When Talking to Moms That Stay At Home

If you're a working outside of the house kinda mom, when you're talking to moms that either run a business from their home or just plan stay at home, it is not helpful to constantly state "But I work during the day, so I can't ...."

Yes, we understand you're scheduled from 9 to 5ish.  You're busy.  Your time is committed.  Got it.  But the constant emphasis on "I work" kinda chafes at the souls of those of us who stay at home and aren't able to eat chocolate and watch TV all day because we're busy too.  Sometimes we're even busy volunteering in the community doing nice things for YOUR KIDS.

I work now, harder than I ever did before.  I just don't get paid for it.
