Oh and just cause a person has a housekeeper, it does not mean they are lazy. It opens up lots of opportunities to volunteer, do all sorts of things, etc. I don't have one, but I wouldn't mind having one every now and then. I also know people who have them because of medical issues. A woman can be a sahm, and have a house keeper. There is no law that says the sahm HAS to do the cleaning all herself. If I could afford it, I would have one come in once or twice a week. My dh said he would love if he could give me that, but he can't. Lazy would mean the sahm, did nothing, not playing with the kids, not cooking, never lifting a finger. Just because she has a housekeeper come in does not mean she does nothing. Or at least that is the way I have seen it with women I know who have had a house keeper. I have friends that do house cleaning and it pays well.

In every post I see where the SAHM says she has a housekeeper Yall act like she's not doing her job
Quoting bearscubed:That kind of sounds like a contradiction.

I'm not mad, I just feel like it's not necessary unless there is an underlying medical issue. I feel that, if you are a SAHM, your responsibility is to your children, spouse, and home. Even IF we could afford it, I wouldn't have a housekeeper. My husband goes out and works hard for the money we have. MY job is to clean the house, cook the meals, and raise the kids.

It's nothing to get mad about but it makes no sense to have a housekeeper when YOU ARE the housekeeper.
