Or my personal fave -- when the posts also include the obligatory "now I have nothing against mothers who HAVE to work"

 

Yes. We. Did.

That's the part that cracks me up, the idea that the baby will shrivel up and die if this (usually) 20-something first time mommy with 2 or 3 weeks of parenting under her belt doesn't personally attend to it 24/7/365.

I'll add another: there is no magic wand. There's no hidden answer. If your ends don't meet you have to cut expenses or work. Period.
