Being a sham does not make a woman lazy, what the hell difference does it make we are are all mothers, that is a friggi hard job. I guess there has to be one shit starter on this topic every once in a while.
I'm a full time student but I don't have classes online, I take them all at a university. DF's family are all talking about how lazy I am for a SAHM because I don't have dinner done when DF gets home. Of course not, I've been at school all day, then drove to 3 schools to pick up the kids, then helped out my older 2 with homework. Some nights DF makes dinner...
When I was a SAHM meaning not at school all day- dinner, laundry, and everything else was done. That act like 13 credits is nothing and I should have all that time...
Hmm. There's that term again: work at home mom. You could save yourself some typing and just say "mom." I've yet to meet a mother who didn't have work to do at home.
Oh you mean you happen to earn some money and it's possible to do your job at home. If you're doing all of that, why do you need so much validation? I'd think you'd be too busy for that.
Wow. That is highly offensive!!! As a SAHM, I don't see myself as lazy and neither do my husband or kids.
I have seen many times that the absolute worst kids are from situations where the mother is a WAHM -- that is, she is staying home in order to not put the kids in daycare, but is trying to do some sort of outside work, so the kids don't really get much of the attention of the SAHM, because instead of dealing with the kids, she's doing this other work. Being a SAHM mom is a huge amount of work, and personally, I don't like it. So if you don't want to be a SAHM, admit it, and put your kids into childcare. That way, at least they get what they need.
