It seems like we've had a lot of depressing SAHM posts. Am I the only one that has it fairly easy being a SAHM. I get plenty of free time. My husband will often help put down the kids at night. He invests in a ROTH IRA every year for me so I have a nice retirement account. I let him know I am taking money out but he doesn't give me a hard time spending. I do 90% of the cooking and cleaning but I think that is easy compared to his job. Yes, I was the one that probably worked harder when the children were little. I was the one up with sick little ones and surviving on little sleep. Now that they're older, he is the one that is working harder and I have a fairly easy life.
