Oddly enough, that is how some people think. If you have ever been or are a stay-at-home mom, you understand what being a stay-at-home mom means. People would say to me, "It sure must be nice to be 'able' to stay at home and take care of your kids ... I have to work." My reply would be that I chose to stay home and take care of my kids and do without the house, car, clothes, etc. That was my choice.
A woman asked me once, "What do you do?" I told her that I take care of the kids. She said, "Oh ... you're just a stay-at-home mom!" JUST ... there is no just when it comes to raising children. To raise a child is one of the most, if not the most important thing a woman will ever do in her life. God made us to be able to nurture and to raise our children. Not all can, or do, but for our family, it was the right decision.
