DH works lot's of hours so the amount of stress added to him and the family if I worked full-time would be too much for us. If DH made a ton of money I probably wouldn't work either. There are a ton of things one can do to be a useful and contributing member to society without getting paid.
    I expect raising your two would have been a lot easier if you'd had Ann Romney's staff. Somehow Ann doesn't look like the changing diapers, making school lunches type. Of course she might have taken them to school in one of her two cadillacs. Or had her driver do it.

    I just can't connect to her - women like her (like my mother in law - and my grandmother in law) I wouldn't choose her path (their path) in life: I would have felt like I failed as an individual if I spent my entire life caring for my kids and grandkids and became nothing more than my husband's sidekick and trophy wife. Honestly - until I started college I did feel like that about myself and it damn near drove me to suicide. So maybe I'm putting myself in her shoes and imagining myself wanting to claw my eyes out as I only became tethered to his hip my whole life - a mere dependent child that never grows up - and dies forever reliant on someone else's welfare to carry me through . . . not a feel-good thing to me at all.

    There were 6 in my family and my Mom's shirttail never hit her butt she was so busy. I'll bet she had days, she would have liked for someone else to take care of us and she could have worked "outside" the home. It would have truly been easier on the grand lady.

    I could have guessed a puppy would take you under. You just don't seem to have a strong constitution.

    I don't know if the Romney family had nannies, but I do know some very rich mormons in Logan, Utah who don't have nannies...they do have housecleaners come in once a week, tho. We used to hire house cleaners, and we aren't rich.
    The families I am thinking of have businesses, and often the wife will work there. In one case, the wife is the majority owner of the business and works full time at it.
    And most of them did not start out wealthy....can't speak for all of them.

    Is it an insult to state a fact? She has never worked a day in her life. She married into money and has been a stay at home mom.

    I know you have a post to prove this point, yes? Now run check you Libby sites, surely someone has been snooping on the Romney's at home.

    Re: Ann Romney Never Worked a Day In Her Life.

    So a female liberal says a mother of five never worked a day in her life, and here is a thread full of excuse making for what she said, and all sorts of other diversions.

    Had a man, or worse, a (R) made such a comment, these are the same kind of people that would be outraged.

    Go figure. Another day, another wheelbarrow of hypocrisy.
