What is with the, "My husband makes great money..." thing? Am I supposed to be rich to be a SAHM? Serious question, is that what people assume? Because.....

I can only say that I am grateful that I have the work experience and professionalism required to make considerably more than my preschool bill every week :lol:

No joke.



I could have had a successful career, no doubt. It just wasn't the path I decided to take.

You kidding? When I don't have class, my kids still go to daycare. I love daycare. It allows me to sit at home and pretend to be child-less while other people deal with my little demons.



My older kids were out on winter break last week but daycare was still open for my non-school age kids so guess where they went? Oh yeah.

We are not rich by any means. I don't assume every family with a SAHM is rich. It's just what works for them. I could have made a career for myself, but DH and I decided to hold off on it until our kids were in school.

The transverse applies too, that the obvious conclusion of that statement must be "you work because your husband doesn't make enough for you to stay at home".



Not true here, nor for a lot of ladies. When women say that, they clearly are oblivious that that statement is so rude.

I've never thought about that, or like that when a mom said she worked. That is really rude, you're right!

Yeah, a mom at my daughter's dance class was talking about the schedule with me a few weeks ago, and I mentioned that I don't know how we could make a 5pm class work with both of us working... then she said that
"Well, I'm lucky enough to not have to work, my husband makes enough to support us"




I wanted to say, well, lady, so does mine, but I'm not cut out to be a sahm. I like working, and am too scatter brained to be focused as one.



Instead I still came across as an a*****e. I said, I could never be a sahm, and that I loved working. Oh well.
It probably seemed snarky as well.
I was a sahm for 15 months and I was not happy, I enjoyed my baby's company, but couldn't reconcile with my overly adventurous existential personality traits, haha.

:shock: I don't blame you for being snarky. How rude!
