Does it seem as though after you started staying home and raising your children, your husband thinks you are not as smart as you once were?

  • My husband treats me like im stupid he even calls me it every once in awhile. I told him if he doesnt quit tho im leaving him. I know im not stupid and i think it's awsome that you ladies stay home and take care of your children. It takes alot to raise a child even when there's more than one lol

  • DH doesn't think that, but I sort of do. LOL Lack of real adult conversation (which explains my sick attachement to cafemom) has drastically reduced my lexicon and critical thinking skills....but I can sing silly songs now......

  • yes. i like to prove it every once in a while by letting him take the lead on some common problem. When he's given up, i step in and fix it with no problem. I also let him flounder with his problems before i step in to help him. It's not that I'm trying to make him suffer, but he has issues deciding which socks to wear (not kidding) and i need to make him a bit more independent.

  • luckily my hubby realizes he's got a genius at home. But no seriously I feel not quite as intelligent as I once was, I keep getting the jepordy questions wrong, lol. I guess I should start reading more intellectual books again rather then recent best sellers.

  • No, and if he ever thought for a second that I was not his eaqual he would have some hefty explaining to do.
