I don't think all working moms are jealous of sahm and vice versa. I am quite content being home with my little ones it was my choice to give up my career to stay at home and be a full-time mom.
I don't assume anything but I think it's annoying when people just randomly start going on and on about how much they love their job when i don't ask, I wonder what their reasoning is and may think they they are jealous.
No. I stay at home and it is what is best for my family... but I know some women prefer to be working moms and that is what is best for their family... I do not think those women are jealous at all. Some women need that interaction.
No, when I stayed at home I didn't think that ALL of them were jealous. But some of therm were, and told me so. Many mom's work 'cause they want to, not have to
I dont feel that way about working moms but i feel that way about myself...
Im currently a SAHM who has to go back to work. Weve had some troubles come up and we cant afford for me to stay at home any longer....I mean...I could go apply for WIC & FS...but to me that is wrong. I am capable of work. I will always work before sticking my hand out...
with that said...I know as soon as I start to work...I'm going to be very jealous of my old SAHM life and very jealous of every mom who gets the luxuary and privlidge of staying home with their children.
Hopefully my working will only be temporary; DH is studying for advancement and we will be relocating soon; hopefully this will help get us back on our feet and I'll be able to go back to doing what I love...raising my daughter
No, I think that some may wish they could do it. But I know more that tell me they don't know how I do it. I never get a break. Sometimes I wish I did work outside the home.
Quoting gum.drop:Not jealous, but I can't understand or wrap my head around why all working moms wouldn't want the opportunity to stay home...
I am a SAHM. I have some friends who work and really enjoy it and others who wish they could be SAHM's. It just depends. No, I don't think ALL working mothers feel "jealous." People have to do what is best for their families.
