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 believe a nanny that is there to help the mother while she is doing the household duties and raising her children is called a mother's helper. There is a place for one, but not if the mother is truly lazy.

If she can afford it then why can't a SAHM have a break every once in a while.

It doesn't bother me, i have friends who are sahms and have nannies. I'm also a Sahm but no nanny for me, i can manage my two sons and do my daily activities, i chose to be a stay at home mom because i wanted to be there for them and take care to the fullest of my babies.
If they want nannies ok good for them, it just doesn't affect me cause....well i could care less i have my life.
