Most of Us Moms Deserve More

Equality.  Women's rights.  And our right to be treated equally is nice and all but let's not forget some points here.  *I'm not talking historically or too serious here so bear with me*  While there are many men stepping up as parents and husbands, taking on roles they wouldn't have been expected to years back, there are still many men who are just simply benefiting and taking advantage.  We care differently, we carry and create our children from our own flesh.  We are not equal.

Accurate to the modern way of being, in most families both husband and wife go to work but when it comes to house work and taking care of the children; most cases it is still the women's responsibility to do so.  What is so equal about that?!  What I'm saying is that we should have more.  Sure allow me to work, and carry my own bags..but no.. know most women still do more.
 
Equality is nice and all but we are woman and man for a reason.  Our bodies are made differently.  So personally please continue to open that jar for me, continue to at least offer to carry my bags, and know that in the end of the day for most of us women-we are doing more.  That is far from equal.  I know too many that go to work but have far more responsibilities than their husbands, and that is exactly what is expected of them too.  It isn't right.  A full time mom doesn't get to clock out of work.  A working mom often has to come home from work and still have to be the one to worry about dinner on the table, clean clothes, and a clean functioning home.

The more we act like it's okay for us to do more, the more it's expected of us.  The most undervalued job is truly being a mother.  My husband gets to go to work clock in and out, and bring home a paycheck showing his "accomplishments" for the weeks, while I don't have any paperwork to show for my busy full of excitement days.  My days are never ending.  I never eat or sleep in peace.  Of course I'm personally one of the few unlucky ones since I don't have many close family to help us out.  It's said that it takes an army to raise kids, I have no army.  Kids don't know better and I don't expect a full appreciation from them until they are adult parents themselves.  I only wish my mom was still alive and around for me to tell her my many thanks for her many nights and days of true genuine caring love. 

Anyway.  What I'm saying is, it isn't equal.  We should call it more rights movement or something..for those of us that are busy moms, not getting enough credit for what we do. 

It's 3 AM.  I hear my husband snoring.  But I also hear my baby crying.  I gotta run.


*Clearly my views will not be one that everyone could relate to.  Every person, every family is different...
