My wife and I have a happy and healthy baby boy as our first child. My wife stopped working and is a stay-at-home mom and loves every minute of it. We got an email from our pediatrician’s office introducing a “New Moms Group” that my wife could attend if she was interested. I want to include the last few lines from the email so you can see how our world works these days and what a shame it really is:
If you have a child under four months of age and want to join other new moms in a group interactive session to discuss topics including making time for yourself, sleep patterns and schedules and transitioning to a day care and going back to work, then this is the class for you!”
How about that, Dr. Laura? They now are including day care and going back to work in their sales pitch, as if it is what new moms are SUPPOSED to be doing! I’m glad my wife and I have our heads on straight and our son will reap the benefits of having a stay-at-home mom.
Keep on fighting the good fight!
