    Last time I looked you were working full time in the home and full time outside it – you just don’t get paid for the outside stuff but I bet it adds up to a 35 hour week and more. And the country would crash tomorrow if all those members of the 44% who are putting in 35 hour free on work in the community, being unpaid carers etc stopped doing it

    Yep, I certainly think that full time parenting can be the most challenging job of them all – as well as the most important. Shame on The Irish Times..

    “..they inadvertantly overlooked the 44% of women in Ireland who don’t work.” I think you meant “..they inadvertantly overlooked the 44% of women in Ireland who don’t work outside the home.” as I think you most certianly do work :)

    What about stay at home Dads? No one mentions them. My husband is a stay at home Dad to two 2 year old littles. I’m loving your blog. I just signed up to it today.
