“She never worked a day in her life”. Really so tell me Ms Hilary (what a surprise there) Rosen, who raises your children? Do you pay someone to do that for you? Who teaches your children morality and civil behavior, right from wrong, as it were? A day care provider, public schools or maybe you’re lucky enough to send them to private schools. Do you have more than the 2.3 children so popular with liberals today? Of course maybe you don’t have children. Maybe you feel that babies and children are a curse, a cancer on the planet who will get in the way of your high minded, liberal utopia. Maybe you think that you’ll miss all the fun stuff you want to do. Maybe you think that like a dog or cat, a child left at home even with a babysitter isn’t worth the money you’d have to pay for someone to watch them. Not to mention their sticky fingers on your white furniture and muddy paw(footprints) on your pristine white rug.
NEVER WORKED A DAY- Let me tell you about a mothers day. It usually begins before sun up when the baby needs to be fed, then there’s the boys to get up, fed and ready for school. A mom gets a break after the children have gone to school so that she can then, depending on the amount of money they have to live on, bake bread (yes people still do that) do the grocery shopping, clean the house, tend the baby. If the baby sleeps the mom might also sleep because by 12 noon she is just beginning the longest part of her day. She picks up the children from school, takes them to any classes they might attend, comes home, makes, dinner (most of the time, depending on money) home cooked, then there’s homework to supervise, dinner to clean up, baths, scriptures to read, prayer to say and finally bed time except for the baby who will be awake another 2 to 3 hours and get up at least one more time at night.
And this is if there are no teenagers in the house. Once they go to high school the activity in most families escalates X10. We don’t even need to talk about what happens when they get sick. Imagine if you would 5-6 children with strep throat or the flu or chicken pox. Imagine 200+ concerts and about the same parent teacher conferences, the hours spent on homework and projects. Mrs. Romney’s boys, like my own, probably also did scouting which is very parent involved and then there’s sports.
I never wanted to be anything but a mom. It was my career. Thanks to your boss I now have to go out in the world as an old lady and try to find someone to hire me. I’m faced with foul mouthed, arrogant, obnoxious morons everyday and those are just the women, so please don’t tell me how oppressed I was. I never had to listen to some pretend adult who uses the F word like punctuation in my home. We had more respect for each other than that.
I spent 27 years raising my 6 children and nowhere since then have I had a more exhausting, busy, frustrating, wonderful, blessed experience than being “just a mom”. I’m sorry you don’t have any respect for that. It makes it hard for me to have respect for people who make light of, or fun of something they don’t try understand or who aren’t tolerant of someone else’s “choice”. I hadn’t planned on voting for your boss Ms Rosen but now I think I’ll spread this little gem as far and wide as I can. I hope he won’t be able get elected “pooper scooper in chief.” Try to pick this one up from the clean end………..I dare you.
Oh and just a little tip. Anne Romney suffers from Multiple Sclerosis. I guess that’s so much less debilitating than having too much junk in the trunk (of which the press is not allowed to comment on). Way to go, as with Trig Palin, picking on the disabled………..that’s so liberal of you.
