Tired of constantly hearing the phrase “but what do you do all day?”, Florida-based tattoo artist Ryshell Castleberry decided to write a tribute to all stay-at-home mothers via Facebook. It exploded. Her powerful post has been “liked” over 640,000 times and shared by more than 300,000 people. It may seem like a lot, but that’s not enough. It has to be read by everyone to really appreciate all of the enormous sacrifices moms make for the sake of their children.
However, not everyone agreed with her post. Some working mothers criticized Castleberry that “there’s those of us who do all that AND work.” Castleberry defended her post by saying that anyone, whether a working mom or working dad, should be able to “read the message and replace the words with words that fit [their] situation.”
