Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

My daughter's asleep, and I have a job. So why are YOU on here?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

When I see these posts that say shit like "I'm a such and such, ask me anything" I can't help but notice that they never come from anyone that I would actually even WANT to have a conversation with. Bragging about being on PA, but not working or contributing to your own family. That is not what a SAHM is. That is just laziness. . Does anyone else wonder why they aren't playing with their kids if they are that bored?

For the record, it's naptime in THIS house. My house is clean to;)..lol I'm a SAHM, but I clean houses and bust my ass in the evening when my husband gets home so that he doesn't have all the financial weight on his shoulders. If you CAN'T work, thats understandable. But to be able-bodied enough to sit around and play online all day shows me that you COULD do some type of job. Just my thoughts....

No, I don't have a job, nor do I need one.  My husband makes oodles of money (and no, I"m not making that up).  My youngest is a senior in high school, it's still early here, I've made her a hot breakfast which is waiting for her in the warming drawer.  My husband is still asleep, he'll get up in a bit.

I don't get a job because I am the "go to" person for everything else.  I travel with my husband, I travel to help out our elderly relatives, I visit our kids who live out of state.  I take care of all errands. I pay all bills.  I do all cooking, dishes, laundry.  My husband works long erratic hours, so depending on him to do stuff around the house means it frequently wouldn't get done.

I just had surgery so I am stuck on the couch one way or the other today. We homeschool and run a home business so usually I am on here while I monitor my kids doing school work. They are all teenagers.  My house is not spottless but it will be by the time DH gets home from work and dinner will be on the table.  I am ordering everyone from my throne today....lol

My kids live with their dad during the school year so for 9 months I'm childless. Its their choice and we live 900 miles away from each other. I am currently looking for a new job...have an interview tomorrow. My place is always clean. I pop on here in between filling out online job applications.

Wait... What? Able-bodied enough to sit around? That... Really doesn't take much.
Glad you're able-bodied enough to criticize other people's family dynamics and financial choices. Have fun with that.
