FTWM: The worth of a working mom.

There’s been quite a lot of talk recently on the worth of stay-at-home-moms. I thought I would do a post on the worth of a working mom, since this topic has been on my mind quite a lot of late.

I’ve worked almost continuously since I graduated from university in 2001. The only two breaks that I took were when I was pregnant with Alison and Zoe. Both times, I worked from home as a freelance writer, and returned to work when the girls were a few months old. The first break was about 10 months long; the second, longer because of Zoe’s surgeries.

Apart from these breaks, I’ve always had a full-time job, although I’ve not always needed to work. In fact, I used to be quite proud of the fact that I could stop work whenever I wanted, because K’s income then would have enabled us to live more than comfortably on a single salary.
