You're only home with the kids! I work, where does your energy go?
Oh yes he did, he said it and my hubby laughed agreeing with his misinformed friend. My hubby made it a point to tell me about the conversation he had with his best friend, the topic was me a SAHM. They just couldn't understand how I could be tired I'm at home all day. You would think his best friend understood considering he has four kids and one on the way, but the difference is his wife has a job outside of the house.
For my hubby to laugh and agree with his best friend was very insulting and I told him so. He responded saying: "The grass is cut, the bills are paid" What I do you can see...I can't see what you do. Toys are everywhere, the house isn't spotless, what do you do?" How he laughed. I read him for filth (meaning I told him off).
Excuse me the clothes you're wearing are clean because of who? The food that you're eating is made by who? The house may not be spotless and toys may be misplaced, but when you have a 1 and 2 year old things will get out of place. The toilet that you use, who cleans up the droplets because at your 35 years of age you still can't aim correctly? The toothbrush, toothpaste who makes sure we're stocked? Who makes sure that your favorite beer and snacks are stocked? Most importantly who is taking care of OUR kids? Teaching them, feeding them, cleaning them, nursing their boo-boos, breaking up their little tifts? So when you fix your mouth to say where my energy goes what you need to do is bow the heck down and thank your lucky stars for me!
