I just recently became a SAHM. Prior to, I was a student and employee. I just received my B.S. in May and we're moving in October. So, DH and I made the decision that its best if i wait until we move to find employment. I have always been a hard worker. So, I approach being a Stay at home mom as my job. I work hard at it. I set goals and tasks, and I complete them in a timely manner. It's not acceptable for me to sit around when I'm at work, so I dont sit around while I'm at home as a SAHM. I say this to ask, why is it that some SAHMs act like they're on vacation?! In my opinion, if your husband is busting his ass to earn income for the family, you should work equally as hard-- whether you're working in the home or away from the home. Why is it that some SAHMs dont approach it as a job, but moreso as a break? It annoys me. Does it annoy anyone else? I feel like its those lazy SAHMs that give the rest of us hard working SAHMs a bad name! If you dont treat being a SAHM as your job-- dont expect anyone else to view it as such!
