Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

I find it strange that people think women should only be home the shortest amount of time possible and working.

Some of us like being housewives, but if you are not caring for a baby or toddler we are told to get in the work force. Makes one feel like they are a bit worthless. 

(no, the latest poster asking questions in her own post didn't make me feel like this, but the responses to her post sure did)

 I loved working, but our household works better when I am at home, so I stay home.  Clearly I'm not worthless if I am making life better for my family.

Doing whatever you wanted all day would bore you to tears?

Being a housewife doesn't mean you have to stay in the house all day.

All three of mine are in school and I'm still a SAHM.  Days like today and yesterday (when the kids are sick and need to stay home) I'm grateful I don't have a job I have to constantly call out from.

Im a housewife and I never intend to return to the workforce. My son started a full day of school this year. It works for us. I could care less what anyone else thinks.
