- Do you work?
- What exactly do you do all day?
- I thought that you could take care of this because you don't have a job.
- I wish that I didn't have a job and could stay home all day.
- I'm really looking forward to my paid vacation.
I've had it several ways. I've been a full time SAHM, a part time employee/full time mom and a full time employee/full time mom. I definitely prefer full time SAHM to the other options.
Mothering and wifing is hard work. It is also the most fulfilling work that I have ever done. I respect mothers who can keep a job and still run their house, because I CAN'T. I have tried. My husband tried to pitch in and take on more of the housework, but I just don't see how all those working moms do it. Of course, I have a lot of flexibility in my schedule and, as my husband has pointed out, I can take a nap at my job if I want. That's pretty awesome. But my job is hard work.
Excuse me. Spongebob is on and the television is calling my name.
