I keep reading articels in papers about women who stay at home who look down their noses at working mums, and working mums who look down their noses at women who stay at home. This is terrible.!!!!!! It all comes down to personal circumstances, and most often there isn't a choice! I have been agonising over whether to struggle on one salary or to get a child-minder, and struggle on two salaries and hand my child over to someone else. We are not rich by any means, and whatever option we choose money will be a struggle. I still haven't made a decision yet as it is really hard to make. What makes it even harder is that whichever option I choose I will be looked down on by people and slated for my choice. Grrrr!! What does everyone else think?
