Confessions of a SAHM

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I act like being a sahm is SO hard. Dh even feels bad some days when he comes home because I look "frazzled." Little does he know, I look that way because I just woke up from a nap! Yes I do the cleaning, laundry, cooking and all the other crap sahm's do, but it seriously isn't that much work. I have maybe one busy day a week and the rest I just hang out, play with ds and watch tv. This is the life!!! 

*Ds will be starting k next year...seems like a good time to start talking about having more kids again! :)

Lol, I got the impression that she only has one. You have one in school and a little one at home. If op does have baby #2, she may have to kiss those naps goodbye! Especially with one in school. She better enjoy it while she can.

Wish I could say that..LOL! No naps here. I am constantly cleaning,doing laundry,mopping,cleaning bathrooms..you name it. Plus I have a child in school and a 1yr old so I am busy with helping at the school,and errands so a nap isn't even in the picture. Good for you though! Lol

LOL same here!

LOL. My children are far harder than yours. Temper tantrums from my two year old and the whole nine yards are enough to make me look frazzled.

Speak for yourself. My kids are 3, 2, and 9 months old. I also make it seem harder than it is but it isn't easy.

 I wish it was that easy. . . but my children are wild.  And I have 7 of them... so I am indeed a hard working SAHM.. . . when you have mulitple children, things get a lot harder... so if you want more, then enjoy only have 1 now while you can.

I'm a SAHM with no kids at home. They're all in school. I'm kidfree from 8:00-3:00. I do clean, cook, do laundry & shop. My kids are old enough to clean their own bedrooms & bathrooms & do their own laundry. But there's always something to do at home. I do give myself one day a week off. Where I don't do a single thing!!! I lay around and catch up on my shows. Oh wait, I still make dinner on my day off lol.
