Yea I am a SAHM..So what?!?

So I am going to do a little ranting on here.I am so tired of people degrading what I do.Yes I am a SAHM so what? I just don't understand how some people don't see that as a job? No I don't get a paycheck that consists of money but I do get the satisfaction of watching my daughter grow up & learn.That is my paycheck.Knowing that I have no one but myself to give credit too.Me being a stay at home mom is no ones business but mine & my husbands.Dont get mad or say stupid comments bc we are able to afford it & you are not.Thats not my problem.I am a very grounded person & I am so blessed that I am able to stay home with my daughter.That is a luxury that some people cannot afford but I have gotten to the point where I am tired of the comments & stupidity of some people.I do not get a break from my "job".It is a 24/7 never ending circus that I love doing.Ugh I am just so disgusted right now that it is unbelievable.These people just need to get a life & stop worrying about mine!

I definitely feel your pain. People act like I do nothing all day. Granted I spend a good majority of my time searching the internet or shopping at Target. But I still have to get dinner made every night, the house stays somewhat livable, my kids all get to school & then back home. Plus whatever activities they're in.
I think the people who demean what we do are the ones that are jealous. Being a wife and mother are just as demanding & rewarding as any job you could have outside the house.
Our jobs as women are hard enough without trying to tear each other down. We should learn how to be a support system for each other & not constantly degrading what someone else is doing.

But what is so crazy about it is that my FIL is one of the people saying all the crap! Im not OCD so my house is not perfectly ship-shape all the time but like you said it is livable.I just dont think that i should feel bad for being a SAHM but I am starting to feel that way.
