My personal impression of sahm's (from a working mom)

I'm totally jealous. In my mind you sahm's have the hardest yet the best jobs ever. I have a deep appreciation for all sahm's and the only feeling I have that would be negative towards them would be that I'm jealous!

If I had the opportunity to be one, I would jump at it in a heartbeat! Sahm's work their butts off every single moment of every day. They don't get paid in monetary value or get sick days or vacation time. However they get to spend priceless moments with their kids that I could only dream of.

I hate the recent posts bashing sahm's & I just wanted to make a positive post about them.

Haha, not from me by any means. I work full time because financially we couldn't get by without me working. If we could though, I'd totally be a sahm. It makes me sick to see bashing posted about it

I dont think SAHM have a harder job than working mothers, but kudos to any mom.

I personally think being a working mom is harder, but it doesn't make one better than the other. I LOVE staying home and am so grateful I have the opportunity. I hated working full time.

I totally agree with you, I am sooo jealous of SAHMs! I want to homeschool my kids even, but I will still have to work too...I'm really hoping DH can get a new job making what he should be making so I can stay home. IMO, the point of having kids is to raise them and care for them, I miss them all day even though I only work when they are in school, I still don't like it.

I love being a SAHM but in the past couple of months I've missed working so I'll be trading in my SAHM badge to become a working mom lol =)

I've found that some women thrive at being working moms. It is not an easy thing to be, and I personally think I would be happier being a stahm. Its awesome that you have a choice :)
