Is it "abnormal" to be a stay-at-home mom or something? I am literally the 1 and only sahm in my area and people are not nice about it. My dh's family, friends, and co-workers bother him constantly about how "lazy" I am. We made the decision TOGETHER for me to stay home with out dd, it's actually helping us financially because of daycare costs. Dh has people coming up to him randomly and asking if I'm working yet, if I have dinner waiting for him when he gets home (at 2 in the afternoon btw), and if I ever take breaks from cleaning etc. They tell him to "keep me in check" and that I need to get a job because I'm just lazy and using him. WTF is up with this attitude people have and why is being a sahm such a "terrible" thing that they need to butt into our lives?!? Does anyone else get this treatment?Answer Question

I never heard negative remarks when I was a SAHM. When I went back to work is when I got the nasty catty remarks from some women I knew.

I would inform them all that they are not part of my marriage and if they intend on keeping their nose attached to their face they need to remove their nose from our business. I would also inform them that "I" would be keeping them in check to be sure they stayed out of my marriage. Your husband needs to start asserting himself and advise them to butt out also.
