Am I the only happy SAHM out there?

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.

I loved it! I was home with my children for 7 years and I wouldn't have traded that time for anything.

I LOVE it! But I do feel bad that my dh is the only one providing income so I'm going to be starting my own at home business. :))

Nope. Most SAHMs I know are very happy.

But we have great husbands who help us out, respect us and appreciate ever2we do.

We also live the life we want, drive where we want, whenever we want, have access to all of our money, socialize, have time to relax and recharge and just generally enjoy having the freedom of not having to work around a work schedule in order to spend time with our family or participate in activities we love.

It's sad that there are so many unhappy moms on here.. but I don't think they're unhappy because they're home with their kids. It's usually a marital issue and they place blame elsewhere.
