  • Tell these people to mind their own dam business bc as long as your kids are taken care of, you're providing them the essentials (gas, water, elec., etc....), and paying those bills ur a dam good mother. And if any of them don't have kids and/or neices/nephews (be them theirs or they are raising them) they have no room to talk. Because it's hard enough being a mom, let alone being the housekeeper and bank!

  • I want to get paid to be a wife and mother. It truly is the hardest job in the world and we don't get enough recognition for it. I have a good bf who helps out around the house but some days it seems like the work never ends and I just want a break. So yeah I feel you.

  • Don't worry about what other people think. I work full time and have five kids. I just accepted that my house is not going to be spotless all the time- it is not dirty - just lived in and messy most times. It just gets to be too much, I used to stress about it and worry about what people thought - now I don't care what people think now. When I was growing up my mom never kept a spotless house - and that is not what I dwell on. I remember that she spent time with us.
    I stopped caring what other people think. When you are gone, your kids aren't going to be remembering you for how clean your house was, but for what you did with them and how much you loved them. So stop caring about what others think and just keep you and your family happy.
