I'm sorry.

When I was working full time while pregnant and read "I'm a SAHM not a maid" I'm sorry for thinking (and maybe saying) "if he brings home the check you should be doing everything"


Yeah..... I get the difference now.

I'm now a SAHM for my 3.5mo old son.

My duties:
Take care of our son
Teach him
EBF
Clean
Cook
Laundry
Etc...

NOT on my fucking to-do list:
Picking up trash left EVERYWHERE because he can't walk to the trash can.
Scrubbing coffee and sugar off of the counter (like, the whole fucking counter) from him making ONE cup of coffee and LEAVING the mess.
Picking up his bag of hair from when he cut it- that he left NEXT to the trash can. (Wtf? Really??)

....I'm sure there's more.

So yes, I agree:
SAHM
Not a fucking maid.



coffee:

yes, made with paint, but NOT an exaggeration




OH and i do crafting in my "spare" time! (to relax) like these guys:



****

guess what i found this morning???


coffee grounds on the counter..........  SMH well that lasted long

All those things, I've had to address with my DH as well. Every one. I'm a SAHM, but for christ's sake, I'm not HIS mother. I've come to appreciate days he's working, from a cleaning standpoint... It's much easier to clean up after two small children than one giant one.

Awesome! Yeah I got sick & tired of the small shit like that. I could not stand how my now ex SO would notice something such as an outlet without a cover & he would bellow from wherever he was to me to inform me of this, which was fine I may have forgotten to put it back on BUT then he'd walk away & not do it, he'd expect me to do it. WTF you were right there, just fucking put the cover on the god damn outlet, simple. His socks would get stuffed in the fucking couch, tossed on the floor, etc PICK UP YOUR FUCKING SOCKS. Simple shit, really simple, yet if he had done some of it would have made the world of difference.
