Ryshell Castleberry is a tattoo artist from Port Richey, FL, who appreciates the efforts stay-at-home moms are doing for the sake of their families on a daily basis and how their hard work gets unnoticed in most cases.. She showed her support by posting a brutally honest post on her Facebook page. Not long after, Her powerful message has gained a lot of attention.
The viral Facebook post features a hypothetical conversation between a psychologist and a husband who says his housewife “doesn’t work.” But after the husband rattles off a list of his wife’s daily tasks, including getting the kids dressed and ready for school, going to the supermarket, taking care of the baby, cleaning, cooking and putting the kids to bed, it’s clear his definition of “work” is quite skewed.
Now, tell me who wouldn’t agree with this post? Turns out, it’s working moms, who argued in the comments and criticized Castleberry stating that “there’s those of us who do all that AND work.” argued in the comments that they have to complete the same tasks as stay at home moms, but with fewer hours to accomplish their to-do lists.
Frustrated with the backlash, Castleberry added a follow-up note. “IF YOU are any of those things, read the message and replace the words with words that fit your situation.”
