I read the article this morning, and thought of this board, and others like it.
I never said that you weren't a mom if you are not full time. :)
I have always found the term "full time Mom" to be insulting. I don't consider myself a "part time wife" because my husband and I don't spend every moment of every day together.
ack, you are right! I did not know I said that. Let me just say that I apologize for confusion. What I meant to say is not what that says. My prior post says it best, I hope, when I clarified.
Work status does not define if you are mom. I am a sahm who works at home full-time. I am still a sahm. I do all for my kids and for my job. (I do graphic design.) To me, that makes me the stay-at-home mom who happens to work full-time too. If I used childcare while I worked, then I am not a sahm, I would be working, not mothering. Neither makes me a better mother but you can definitely do work and be mom if you are their sole provider at that given moment.
Actually, you did.
