You know what really grinds my gears: SAHMs with nannies

Posted by   + Show Post

What is up with that?


I see it with my own eyes. Recently, I met woman at the supermarket with 2 little ones and I was having a friendly conversation with her. I asked "Oh, are these you kids" and she responed "No I am just their nanny. Their mom is sleeping." One of the little ones said "she is always shopping and sleeping. Miss Ellen always take care of us." In my mind I was just like "Really?!" but  I didn't comment on it. We finished our convo and split. I don't know the situation so I can't really judge the mom, but I have seen this many times before. It really pisses me off. The husband takes care of you and the kids. At least make the effort of being with your kids.


If you are a SAHM that takes care of their own kids, keep up the good work.

I guess I just don't see why it matters what OTHER people do in THEIR households :/

I would love a nanny,I have three kids and am usually exhausted and could use a nap lol...however to have one full time is ridiculous.I think I have done a good job managing my home and my kids,however the ocassional break would rock lol.

That mother might work nights or be seriously ill. You don't know the situation from such a short conversation and have no right to judge.

That nanny needs to be fired for talking crap about her boss.

It is no worse than people who work or go to school part time and have their kids in daycare full time.  

I don't get it,  but try not to judge.  Some have good reasons, others may not...but it is their kids who will ultimately judge them on their parenting,  not I.

People are lazy and/or had more kids than they can handle. Unless your sick, disabled, or grieving there is no excuse to be home and have a nanny. IMO
