Re: Acronym really bothering me
I used to see FTM referring to "first time mom" but now am seeing it increasingly used for "full time mom" - i.e. a SAHM. It really, really bothers me; I'm a mom 24/7 and that includes while I'm at work. I don't stop being a mother when DD is at daycare.
No one would tell a dad who works outside the home that he's not a father while he's at work, or that he's less of a dad because of it. No one would tell a SAHM of older kids that she's not a mom while her kids are at school. I'm so sick of the Mommy Wars.
