UPDATE I laugh when people say being a SAHM is the hardest job ever!

I mean seriously!

I can wear pj's all day if I want to. I don 't have to look nice. If I don't feel well, well then things don't get done that day. It's really no big deal. I can nap when my kids take a nap. My husband lets me go get my hair and nails done on a regular basis. I just don't get it. It's not that hard. It's not like I'm out mining for coal or deploying or fighting fires. Those jobs are a lot harder than mine. I get to hang out with my kids all day every day. That is the easiest job to me. 

OH MY GOSH!!!!

BAHAHAHAHA!

Y'all got your panties in a twist over this post! I'm sorry ladies, I don't care what your circumstances are it is NOT the hardest job in the world! It's just not. I never once said it wasn't hard but please don't try to act like a bunch of martyrs because you take care of your spawn. 

Also, as far as my husband "letting me" do anything I meant it as he encourages me to take time for myself, he takes care of the home and the kids with zero resolutions, and doesn't care what I do as long as I'm happy. NOT an attitude I see around here from significant others all that often and I am very grateful for him! I apologize for not wording it correctly. I thought you would know what I meant.

Carry on.

Not everyone has it so good.

I think the reason that's said most of the time, is because you don't get to rest when you are sick and things like that.

I think many people belittle it too much, but I agree it isn't the hardest job ever by far. Flight traffic controllers have things quite a bit more stressful I think...

i think the 'my husband lets me' is the part that turns a lot of us off.

Well, considering I haven't walked in everyone's shoes and know what their life is like, I don't laugh. That being said, MOST DAYS, being a CNA was a lot harder than being a SAHM. There are days though that I do hide under my bed. Seriously.
