WMW: Top Ten reasons Working Moms and SAHMs should stop arguing with each other, and just get along

Please imagine David Letterman reading off this list, cuz he's way funnier than me. Nah -- maybe Ellen Degeneres -- she's hilarious. Or Rosie O'Donnell -- cuz she's actually a mom.
  1. If we stopped judging each other's parenting decisions, we'd have more time to judge our husband's parenting decisions! (just kidding hubby...)
  2. More women to discuss poopy butts. Compare colors, consistency, frequency... all the key attributes.
  3. Tag team overzealous coaches. Once SAHM mom # 1 is exasperated explaining that 5-year-olds should not be yelled at until they cry, TAG! Mom #2 in her suit and heels steps in, puts on her boss lady hat, and tears the coach a new one.
  4. More women to vent about whiny kids. Discuss high-pitch frequencies, world records...
  5. Bartertown! Maybe a SAHM is willing to swap some delicious home-baked cookies for that next bake sale for some updates to her website? Any takers?
  6. More women to support each other's breastfeeding decisions. And mutually stare down that guy at the restaurant who has a problem with it.
  7. Our kids are adorable. Really, they are. And smart. And talented. Haven't you seen the latest pictures? Video? Blog?
  8. More women ... friends. Many of my friends are SAHMs, many are working moms, many are not moms. We all still have lots in common!
  9. Our daughters (and sons) will know that women have many career choices. If we all get along, then our girls will see that each option is an acceptable -- no -- desirable career choice. And our sons will know that too.
  10. Many of us will switch between being a working mom and a stay at home mom at some point in our lives. Why fight with yourself? Who are we? Mom's Fight Club?

"Mom's Fight Club" just cracks me up. I'm in total agreement, the bickering is just ridiculous.

Good one!! Thanks! I like the bartering idea - I sure could use some home baked goods!

This is SO awesome! I just wrote an article about this issue -- how the church could do a better job to bring women together. It's supposed to be published in Feb. Great minds!

I laughed so hard when I came to the picture at the end. I totally agree. Let's stop fighting and embrace each other.
