  • I did, but it's more from the busybody moms in my PTA. Not everyone can lead their charmed lives, I guess.

    I wish I had time for water yoga and a massage like I hear them brag, but someone's got to pay the bills!

  • Can't say I have. And if anybody ever tries, I'll very politely tell them to get the hell out of my face...

  • Never

    Answer by rkoloms at 5:58 PM on Oct. 26, 2010

  • Nope never did.

    I never received any ill words or treatment for working outside the home.
    On the flipside.
    I have never received any ill words or treatment for becoming a SAHM either.

    ((well outside of CM that is... LOL))

  • Yes I have and I just tell them that I have to do what is best for my family, just like you have to do what you feel is best for yours.
