  • This is not meant to be the average SAHM bitching debate. I have a serious question for them:

    How can you call your RESPONSIBILITIES your "JOB"?

    I work 40 hours a week.
    PLUS: take care of my 2 kids, DH, & a dog
    PLUS: clean my house
    PLUS: wash & put away laundry
    PLUS: manage bills
    PLUS: cook meals
    PLUS: spend QT time with my family.

    I take care of all of my responsibilities and my career in 1/2 of the time you do.

    How can you call taking care of your responsibilities (kids, house, chores, pets, etc) a job when you would have them even if you did work?

    Trust me -- being a working mom is not a break or easier than anything you have 18 hours a day to accomplish.

    No, I'm not bitter that I work & take care of my family. But, I do not think you should get any special recognition for doing what I do in 5 hours a night vs your 16 hours/day.
