As a work at home mom, I often struggle with my job description. I get asked what my job is all the time and I always have a hard time nailing it down. If I have a hard time describing what I do, obviously others stuffle with it. It frustrates me that at home moms are given such grief & the third degree when we tell people we stay at home. It especially kills me when people are more impressed by my job than they are that I raise my child. Isn't raising children the most important job there is? Why isn't it treated as such?
I think us moms need to reclaim our job description. Lately, I have taken to calling myself a stay at home feminist. It's a label that works for me and I love the shocked reaction people have when I describe myself this way. Especially because I am in my twenties and there aren't too many twenty-somethings moms who would describe themselves in this way. I'd love other people's suggestions for a job description. What do other at home moms like to call themselves?
