I'm a WAHM not a SAHM!!

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
There's a difference. I refuse to fall under the stereotype SAHM. I'm not lazy as I do more than a SAHM!!

I'm not against a SAHM. I just believe in making my fair share.

How many times can we all debate this?!? You all are f~ing nuts if you ask me. People who choose to really be parents are busy as heck, no matter what title we decide to hold. I am the queen of my house. That's my title. Get over yourselves. Life is to short to care what ANYONE thinks, Esp some crazy Moms on Cafemom...HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!! Smile because it looks better then a mean I'm judging you face!!

I think when people feel the need to put others down and to justify themselves it shows that they are actually insecure with their own choice.  If the OP is really happy with being a WAHM then she would have no reason to post this in my opinion......  Maybe she secretely wishes she could be a SAHM or maybe she wishes she worked outside the home or something.  Who knows, but hopefully she gets her happiness figured out for the sake of her kids. 

Quoting JWhite27:

 Perfectly put. I have been a sahm for about a year. I think its funny how people say they r fine with what they do but then they have to down others. There is a mom who put on here that not only do they work and take care of the kiddos and house but also goes to college. I guess the original poster is just a lazy wahm to her WCAHM lol. Wonder how she feels being the bottom feeder to that mom. lmao.. Angry people make me laugh.

Quoting countrygirlkat:

I have no issue with you being a WAHM and being proud of it but why do you have to insult others who make other choices and are proud of what they do?  I am a proud SAHM.  It is what is best for our family and I am proud of what I do and I am by no means in any sense of the word lazy.  While I am proud of what I do though, I know that what is best for my family may not be best for anybody else's family so if they choose instead to be a working mom outside of the home or a WAHM then that is great for them.  There are sterotypes for all types of moms that are positive and sterotypes for all types of moms that are negative.

If yur so proud of yurslf y don't u say who u r, y do u hide? That just don't make since, I'm proud of myslf but don't want people to know. That just tells me yur not really proud of yurslf.

Quoting Anonymous:

That still doesn't make me lazy.  Just because you work and I don't doesn't mean I am lazy.  Thats not how that works.  It just means that my DH makes enough money that I can concentrate all my efforts on making his life, our kids' lives, and our home as comfortable as possible.

Quoting Anonymous:

And some of us work 10 hour days and do all the housework at home and take care of our children. No kudos for you.

Quoting Anonymous:

I am a sahm and I am not lazy.  I do my share.  I cook, clean, teach our children, all while DH is at work.  I work 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.  He works 10 hour days 4 days a week.  I don't ask him to do much when he is home.  I don't think Sahms are lazy at all.

I'm a sahm mom and far from lazy! I do everything in the house, tend to the childern 24/7, have a special needs son, babysit my sister's kids, and am in school full time. This house is pretty much always clean, the kids always are taken care of. I do it on my own. I don't know where you get that all sahm's are lazy.

No, I have an OR in my basement and a rocket laboratory in my attic.

Quoting dandylynes:

Wouldn't that make you a working mom? Unless you're doing brain surgery on your children :P

Quoting EmmaGlenn20:

Oh yeah? Well I'm a SAHM AND I do brain surgery during the afternoon and build rockets during the evening....sooooo...yeah.

Stay-at-home mothers don't have to justify their career choice. What you choose as a mom is up to you. It's your thing. Your decision to make money working from home does not make other SAHMs -- those not earning money -- any less worthy.

yes because sacrafising the good of your children on the altar if your 'caree'r makes you an AWESOME mom. go you. Idiot.
