Is what we're so dense about the fact that different mothers have different preferences for how they organize their lives - how much they work, where, at what time of day, etc.? Or is it when we probe why, for instance, you'd rather work at night from 8-11 instead of use more or any daycare, that we don't understand because we have "cookie cutter lives"?
I am not criticizing your choices, trying to understand them. My position is that if you want to work or have to work, you should enjoy some things as a result of that. Like for instance hiring a cleaning service once in a while or regularly, if not now then when you are older (or have the financial option of doing so). Or knowing that you have unexpected expenses better covered. I know there are WOHMs who work just to put food on the table, not for any financial cushion. And I know that some SAHMs have a financial cushion without working. I was making a point about a perk of working that I enjoy and that I hope more people could enjoy.
