Lay down your guns
So, it begins again and I confess to feeling a bit pissed off about it. What is it about women that we have to sit in judgement on each other about our choices? As someone who has given birth (three times), stayed home with babies, worked from home with babies, worked part-time in an office and worked full-time I reckon I'm qualified to comment. Caring for children and working outside the home is hard sometimes. Staying home with kids and scraping along on one wage is also hard sometimes. NEITHER ONE IS BETTER/WORSE THAN THE OTHER. I'm so sick of women judging each other, competing to be the winner. In these kinds of wars, we all lose and end up looking like a pack of sniping cows. Can't we just all play nice and share the sandpit?
