What does a stay at home mom really want?

As a stay at home mom, what do you really want? For yourself and for your family? I want to have at least one whole day every week for myself and for myself only doing the things I love to do or just to relax, unwind and enjoy the peace and quiet. I want to have my own source of income so I can buy my kids anything they want and to have extra money to invest. I want my husband to not be cheap and date me even just once in a while (but no one change anyone especially their husbands and I have come close to accepting that).

I'm single wahm because I have a child with autism. I don't get to date or have me time right now. But I'm hoping to raise productive capable kids and when I do get me time I can meditate on how well they are doing, and feel pride.

When I was a sahm I wanted to use the bathroom in peace and to go to the grocery store alone.

I'm pretty happy with my life. I have the days to myself, my kids are here at night. We spend weekends as a family, with an occasional date for me and DH. I may complain a lot over small things but when I really think about it, I have it pretty good.

I'm a SAHM and the only thing I don't really get is downtime...I homeschool so I'm with my girls pretty much all the time except for when they are in Karate. I'm there as required by the Dojo, but I walk during classes..

For other people to realize that a sahm is just as important as a mom who works outside the house.

For people to realize just because the kids are in school does not mean they no longer need us.

Other than that I have it made. My husband appreciates all I do for our family.
