Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

If you're a SAHM, have you ever been bashed by a working mom IRL? or vice versa?

i was tonight. Actually, laughed at. Even though we were raised with a SAHM until we went to school. 


I provide the best life for my kid that I can. She's always telling me she wished she had put her kids in the same activities I put mine in.

I work part time, 2 days a week. I've gotten crap from both sides, that I'm not a good mom because I work at all, that I'm not a good mom because I don't work full time.

Only here. I don't raise my kid, I prioritize money over her, blah blah.

I didn't even know this debate existed until CM.

In real life....never "bashed" though occasionally rude comments were made over the years.  On CM...sure, bashing. People who do anything differently than you is a favorite past time for many on CM.

Thugh I have never cared if other people have a problem with me being a SAHM.  It is what DH and I want and feel strongly about.   We never asked for other people's opinions....nor do we care what others think.

Yep, a family member and high school acquaintance, whose opinion didn't really matter.

Not bashed, but just suggestions that I shouldn't go back to work right after my kids were born. I wasn't upset, that was just what she thought was right.
