Ya bitch I work......


It might not go into an office job 9-5 kind of job yes I am a stay at home and no matter how may times people like to think we sit home and eat f*ckin bon bons and scratch our asses all day what we do is work because it never stops and I can never punch out and leave my shit at the office. I am tired of some working moms{and yes I know it is hard to be a working mom} thinking that we home bound mothers do nothing all day because we are "at home all day". Today I almost lost it when an annoying ass mother I didn't even know decided to give me her 2 cents at a random store that I can no longer remember because she irritated me so much. WHo the f*ck do you think you are lady? OK so your a working mom I get it - it's hard but can we get off OMG I am so much better than you mentality because I go to an office everyday and do the mommy thing.  It's not what she said that bothered me but how she said it. Oh yeah it went something like this  - "Of course you would have time to bake your a SAHM".  With this smug little attitude that you can only find in the area I live in this great city of mine.

We both work hard, we don't get a break it is a 24/7 sometimes thankless job and sometimes it sucks.  But it does not make me angry that some mothers think that just because we are at home we hang out all day  work out and drink wine during play dates.  Some people like to think it is easier to be home then going  to work and I have done both of the spectrum and let me tell you either way it is tough. I went through a big should I or should I not go back to work after GG was born. Keep in mind I was a worker bee had worked since the age of 14 and I loved it. After much con and pro I decided that since I was not going to have more than one child and the cost of daycare/nanny would not be worth my time/stress of work I decided to stay at home. Now let's keep in mind that when I had GG I was 40 so I had worked that whole time I had savings and a husband who takes care of me and GG in an awesome beautiful way...I am fortunate and count my blessings everyday. Excuse the babble maybe I was suffering from Halloween craziness but it bothered the shit out of me.

Instead of us mothers uniting together we tear each other apart and have turned it into a bad Godzilla movie mother vs. mother.

AUUUUUUGGGHHHHH

There I now feel better....Wusa

I hear it all the time being a stay at home mom too. From strangers to my own dad, sister, and in laws. Its insane the amount of judgment and lack of understanding of how flippin' hard it is. Screw them... we're doing what we want to do - and personally I think it's jealousy anyway.

People make choices, others need to live with theirs and leave us sahm's be.
It is not easy, and before I get into a debate on this topic I will shut up lol
Let it be known though that we raise, entertain and take care of kids AND clean house AND run errands all day long 7 days a week!!!

I hear that too all the time. I barely get a chance to sit at the computer and pay bills or even blog {hello I am so far behind on all my peeps here} Some people ont get it at all. I never EVER get a break and when I do I out running errands like a chicken with my head cut off, going a 100 MPH. And I do everything around the house...except the yard work. I won't go on and on about it but year we are not just sitting on our ASSES all day doing nothing....some people are just idiots!!!

I cannot stand holier than thou people, especially other moms. This is what I hear a lot since I'm a SAHM and home school my daughter: "It must be nice to be able to make that choice. I don't have that luxury". I love the time with my daughter. I love how close we are, but luxury? No dolls, luxury is that new car you're driving, your Iphone, Ipad, and whatever other freakin' electronic you can't leave home without, your cleaning lady, your nanny, and oh did I mention fuck off? What usually comes out of my mouth? "It is nice for my daughter to have a mom who cares enough to take care of her personally". Not that I think that people who work don't care about their kid, but if they are tacky enough to act snooty, they can suck it. Glad you didn't end up in jail after those comments from the bitch. :)

Feeling the love......
