Why the attitude of self righteousness over not having a life outside your home?
To the moms who have pretty much given up on everything outside their house and kids....if that's what makes you happy, good for you. Everyone should do what makes them happy. But why be so self righteous about it? It's not everyone here, but there are some who have this attitude of, "I keep my kids up under me 24/7, never go out on date with dh, never do anything without my kids, ever, and that's what makes me a great mom." It's as if giving up on everything outside of home makes you better than other moms. Why? So moms who go out to hear music, or on dates with their dh, or girls' vacations aren't as good parents as you? What makes a mother who has given up all aspects of life outside her kids better than the mom who re-energizes and still enjoys other aspects of life? CM is the only place I see this. All my friends IRL are great, loving moms and have very active social lives as well.
