Mothers deserve MORE respect. Sure moms on average are held in very high esteem by their offspring, but the actual Job of Motherhood is not. Lets just say that sometimes it's not exactly looked upon by the enlightened with admiration.
If your choice is to stay at home, raise your kids and make a house into a home, you'll often find more scorn than sympathy. Yet a growing number of women, including young mothers are turning their backs to the "me-first" culture and choose to face the "drudgery" head-on, nurture their home, family, and maybe even squeezing in 12 years of home-schooling just for good measure!
Sure, Retro Mom's may get ridiculed at other places, but here at Atomic Living we couldn't respect you more! As a single dad, I struggle to manage the daily grind with the same cool expertise my Mom did. Hats off Mom, no paying job comes close to the high office you hold!
