    Like most women, I was a working mom sometimes and a stay at home mom other times, depending on what my son needed most at the time.

    When I worked outside the home, I felt guilty that I wasn't home caring for my son.

    When I stayed home, I felt guilty because we had to scrimp and I knew if I went out to work life wouldn't be so economically hard.

    As Hillary Rosen meant to say, Ann Romney has experienced neither of the situations I faced as a mom.

    She doesn't speak for me or most of us.  And frankly, she doesn't even try.

      were babies, my husband's beginning teacher's salary still qualified us for food stamps.  With the Republican plan for teachers this has gotten worse. The dignity of a job doesn't help the pain of begging relatives for enough moeny to feed your kids.
