The job without a punch card
Dr. Laura added one more diamond to the necklace of truths that we wear every day and call Life. Dr. Laura is the Master of '"saying it as it is", and I don't know many people / celebrities who can do this without fearing that they might offend and, consequently, become a persona non grata of so easy to offend society.
Being a Mother is a Job with no sick days, vacation, or promotions. Being a Mother requires to, well, be a Mother just as being a chef requires to cook. Why so many feminists are throwing this truth under the rug, is beyond my understanding capability. Why so many women choose to have a baby and immediately after that to place him/her under a hired help umbrella, it is again beyond my understanding level. Why women refuse to be Women, Mothers, and Matriarchs......well, you know, I am lost there, too.
Dr. Laura shines a light on that many women are afraid to flick a match on: BEING A MOTHER. TAKING CARE OF THEIR OWN CHILD.
Thank you, Dr. Laura, thank you for charging my batteries as a stay-at-home mom -- I do need the respect and appreciation that any worker will take, too, without feeling guilty.
God bless you, and God bless all stay-at-home mothers! For theirs is the true happiness.
