    Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, to the office, Dr. Phil airs a segment that will no doubt have working moms up in arms.

    That's true, unless someone thinks that it is ok for the children of mothers to have to work to get inferior care.

    I just skip the candy-coating and just hire hookers to watch my kids.

    I can't speak for anyone else, but loving MY son is not a job. It is a privilege, and one I'm happy to share with everyone else in his life.

    First, I don't think anyone who puts their child into daycare or a babysitter is outsourcing the love.

    So let me get this straight. When SAHMs like Jessica want to argue with WOHMs over who has the hardest job all day long, they're apparently so busy doing laundry and vacuuming and making dinner and going grocery shopping and cleaning up after the kids and driving carpool that they don't have a single minute to sit down and rest. However, when it comes to arguing over who loves and takes care of their kids more, SAHMs would suddenly like for you to think that they're spending the whole day reading books and snuggling on the couch and helping finger-paint pictures and teaching kids "Where is Thumbkin?" and tickling little toes. Got it. ;-)

    Who's Jessica? The only one I know of on this board WOH full time.
