I have never had the opportunity to be a stay at home mom... which I am sure is also a lot of work.
But sometimes, I really get bothered by people I know who are stay at home moms who complain about not being able to manage their children's daily routines, cook and clean etc. Once mom I know complains she doesnt have the time to tutor her child on their homework... I don't get it!
I mean personally, I wish I had a chance to do all that for my family. But we need to be a 2 income household, so I am working. My daily routine consists of waking up at the crack of dawn, dropping kids off to school, commuting 1 1/2 hr to work, working til 5PM , driving another 1-2 hrs back home (traffic), cooking dinner, checking on kids and homework, getting things together in the house...
I'm sure many working moms have a similar routine, so I dont get it and I'm sorry but I cannot even get a slight bit sympathetic when my friends or sister in laws that stay at home complain so much that they don't have enough time in the day... ??? What?!
