WOW, So you are one of those! Just to be clear WORKING is what a SAHM does all day everyday. You sound like you just want to fee like you are better than you are. You are a SAHM, get over it. WE ALL WORK!
It's sad that so many don't see the value in having a parent stay home with the kids. I was a SAHM for 10 years (and I still am sometimes). I did/do my fair share.
I love how WAHMs always make statements about us SAHMs not contributing or earning our fair share to the household income. I think really they have issue with the fact they do not have men who can take care of them/ want to take care of them.
They miss that most of us SAHMs take care of most everything that our DH would need ( housework, kids, cleaning, food, shopping, etc..) We just had a meeting with our Ins guy to look at our Life coverage and when he was looking at how much I should be insured for the figure was just as much as my husbands because of how much it would cost him to bring someone in to do what I do. So go ahead and tell me I do not contribute...
I work and go to school because I have no choice since I'm a single Mom but I don't spit on SAHM's. I wouldn't want to ever do it but some of them work damn hard. It also means they have the time to work on the projects that I do not. Their time management may be different than mine, but as long as kids are healthy and happy..who cares! I sometimes wonder what would happen if my son and I didn't have to live by such rigid routines in order to get everything accomplished. Then my head explodes as I can't imagine it
Cool story bro.
