Here’s my reaction to the current “Mommy War” that broke out this week:

Yes, all mother’s “work.” That said, there’s a difference between doing the all the work that a mother does; and doing all the work that a mother does AND working 40-50 hours a week as the sole breadwinner of the family. They work outside the home not because they want to, but because they need to in order to keep their children sheltered and fed.*

I’m pretty sure that’s what Hilary Rosen meant when she said that Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. Mrs. Romney raised five boys; that’s a LOT of work! But that’s the only “job” she had– she didn’t have to punch a clock in addition to her work in her family.

*I’m referring here to mothers who have to work in order to provide for the family; not ones who choose to work on a part-time basis.


In other news, high-profile teen dad Levi Johnston has planted his seed in another underage Alaskan. I’m just happy it’s wasn’t a Palin this time. Good luck, Levi.

Hubs spent an hour by the pool with his buddies, I spent an hour doing yoga; we met back up to have a little cookout.

Tornado-causing winds aside, it was a pleasant weekend.
