Tired of constantly hearing the phrase “but what do you do all day?”, Florida-based tattoo artist Ryshell Castleberry decided to write a tribute to all stay-at-home mothers and housewives via Facebook. It exploded. Her powerful post has been liked over 640,000 times and shared by more than 300,000 people. It may seem like a lot, but that’s not enough. It has to be read by everyone to really appreciate all of the enormous sacrifices moms and caregivers make for the sake of their children.
However, not everyone agreed with her post on raising kids, chores, and choice for married life. Some working mothers criticized Castleberry that “there’s those of us who do all that AND work.” Castleberry defended her post by saying that anyone, whether a working mom or working dad, should be able to “read the message and replace the words with words that fit [their] situation.”
Tired of constantly hearing the phrase “but what do you do all day?”, Florida-based tattoo artist Ryshell Castleberry wrote this post:
It begins with an imagined situation where a husband complains to his psychologist that his “wife does not work”
The list of tasks she does every day doesn’t end there…
Wait…what about the night?
Castleberry then goes on to list all occupations that moms have
“The woman is like salt”
Castleberry’s post was “liked” more than 640K times and received hundreds of positive replies
However, there were moms who said they work and still manage to do all the tasks she listed
But let’s not forget the stay-at-home dads!
