Re: Acronym really bothering me

I used to think of myself as a "full-time mommy" when I was a single WAHM with my daughter for 3 years, and then even more of a "full-time mommy" when my twins were born and I became single once again. I don't recall thinking that married (or non-single) moms and WOHM's were "less than" full-time moms though. It was rough though. Being a single WAHM was rougher on me emotionally than being a WOHM with a partner now. It just seems easier having the help of a partner, and getting time away from my children for a few hours of the day..... I hope that doesn't make me sound like a bad mommy, not like I NEED a break from my kids or anything.
I loved being a WAHM but I love being a WOHM now too! There are pros and cons of each. I still consider myself a full time mom though, even working out of the home! I don't stop being a mom when I go to work, and really, the way I think about it is that I go to work outside of the home so that I can provide for my children better! I loved being a WAHM but I couldn't afford health insurance working at home.
I do the best I can. I guess that's what it boils down to!

ETA - OOps I didn't mean to make it sound like anyone else isn't doing the best they can. I meant it more like "I do the best I can with what I've got" which is what I think every parent strives to do. I don't like feeling judged as much as the next person, so I try not to do it. Just do the best you can with what you've got, and that should be enough for you. Who cares what anyone else thinks
