See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I am getting so sick and tired of all the posts from other moms complaining how their DHs don't help, and they're tired of having to do everything on their own. Wah. Cry me a freaking river. What did you think you were signing up for when you decided to have children and stay at home with them?
Don't you think your husbands are stressed out??? Some of them have bosses that are totally unrealistic in their expectations, make your man's life miserable for anywhere from 8 to 14 hours a day (sometimes longer), and yet he has to suck it up and keep bringing the money home so that you and the kids can have a roof over your heads, food on the table, clothes on your backs, and little extras too that he sometimes feels like you don't appreciate. To top it off, some of those men come home to messy houses, crying and fighting children, and a wife that complains how he doesn't help out and doesn't appreciate her.
Stop already. As a stay-at-home-mother, the children and home are our responsibilities. Unless you plan on going out and making enough so that your husband can take over your roll, count your blessings that you do have a husband who gets up and goes to work everyday. Life is not a Hallmark card where everything is perfect, the kids are well behaved, and no one ever gets tired. We're all tired and can use some "me time." You'll get it when the kids are older and you can actually do something for yourself while they're in school, even if it's only soak in the tub with a hot cup of tea and a good book.
PSA over. Carry on!
