What, Exactly, Is a “Working Mom”?

Dear Friends,

What, Exactly, Is a “Working Mom”?

If you go on the Internet and google the phrase “working mom” you get over 27,200,000 results, and those results take you to websites that offer everything from an invitation to share recipes for “disguising vegetables” to opportunities to debate the question, Do working moms make better moms? to blogs that list tips for “resisting the guilt, finding balance and embracing the journey.”

The phrase “working mom” has been around for awhile, but what, exactly, does it mean? Well, it refers to a woman who is a mother with children at home, who also has a full- or part-time job outside the home. So does the phrase suggest that a woman who is a mother with children at home, and who does not have a full- or part-time job outside the home somehow – doesn’t work?

Did you ever know a mom who didn’t work?

Grocery shopping, meal preparation and cleanup…washing, ironing and folding laundry…house cleaning, diaper changing, errand running, shuttling kids to doctor and dentist appointments and soccer practice, managing finances, shopping for kids’ clothes, helping with homework, enforcing curfews, sitting up all night with a sick child…

With all due respect to today’s definition of “working moms” (disguised vegetables not withstanding), on May 13, Mother’s Day, let’s honor all mothers as “working moms” and thank them for all the work they put into us!
