Any of you who are a stay-at-home mom know just how hard it is. I’m not saying being a working mother isn’t hard too, because we all know it is, but stay-at-home moms often tend to get a bad rap.
I’ve been a stay-at-home-mom for over fourteen years now. I feel like I’ve heard all the criticisms there are. I’ve dealt with endless stupid questions about what I do all day to those who pity me because I must be so unfulfilled. The bottom line is I’m thrilled I had the choice to stay home with my kids. I also wish sometimes that I did work outside of the home because staying home is hard.
The only criticism of being a stay-at-home mom that ever bothered me was when people assumed it was a vacation. Because staying home with four kids under five definitely sounds like Club Med, right?
There will always be people who think that being a stay-at-home mom is easy. That stay-at-home moms do nothing but watch soap operas, get together with their friends during play dates and drink coffee. How wrong they are.
One stay-at-home mom got tired of her partner telling her she ‘does nothing’ all day so she decided to show him exactly what she does.
