Hillary Rosen, democratic pundit, recently started a firestorm when she said that Ann Romney* has not worked a day in her life. I am sure that all stay at home moms were offended. Heck, I was offended.
My wife is a stay at home mom and I can tell you that she works hard raising our kids. The emotional and inspirational video below produced by P&G for the 2012 Olympic Games pretty much depicts my wife's life.
* Ann Romney is the stay at home mother of 5 and wife of the Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
The Main Point
My wife is a stay at home mom of two very active youth sports athletes. Our two youngest kids participated in 403 games and practices in 2011. Crazy I know. This video pretty much sums up what my wife does day in and day out - waking, cooking, cleaning, driving, cheering, tucking in.
Stay at home moms work hard.
Stay at home moms of youth sports athletes work insanely hard.
Of course, moms who work and raise kids, athletic or not, work incredibly hard too.
A big thank you to all moms no matter what choice they make (career or stay at home).
My kids will likely never participate in college athletics, pros sports or Olympic games, but it is still worth the time and effort. I am proud of my kids and my hardworking - stay at home wife.
