After 10 years of being a homeschooling SAHM, I'm now working and DH is a homeschooling SAHD. I work two jobs, six days a week, 3 12-hour shifts and 3 8-hour shifts as a nurse. DH is a far better stay-at-home partner than I ever was; the house is cleaner and the meals are healthy and he's happy and the kids are happy and while it may be a bit sobering to realize that your husband is an awesome wife when you were a mediocre one, I'd far rather everyone is happy than know I was Superwoman. What amuses me is the way that once I started working, things like the kids' bickering would annoy me more and sometimes I would be too tired or stressed out from the day to want to have sex or I'd forget to kiss him when I got home because I pre-occupied with getting out of my MRSA-covered uniform scrubs. Anyone else experience this sort of thing? What's your story?Answer Question

LOL, no...but i liked reading your story. People nowadays get so caught up on female & male roles. I'm glad that you guys worked something out that works great for both of you. Way to break the stereotype barrier. I dig it! I think it's real cool that your husband makes a great stay at home dad.
I DO remember coming home after a long days work & not having the mental capacity to deal with whining children. That i can relate to.
