At first I was confused. Why did Red (does she work in daycare?) take shoes off a toddler to photograph them and what's so wrong about the shoes anyway? Yeah, they're white shoes for a toddler and the comment says they live in the Pacific NW where it rains all the time so they'd get muddy, but you can always clean them ... then I was enraged at Red's "When your kids are in daycare for 50 hours a week it's IMPOSSIBLE to know who they are" and "There is almost ALWAYS a choice to stay home and raise your own children." WTF? What about single parents or people who live in very high COL areas and can't get by on one income or women who just love their careers and want to go back to work? And why is it always the working moms who get trashed on, and never working dads?
I dunno, I feel like this is really gross. I wonder if a lot people think like these women do, because that's really sad if so. At my old job and at my job now, there were lots of working moms and lots of pregnant women who came back to work after their 8 weeks of maternity leave. It wasn't a big deal at all. And I was in day care until my mom suffered some injuries as a partial result of giving birth to my sister and it didn't mess me up.
