As you can imagine, the shee-yit hit the fan when a trouble maker on MSN’s message boards posed the question: “Have stay-at-home moms with expensive bachelor’s degrees wasted the money?”
I’m not gonna lie: Since having Skylar four months ago, my brain has become even mushier than Jack Nicholson’s naked ass in “Something’s Gotta Give.” But am I sorry that I invested in a bachelor’s and a master’s degree…? Of course not.
Where ELSE would I have learned the proper keg-stand technique? Geesh.
In all seriousness, many mothers, I’m sure, would argue they’ve benefited from being educated, from being able to pass that knowledge on to their kids, and having a strong foundation when… if… they choose to re-enter the work force.
I believe a better question is, “Have companies wasted great talent by not offering better work-life solutions for mothers?”
I also don’t understand why the trouble maker targeted stay-at-home mamas when MANY people have wasted money on expensive degrees. I mean, thank GOODNESS I got my Political Science degree so I could become a writer for “The Bold and the Beautiful” and then a smart-ass blogger! *Ahem*
