Working moms are jealous of stay at home moms!

Posted by   + Show Post

okay maybe just I am lol.. This was my day... I worked from 4-12am.. come home.. haven't seen my husband since Tuesday because of his schedule (6am - 7pm). Crawl into bed.. try to sleep with two small children and two dogs.. up at 7:30am.. rush to get my son ready for preschool.. drop my 4 year old off at 8:45.. take my other son to Strong Start (mom and me program) .. play for 2 hours trying to stay awake..thank god they have coffee because I did not have time to make any or eat. Drag my son kicking and screaming away from his friends to get his brother at 11:15.. drag both of them hungry and whiney to the grocery store after stopping for a new cloth diaper and pants.. because my sons leaked and I forgot to bring one. Yes I was THAT mother.. stripping my kid in the parking lot because leaving my 4 year old strapped in his car seat was easier then dragging them both to the washroom. Feed them while shopping.. still haven't eaten myself.. Grocery shop.. load.. unload.. with two small children one of which has behavioral issues and takes off every two seconds or melts down entirely.. manage to get out of the store.. get home.. unpack groceries.. its now 1pm and I am finally eating..

then i get to clean my house.. get ready for work.. drag the kids to pick up my babysitter because she doesn't drive and she smokes in her house so she has to come to mine.. (she doesn't smoke in my house)..then run to work and deal with behaviorally challenged teens for 8 hours.. get home at midnight.. finally see my husband maybe?

oh and i have a birthday party, a retirement party and my brothers welcome home from Indonesia party to plan for this weekend.. guess where it is? My house.. guess where everyone is staying? my house..

fuck my life.. SAHM's yes I'm hating on you today lol PURE JEALOUS!!!

it has nothing to do with not feeling it necessary. Some times you have to work to support your family properly.

Quoting RunningMommaof2:

I guess it depends on the person and their situation. When I worked... I feel like it was killing me inside to be away from my kids. But, I know other people that absolutely hate being a SAHM. They don't feel it as necessary as I do to be with their kids all the time and prefer to work. It just depends.

I enjoyed working quite a bit and I absolutely miss it in a lot of ways.

I also enjoy being a SAHM. I just had to find ways to spend my time. I just volunteered in my son's Kindergarten class from 12:30-2:30 today, I have friends that I meet up with for coffee, lunch, golf, joined a country club, etc. I'm quite content.

Quoting Mom24munchkins:

I did your schedule (4pm to 12am, sometimes as late as 2am) for 3 years. One year (last year I worked) I homeschooled on top of it. I sooooo feel your pain :( I'm sorry lady!

that was me last year.. I also homeschooled my 14 year old.. but I worked as well on the weekends.. at least I am monday - friday now.

I'm exhausted today too. I love my job, but I'm just so busy. And I'm hosting my mom's bday/engagement party this weekend.

But I did get to climb on the roof of my workplace (public library) and take pictures of a funeral procession. It was interesting! I've never been up there before.

Ooof this is why I'm glad I'm a SAHM. You should really look into it.

I can't handle the stress that is working and trying to do everything around the house, run the kids where they need to go, etc..... I commend those of you that can! I've been home going on 2 years now and I love it!

Only time I'm jealous is when I have to crawl out of my comfy bed. Otherwise, not at all.
