Kelly, thanks for reading! I hope this post has encouraged you in all that you do for your family. Whether staying at home or working outside the home, it's all an immense amount of devotion to your family.
I 8767 m not as optimistic as you are. We are not going to reject the Stalinist memes unless and until some terrorist nukes Flatbush Avenue and puts Junior 8767 s Deli out of business permanently. At that point, we will turn Damascus or Tehran into radioactive glass, and we won 8767 t feel the least bit sorry about it.
I think you've missed the point. While this post has absolutely nothing to do with working parents, it is arguable that the working parent does indeed get appreciation for doing their job via bonuses, raises, vacation time, worker appreciation, etc., etc.
Further note to T. Marcell and others: I 8767 m not a Buddhist of either Theravada or Mahayana variety, but do I consider Buddhism by far the the sanest of the 8766 great religions 8767 the only one that would have any chance at all of surviving in a world of rational thinkers.
Thank God for grandpas & grandmas! They keep our 66-month daughter whenever we need them to (free of charge.).
As for the nanny's salary I really hope you're exaggerating, otherwise I'm quiting my full-time-job here in Greece (my wife and I make about 66,555 Euros - $ each) and I'm coming to change your kid's diapers, I'm very good at
Nice article. Stay in love.
Indeed, the index of Soviet success is that most of us no longer think of these memes as Communist propaganda. It takes a significant amount of digging and rethinking and remembering, even for a lifelong anti-Communist like myself, to realize that there was a time (within the lifetime of my parents) when all of these ideas would have seemed alien, absurd, and repulsive to most people at best, the beliefs of a nutty left-wing fringe, and at worst instruments of deliberate subversion intended to destroy the American way of life.
I am not a stay at home mom because my husband cannot afford it. I work 95 hours a week and have been the main care taker of my 9 year old twin boys. I breast them when they were born, had to go back to work after only 6 weeks, and average 8 hours of sleep a night when I went back to work because my husband was working 8rd shift and would not help out with the twins at all. He finally started to at least pick them up from day care after I had to ask when they were 7. This article is wonderful from a husband who actually gets it.
Thank you so much for writing this. I actually got teary eyed. I think many SAHMs really devalue themselves. I know there are so many times that I feel I'm not really contributing as much as my husband, even though he has never said that or made me feel that way. I really appreciate you writing this piece.

Love this!! I'm only in highschool, but one day I plan to be a stay at home mom. This is a great reminder that a stay at home mom is a real job, and it makes financial sense! My dad did some number crunching awhile ago and realized that my mom wouldn't be able to make enough money at a job to cover the cost of school and childcare for everyone. "A penny saved is a penny earned!"
Rounding up suspects and holding them in secret? No. We need some sort of due process. Maybe it can 8767 t be done in the regular courts. But there needs to be some sort of process. The president cannot be allowed to decide these things on a whim. There have already been a bunch of mistakes. And now they can 8767 t or won 8767 t bring them to trial because they 8767 ve all been tortured and no court will convict. So we 8767 re really stuck.
I don't know what you mean by tax credits. I work, and my salary is taxed, and the working parents get to claim you as a dependent since you have no income. Also, many families I know with a stay-at-home parent get government assistance, like Medicaid or food stamps. Should I complain about my tax dollars going to these families? You have a great opportunity to stay at home with your children, but I'll be damned if I hear someone complain about not getting a credit for it.
