Acronym really bothering me

Ok so I heard the acronym FTM Full Time Mom the other day for the first time. It has really been bothering me. Aren't we all full time moms. Just because I go to work doesn't mean I stop being a mom. When their kids go to school are they no longer a FTM since they aren't with their kids all day?

I'm usually very laid back and things like this don't usually bother me, but this one really got under my skin. Thanks for letting me vent.

I've always seen it mean First Time Mom. I agree Full Time Mom is a little much!

I am a social worker so that is what it means to me also.

The idea that someone would not consider me a full time mom because I work offends me though.

I think the next time the kids' school calls me at work because one of my darlings is in the office I will tell them that I'm not on duty and to call my husband...the FTD.

I think I'll just start reading it that way in my head. Then it really won't bother me.

Ok I like first time mom way better. Now that you said that I think that is what she meant, but another person said it meant Full time mom.
