  • I say "sham" even though the "H" is after the "A"

  • Why are you pronouncing it? Wouldn't you just say 'Stay-At-Home-Mom' in a normal conversation?  SAHM is just easier to type.

  • I say "Stay at home mom." I have never tried to pronounce the acronym for it before. But if I did, I suppose I would say S-A-H-M like one says H-I-V. Sorry, that is an awful reference, but it was all I could think of.

  • lmao!! Why are you trying to pronounce it!!? I say "stay at home mom' aren't suppose to pronounce it. It's just easier than spelling it out.

  • Sachem? There is no C in it! Haha. I say "sam" if I say it aloud, which is rarely.
