The Husbands Of Sahms:)

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

 I have been a proud homemaker for many years.I have seen so much trash talk about sahms on this confession board(from being lazy or uneducated).

My husband is very happy that I am a sahm and have been all these years.He and my kids appreciate all that I do and I have gone to college and had a career.I just prefer to be at home...where I feel happiest:)

If my husband has no problem with me being at home.Why do so many people have a personal issue with it when it is none of their concern?

If you are a sahm how does your husband feel about you being at home?Working moms have you ever discussed being a sahm with your husband?

We discussed it and agreed...I would still have a career.  I love it and feel I can have both.  I also don't feel it should be just my husband supporting our family.  My mom was a sahm and my dad worked 80 hours/week or more.  I swore I would never have my husband do that just so I could stay home.  I do work out of choice though.  It is peace of mind knowing I can support this family if needed on my own.  My family is very proud of my contributions I have made to this family.  I still am homeroom mom, breastfeed, volunteer at my son's school, etc.

Thank you

Quoting kattu:

I understand feeling like your daughter would be better off with her parents together. Message me if you need to talk about it.

Quoting Liz.Sisk:

Well. I think about leaving sometimes. But I know my daughter needs both parents. He plays with her, that's about it. But I don't want her to lose a parent. I think I won't mind as much if I work two jobs. Because then I'll be so busy he won't be able to complain. Or. I'll be too busy to pay attention.

Quoting kattu:

Why are you with that douche bag?

Quoting Liz.Sisk:

I was a sahm for 10 months. He kept complaining saying I did nothing and that I needed to help pay the bills. I have a job now. He now complains that I need to take care of the baby more even though she sleeps while I'm at work. Apparently all I do is lay around and let her run all over the floor helpless and crying until he gets home. Mind you he rarely changes diapers and has never once given her a bath since she was born. Also refused to feed her for the first 9months. He doesn't know what he wants. I love being a sahm but I also love working. So I do both, and I am happy that I do.

I've been a sahm for. 2.5 yrs. We are both happy with the decision. It's the way we feel is best to raise our children.
