi-millionaire, she didn't have to work. Most women aren't fortunate enough to have that choice.

5. and to have nannies as a stay at home mom? I don't get that at all

if you are a stay at home mom, why the need for nannies?

The mother of my kids was a housewife.We both wanted it to be that way.This was in the '80's,but it wasnt a hardship doing so.Kept both kids at home until they started school and I am glad of it.

8. I have worked as a single mom and stayed home

for 6 years while married and kids were babies…but I had to do daycare, sell tupperware and practically starve to be able to afford it.
