come on, think about it. what's your image of the "average" mothering mother? Well for me, it's like this (this is the assessment I've come up with after being here...over 4 years.) this is sort of the default as I've percieved it:
-wealthy (aka definitely not poor)
-stay at home mom
-at least 2 kids
-probably drives an suv or minivan
that's why there needs to be a forum for working moms, in my opinion. working moms are the freaks, here, not you guys! If you ever need to talk about the issues central to staying home all day, there are bajillions of threads about how to clean and do laundry and entertain a child all day long. That's one reason why I come here. It's one of the few places where people like me who "do not work" are not treated like dirt. Of course, most of the moms who stay home have maids here, as well as husbands, but whatever. At least there is unity on the staying home front. Not saying, shut up be happy. Just saying, I sort of disagree that the SAHM thing is lacking here.
