We’ve seen SO MUCH talk on the blog about the plight of today’s stay-at-home moms that I decided to devote this week’s column on Mommyish to the topic. The post is aptly titled, ‘Can Stay-At-Home Moms Say That They Have Jobs?’, and I encourage you to go check it out right here! I talk about everything from Mommy Cards to the age-old SAHM vs working mom argument.
As for the submission posted above, I’m pretty sure grocery shopping and buying birthday gifts are called “errands” whether you have a soon-to-be-2-year-old, a miniature pig, or a state-issued tracking device strapped to your calf. And unless you’re a professional assistant, those errands don’t come with a paycheck. Sure, it’d be NICE if picking up a prescription or purchasing an overpriced toy for a toddler’s birthday party warranted getting paid, but shockingly that’s just not how it works. Sorry!
