Drive luxury cars, help your family financially, go on vacations, cruises, get your hair done anytime you want, buy your children the best clothing and shoes, take them out to the movies, enroll them in all sorts of sports, including traveling sporting events? Come on I am tired of this answer section being dominated by SAHM and them rubbing their budgeting sense in everyone's face. I work and I am damn proud of it. I can go wherever and whenever I want. So, let's here it.
SAHM: You don't have to respond. It's not concerning you.

Funny, when I was a working mom (I taught) it did not lead to many of the things you have listed here. Luxury cars are a waste of money, I still help my family financially by working at home, we go on more vacations now because my schedule is more flexible, I don't have any desire to go on a cruise, I get my hair cut once every two years so I can donate it, my kids understand the value of good clothing and play clothing - we don't need to show off to impress everyone, we go to the movies as often as we want and my kids don't care for sports any more than I do - but we are active in other organizations. I don't see the "benefits' you described as being something only for all working moms - many working moms don't get them and many SAHMs do. Your logic is flawed.

I guess if the only way you can afford these nice things is to be a 'working mom' then your hubby isn't making enough!
::eye roll::Well GEE we have a smart one in the house.
I understand your life, for I lived it when I was a child. My dad made a KILLING, and my mom never had to work. Hell, I still have some benefits as an adult with having a father in his position. HOWEVER, I know Some cannot even afford that with TWO incomes now a days. It's rough out there for many families. Maybe you didn't intend it this way, I just think that comment makes you sound like a BITCH. ::SHRUGS::
