I was excited about my part time job....that is until I announced it on Facebook....my sister said it's not really a job..its just a little extra money...my.cousin says I was being selfish and greedy cuz I am working....I can't win for nothing. I have five kids...one is mentally retarded one has autism..plus three normal.children...I am angry and hurt...poll don't understand if they have never HD a special needs kid....it's different if you around them, or babysit, or have one in your family....you get to go home...but us(all mamas in here) it's our life....

Vent over....thanks ladies

I have a part-time job I love! It gets me out and talking to others.  It's a break from home and they enjoy a break from me as well! Enjoy it and forget about negative nellies!

I'm so sorry. I think it's great that you have a pt job. Sometimes what's best for mama is what's best for the family. Getting out of the house for a bit gives you a chance to recharge so you can be the best mom you can be. There's nothing wrong with that.

 Don't let them get to you. You know what's best for you and your family. Besides with everything that you do you need to have the chance to"be selfish". Bet it makes you a better Momma because it gives you the chance to recharge. Tell them to stick it.

Can you tell I'm not in a good mood today? lol

I would love a part time job especially once Jacob starts school.

Sorry your family isn't more supportive!

Wow.... I am sorry they're being nasty. You do what you need to do. If you are going somewhere for a set amount of time, doing what you're told and getting paid- it's a job. I don't know what definition your sister is using. And your cousin... Well. Her life must be extremely boring if she has to butt into yours. She needs a hobby, if getting a job is selfish and greedy.

I'm sorry they aren't being very supportive.  I would just do what you feel is right for you and your kids and ignore those who have nothing better to do than weigh in on your life when you didn't ask them to.
