Okay I’m sure that many of you have seen the viral video “World’s Toughest Job” by now. If not, go watch it here.
My boyfriend brought it up tonight and was saying how he thought that the whole thing was a stretch and that being a mom wasn’t really that hard and that women “bring it upon themselves.” And let me tell you that I have never been more mad in my life. Saying things like mom’s get to wear pajamas all day and that they really aren’t on their feet ALL day and shit like that is just RIDICULOUS. Mom’s are the hardest working people I know, and many of them hold another job during the day as well. I don’t know yet if I want to be a mom, but I still respect the hell out of those who are, especially mine! And for someone, especially my own BF to say something like that to me, is just not okay. And I know that he really wants kids, so lord help him and the rude awakening he will be in for. But rest assured that after this, I will not be the mother of them. I have no time for unappreciative and self-centered boys.
one of you just made a horrifically inaccurate and unfounded historical claim, and I would just like you to know that it took everything I had to not rip you a new one with the truths of history and the glory of research. be glad. but you all have been warned. don’t post historically inaccurate claims. I have a degree in history and I’m not afraid to use it.
