I always see post about how working moms are jealous of sahm or vice versa. Personally, I hate staying home yeah I love my kids and like being home with them most of the time. I have 4 kids ages 8,8,6,4, they annoy me all of the time with all the arguing and crying especially the girls. I can't see how anyone would be jealous of me, I been a sahm for what now seems like forever and finally I see the light at the end of the tunnel. The youngest will be going to school full time, and finally so will I. I will be going to school for something I have dreamed of since I was 6, and I can't wait to have my life apart from my family. I don't judge people who like staying home, but I also don't judge the hard working mommas that for whatever reason need to work or like to. I feel like I have no life aside from these kids and dh, and makes me feel ashamed that I don't want to be home anymore with the kids. But, whatever life has to go on one day they will grow up and leave.
WOW! I didn't think this post would blow up like this! I been busy all morning getting kids ready for school, so I did not have time to reply. To the moms saying that it sounds like I do not want to be a mother, trust me I love my children and love being their mother I just do not like being a sahm. I enjoyed it for awhile, now I just don't. I clean all day, I sometimes go out with friends when they are all in school but since the youngest only goes 3 hours I usually have to wait for her to be out to actually go out. Summer we go out to museums, the zoo and different outings. I think it has to do a lot with my personal growth and happiness, I do not think a woman should just be a mother but a woman too. Her own person so to speak, at least that's what I think about myself. Now for the other mothers saying your kids don't bicker or argue, I really do not believe that. I have 4 so its constant arguing over who gets to sit where or who gets the last cookie, I don't let them just argue of coarse I step in. Last to the woman saying, my dream is just a dream I will make sure its not just that and its sad that you think that way.
To all the other replies thanks for all your kind words, they make me feel a lot better. Also, I am going to school for a degree in Veterinary technology, might not be a big deal to most be it is to me.
