If one of your friends made you feel like you were a bum for being a SAHM? She asked me yesterday "Are you EVER going to go back to work?" I have a 7 year old special needs child and a 14 month old. Once I told her that I got my DH an XM radio for his birthday. She was like "Really, don't you mean HE did?" I was like what? She said "Well, he's the one who works". And proceded to ask me that I didn't feel like I was buying him a gift with his money? I got really angry and told her I earn my share around here! I've gotten to where I avoid her calls because no matter how nicely the conversation starts out she has to get her digs in.

Sounds like your friend is jealous and makes these rude digs at you to make herself feel better. I bet if she stayed home with her children 24/7 she will quickly see how much work it really is. Going back to her paying job would probably be a break!! My friend once told me that being a SAHM was brainless...when she stayed home during a school break she called me asking me how do I do it?? Tell your friend to stop making those rude judgements if being a SAHM is okay with you why is it her problem??? By the way I have nothing against working moms, I feel to each their own!!
