Well, today was the same old drivel from Her Highness, Mrs. Lori. Stay home Mother’s are the only ones who care about their children. All children want to be cooped up in the house all day. As she has said in the past, you shouldn’t go anywhere because play dates will lead to the mothers gossiping and the children might mess up the other house before the mighty king husband comes home. We also must not forget that the mothers might get sidetracked with their gossiping and not make it home in time to make the king’s dinner.
I do have to admit I believe there are some moms that could stay home if they cut back spending. The biggest factor in the decision is the husband’s salary and job security. If the husband only makes minimum wage, and there are even 2 chikdren, it won’t work. In my stste, the minimum wage is only $ 7.35 an hr. Sure, most men make more than thst, but the average rent on a 2 bedroom apt. Is $915.00. So even $9.00 or $10.00 an hr is still not enough if you are going to properly care for children without govt. help. And don’t get me started on the time she said schools shouldn’t have a free lunch program.
Sone readers on Lori’s blog brag about how they have a ton of kids and make it on less than $30,000 or even $25,000. That would be a red flag for me to suggest a Social Services visit to make sure those children have enough food. clothes, etc.
