Quoting Not tellin:" Nobody is asking you to downplay being a SAHM. Your insecure statement of them being bitter because ... [snip!] ... with kid play. Other than that, this is cake! It could also be that I am comparing this to my career pre-children as well. "
Dude, you are really trippin. I said I was jealous of SAHMs when I was working .
I know it comes down to choices...as it is a choice for me. Some can afford to be a SAHM mom and some can't. Some love to be a SAHM and some don't. I was simply saying if they are going to brag...there is nothing wrong with bragging on how great being a SAHM is.
They are not going to hesitate to talk about how great their job is, how much they make, and what they do and accomplish.
I am not going to hesitate to brag on being a SAHM.
I waited 10 yrs to be a SAHM and I am happy being one. When my kids get older I plan to work again. It is a choice. I don't need a lecture on my wording nor do I need any drama for not being all extra humble.
Btw..I said half the time...not all the time.
So read everything.....before you decide to be extra dramatic and have tantrum.
I said (half the time) because i know that is not the case with everybody.
About it being harder than working...YES for me
some days it is. There are days that make my old jobs look extra easy. There are days when being a SAHM is a piece of cake. I was not talking about how it is for you. Stop making things more than they are. You are being EXTRA sweetheart.
Now thank you darling and have a nice day.
