PWPL blogger/full-time mother & wife/part-time political staffer Veronique Bergeon shares with readers how she spent her International Women’s Day and concludes with a bit of wisdom denied by most feminists:

Here’s your International Woman’s Day wisdom from the trenches, one day late and rushed between making lunches and wiping runny noses with my power suit: children need taking care of. Bosses need taking care of. There are 24 hours in a day. Choices have consequences. They are either work-related or family-related. Sort it out. Then deal with it.

Bergeron more than ably explains why she stays at home while her husband works (he makes ten times more than she does so it is “not rocket science home economics”). It is the same message Danielle Crittendon had in What Our Mother’s Didn’t Tell Us: Why Happiness Eludes the Modern Woman: very few people can have it all and there is no use in complaining about it.
