I hope this board doesn't turn into a SAHM vs. working moms debate. Some people like to stay home and raise kids, some women like to throw a career in there too.. To each her own!

I hated being a SAHM.

I posted a while ago about my friend who has a 4, almost 5 year old son who is not potty trained yet. She also still calls him a baby and pushes him in a stroller absolutely everywhere she goes. I dunno, maybe it's because I had two younger siblings when I was 5 that needed the stroller more, but I believe my parents made me walk most of the time when I was about 2 or 3. Strollers were only for when we were somewhere that we had to do a ton of walking.

I read an article about a woman who was a SAHM and got divorced. But she worked it out that her husband still had to pay her enough to keep being a SAHM, the courts ruled in her favor. I think some women have that as their backup plan.

In response to a confession. I get that a lot of people think I'm crazy. Like, I left a $125k a year job to wipe butts and deal with temper tantrums. I wasn't bad at my job, and truthfully I wasn't miserable. Friends of mine who were womens studies majors in college are particularly horrified by me. They see it as a huge step back for women. I volunteer at an alternative high school for teen moms working with STEM research. It's fulfilling work. My sister thinks I'm crazy, because my nephews drive her crazy after a few days. I guess its to each her own. The depending on my husband for money element doesn't scare me. We own our house and cars outright. The kiddos have a decent college fund. I come from a pretty privileged background, and have money of my own set aside. I know that's not the case for most people though, so I really appreciate that I'm able to do what makes me happy.

In response to a confession. I like this confession. It really coherently outlines a different point of view, a perspective I respect but find hard to understand. I really learned something from it.

In response to a confession. I can't tell if this is worse than what my grandma always said to me: "Good thing you're smart and can go to college and get a good job. You're definitely not pretty enough to get a man to marry you and support you so you can stay at home with the kids". Ouch.
