  • The biggest thing is that EVERYTHING is my responsibility and therefore, if I fail at doing it correctly, my fault.
    From cavities in my teens teeth, to paying bills, household chores and plans for the future.

  • I think it's not having an identity outside of my home and my kids. I love them...but I am my own individual underneath....so it's hard to find a balance, because being a SAHM, wife and caretaker of a home is a lot of work. You never seem to feel, I never seem to feel, like I ever get caught up on it all!

  • i agree with coping with losing your own identity and sense of independence. i can easily handle my 2 babies and my house most days. but i miss "being me".

  • The work NEVER being done.
    People touching you constantly.
    Lack of privacy.
