I agree with the article wholeheartedly. I think she hits the nail on the head with the line 'motherhood is not a vocation- it's a relationship'.
I hate the phrase 'being a mum is the hardest job in the world' for a whole range of reasons. And it IS used mainly to describe SAHMs, and to denigrate working mums. If being a mum is the hardest job in the world, working mums are seen as copping out a bit by going to do an 'easier' job somewhere else.
I also agree with her that the discussion of motherhood is bloody old and tired. Let's start talking about parenting, not mothering.
