... her job is any more difficult than being a WM, I am going to flip my lid! lol!
This is not a WM vs. SAHM post. What what I see is a lot of bickering from the SAHM side of things and it does nothing but piss WM's off!
SAHM's, you do realize that WM's have to deal with ALL of the same stuff, but we basically have half the time to squeeze it all in? Everything you do, WM's do too. We just have less time to do it. Now THAT is difficult.
If the demands of your job stress you out, then I suggest looking to the person who set those expectations for you? Could it be YOU??? More than likely, yes. So, put yourself in a WM's shoes... a woman who not only sets expectations for herself but also has expectations put upon her by her boss as well. And guess what happens if those delegated tasks aren't completed while on the clock? Some of us WM's actually bring that work home with us to complete after the kids go to bed, while we do a load of laundry, all while trying to clean up the dinner mess that's been sitting in the kitchen for 3 hours because we didn't have time to scrape and wash before we helped or kids with homework, got them bathed, read them book and put them to bed.
Volunteering? PTA? Yep! We find time for that too. Maybe we don't volunteer IN the classroom... rather we help the teacher/committee out with tasks that can be done from our home on the evenings or weekends.
We rearrange our schedules to attend IEP meetings, parent teacher conferences, school functions... because if we don't we are bound to be looked down up on by school staff and classified as parents who don't give a shit.
Breaks? Nope. We don't get those either. Because when we leave one job, we are headed to the next.
Again, I am not saying that your job isn't difficult. But when you play martyr by claiming you "do it all" and claim WM's don't understand and are "lucky" because they get a break... take a moment and give a little bit of consideration to who your audience is.
