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.

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.

I was a SAHM...why does one need a nanny?

He chooses to work that much.

Quoting Anonymous 35: 85 hours a week? How is that fair to your husband?

Quoting AnnabellesMom:I'm a stay @ home mom of 3, pregnant with #4, trying to finish my degree, AND I "work" some. My husband works 85 hrs p/ week. We hired a nanny for the summer so I could focus on my school work while the big kids were out for summer break... She did all kinds of really fun stuff with them that they would not have gotten to do if she hadn't been here. She's been coming over on the weekends to help out before the baby gets here in 4 wks. I am so, so thankful for her & the life that we are able to lead. I think you need to find something to be thankful for ;)
