Ok so my two friends at dinner the other night were going back and forth about stay at home moms. Now mind you none of us are, but I was one at one time for a while. I dont remember how the question got brought up but, I pretty much stayed out of it because I dont agree with them. They were saying things like "hell no..I dont need to cook for no one if Im taking care of the kids all day" lol..ok, well I think you should care. So I know I will probably get it for this ;) but yes...if your a stay at home mom, and your husband is working hard to put food on that table...he should have a nice cooked meal and not take out. Ok..take out sometimes..if perfectly fine. But you know what I mean. Also, I know first hand that it is a job in its self to take care of kids..especially if they are really young. But if your kids are in school, or they can sit down and color or play with there toys by them self for a little while...why not keep your house clean? You should, and you should cook something as well. I dont think there is any reason why a woman that stays home and doesnt leave the house besides drive the kids to school, and appointments,should not have her home clean. If your a new mom with maybe a new born...I understand. But I did it with twins. I mean I wasnt mary poppins...but I made sure the house was kept up, and we all had dinner.

This is one of those topics I stay out of in real life. I've been a SAHM for almost 11 years now and have 5 kids (10, 9, 8, 4 1/2 and 4 months) and I don't feel it's my job to do EVERYTHING around the house. I might do most of the cleaning since I'm home but I expect my husband to pitch in and he damn sure will be dealing with the kids when he's home so I can take a break. As for the meals: it's rarely an issue for us because he's usually working during dinner time. I cook for me and the kids and he eats anything that is left...if he wants it. I clean when and if I feel like it and won't clean up after the othe members of the family. I'm not their maid or their slave. Luckily my husband doesn't care about any of that stuff. He knows he could never do my job so he doesn't complain (he can't even deal with the kids for an hour without losing his patience).

Next question overall
Would you rather take a cruise to Hawaii or Alaska?
