I cannot to it all. I wish the sahm and breastfeeding bashers truly knew how hard it actually is! Your life consists of being a maid to your children and husband, a cook for your family and any potluck/event you or your dh is invited to, a teacher to your children,the food sorce so when baby is hungry you can't just prop up or hand them a bottle you have to stop whatever your doing to make sure your baby is happy, your job is 24/7 with no sick days or vacation, your needs and wants come dead last to make sure your dh and children are happy, 99% of the time your are never alone to have quite time, you have to deal with all the grocery shopping with the kids, the bills, all the Dr appointments, school events and meetings, if your in school your homework comes after everything including your sanity, any problems or stress falls on you because you are the go to person, you never get good sleeping because someone always needs something from you, your dh will be a lazy ass when home because "he works and you don't " . I just give up on trying to better myself. I can't do everything for everyone else and still have time to work on losing weight, go to school to get a career, and keep my sanity. Every ounce of me goes to every one else and I get forgotten about.

You made the choice to bf and to stay home.

I'm a SAHM and I am no maid. I don't do it all. Fuck that shit. I'm part of a team.

I get it. While you sound like you have hit rock bottom I haven't. I had surgery Monday and dh has had to take over a lot. He went back to work today and told me he was amazed I was sane. He finally found out what it was like to be me. You need a break momma.

 well i know its tough but its what we do. My kids are in school full time and the husband works full time so i pretty much have the house to myself during the day and i'm able to get everything done. But I am the type of woman that lives for my family and making them happy and making sure they have everything so i never complained about it. it gets easier as the kids get older. hang in there

I hear you, I am in the same boat except for the breast feeding, my youngest is 4. You forgot the secretary for social events, party planner. Oh yea... And social media police for the 15 year old. Homework checker...sucks for the High Schooler as they are learning stuff I have NO CLUE about. Plus my husband is gone 80% of the time for work. He tried to sell me stay in 5 star hotels, traveling all over the world is hard!

If you have help and support you can handle it. I just have a lazy ass dh so it makes things twice as hard.

I'm not sure what this has to do with bashers. All of this is stuff you put on yourself. I get stressed about all the work that comes with being a mom and housewife, but I find ways to lessen that stress. Don't be a maid to your children and husband, they can pull their weight too. Order out or go out to dinner from time to time to get a break. Have "make your own sandwich for dinner" night. If your husband can't accommodate giving you a break or "day off" then that is something you married into, not everyone does.
