    Don't Know How People Think It Isn't...

    I'm a young mom. My friends are just now having babies almost 2 years after me, and I'm not gonna lie-it was difficult at first being the only one I knew with a child. No matter how hard your friends try and sympathize, they just don't get it. You never aren't a mom-even if you...

    Not a Lot of People Actually Realize It

    But goodness it's a full time job and I don't see how moms can sit on here all day. I just call that straight up laziness. I'm busy with my girls' on my days off and even when I come home I'm busy. I make sure everything is perfect before I go to bed. Like the house being cleaned...

    24-7

    Being a mother is not like just any other job. It's the most important job there is and you don't ever get a break. A regular job you can leave at the end of the day. Motherhood is 24 hours a day 7 days a week. No sick days, no vacation time. But it is all worth it to see those...

    The Ones I Saw Were

    I was never a mother, but the ones I saw, including my own,considered it a full-time job - even if they were employed. My own mother was a good housekeeper and cook in addition to a strict but fair mother. She would stand up for us when we were unfairly punished at school...
