My confession about SAHM's

I personally feel like SAHM's have it easy being home, I would love to stay home and be able to just focus on cleaning, cooking and watching my children. Instead Im a working mom and have to clean, cook, watch my kids and work away from home for 40 hours a week. Yes I know its life and not everyone is as lucky, but you ladies should never take advantage of it!

Well, every job (including sahm) has its downfalls and frustrations! EVERY job has ups and downs and though I do feel lucky to be here day after day taking care of the ones I love, but I dont always LOVE this job! Sometimes, I do envy those who can get away from the day to day of the home.

 Ah, yes, the-grass-is-always-greener syndrome. Unless you're doing something crazy, like working at night and staying at home with your non-school age kids all day, and have no partner to help you with the child rearing or house cleaning, SAHMs and working moms are equal, imo. They each have their challenges and rewards, different, but one is not better or easier than the other.

To me being.a sahm is more difficult.than when I was a working mom.
But it is worth it.

I have been a working mom, I have been home for 3 1/2 years now and I think it's much easier and more enjoyable as well. I don't, however, live anyone elses reality and can't say it's the same for them.
