Why do SAHM consider that a job???? I have no idea why. Believe me I am not saying it isn't rewarding and difficult at the same time...but I still dont see how you consider it a job watching your own kids.

I myself could never be a SAHM and I envy those that are bc I would just go nuts...call me a bad parent or whatever I was meant to WORK not stay at home. My SO stays home and it works for him LOL He doesnt consider it a job.

So do I have a fulltime job and then I am just a part time mommy??? I dont get it OL

I don't think it's a job... it can be a lot of work, but not a job.

I'm a SAHM and I do not consider it a job.. More like a duty to my family. LOL But I get an "allowance" weekly so I get paid!

It's not a job, as in employment. But when I was a sahm I always said that was my "job". My job to care for the kids and house. If someone asked what I did I wouldn't say"nothing I'm unemployed." Lol does that make sense?
