I'm so tired of people hinting to me that I need to go back to work. This is something that my husband and I have agreed on. It shouldn't matter to anyone if this is what we choose. If I wasn't bringing in any income to help contribute then I would be working but I am fortunate enough to be able to help pay the bills. This is a touchy subject for me because many people think I sit on my behind all day and do nothing which is far from the truth.. if you're a SAHM too, then you must understand my frustrations on this topic unless nobody ever criticizes you.

I can't seem to find any quotes about this..

I want to show people that I am happy being who I am. I know that I shouldn't care what others think but it really drives me nuts.

Thanks for your help!

My motto is: A career is your heart song it is what you would do even if you didn't get monetary pay for it. So I choose to be a SAHM, A trade is what puts food on the table, clothes on your back and a roof over your head. I used to tell people My husband and I have a great arrangement his trade is to make 100% of the money, and my career is to spend 100% of it...on our home and our (3)children. Usually they laughed and walked away.
- I gave them a laugh
- It gave them something to think about.
- I showed my kids how to handle criticism/conflict and everyone walks away with a smile on their face.
-Everybody wins.

Really!! Why does it bother you that people have an issue with it. If it's something that you and your husband have agreed on then be proud that you are able to stay at home. I'm a stay at home mom and there are times when I hear comments about it, but believe me, it's jealousy. They only wish they could stay home with their kids and not have to worry about bills. When someone makes a comment about it again, simply say, "yes, you are right, we are so blessed to be able to make it on one income. I am so glad I can be home with my kids", and keep moving.

"A man came home from work and found his 3 children outside, still in their pajamas, playing in the mud, with empty food boxes and wrappers strewn around garden, The door of his wife's car was open, as was the front door to the house and no sign of the dog, walking in the door, he found ...an even bigger mess. A lamp had been knocked over, the throw rug was against one wall, In the front room the TV was on loudly with the cartoon channel, the family room was strewn with toys and various items of clothing. In the kitchen, dishes filled the sink, breakfast food was spilled on the counter, the fridge door was open wide, dog food was spilled on the floor, a broken glass lay under the table, and a small pile of sand was spread by the back door. He quickly headed up the stairs, stepping over toys and more piles of clothes, looking for his wife. He was worried she might be ill, or that something serious had happened. He was met with a small trickle of water as it made its way out the bathroom door. As he peered inside he found wet towels, scummy soap and more toys strewn over the floor. Miles of toilet paper lay in a heap and toothpaste had been smeared over the mirror and walls. As he rushed to the bedroom, he found his wife still curled up in the bed in her pajamas, reading a novel... She looked up at him, smiled and asked how his day went. He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?' She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?...
''Yes," was his incredulous reply..
She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'"

The only people who think SAHM don't work are people who have never been a SAHM. They shouldn't speak on topics they have no knowledge of. SAHM is the hardest job there is.

Here's a quote I love from Henry Winkler, "The hardest thing in the world is to parent correctly. The second hardest thing is to make it in show business. The third hardest thing is to climb Mt. Everest naked."

Being a SAHM is the hardest job I have ever had, and I've been an RN and NP for years, which as you can imagine, are difficult jobs. No job has been as difficult and as fulfilling as being a SAHM. What do I do all day? What working parents pay daycare workers to do, but I do it better. I'm my children's mom. I take care of them. I discipline them and teach and train them how to be decent human beings. I do it, not a daycare worker. I work hard every day all day, and I go to bed exhausted every night between running a household, including managing the finances, the shopping, meal planning, cooking, cleaning, etc. It's really hard work, and frankly, sometimes when I'm particularly discouraged or exhausted, I think to myself that it would a lot easier if I just went back to work and my kids went to daycare. But I know that my job as a SAHM is the most important job that I will ever have in my life. Raising wonderful people who will change the world, yep, that's my job!

I have really enjoyed reading all of your comments! I have been mostly a SAHM for 18 years now. Lately it seems like I hear more and more people asking me things like, "What do you do all day?" and "Why don't you get a job." I have to admit, I started to let these comments get to me. It never bothered me when both of my boys were younger, but now my youngest is in the fifth grade and people are starting to judge me for staying home. I talked to my husband about this and how I was feeling bad about myself because of what others have been saying, and we both came to the conclusion that we love that I can be here for my kids at any time. All of these people are acting like because my child is in the fifth grade that he is practically grown or something, but I believe these next 6 years or so will be a very vulnerable time in his life and we both agree that having one parent available at all times really makes a difference in how children turn out.

I usually tell people, I do a very important job inside the home. I am a domestic engineer. A very detailed, time consuming, highly skilled job. I am also a nurse, cook, maid, master scheduler( not sure this is a word, but oh well) so I really don't need another job.

I hear that stuff from my inlaws about twice a year mainly because the kids are all in school now and they think i need to work. My hubby jumps right in and tells them that she does work she takes care of 3 kids every day and most days puts in more hours than he does because i do it all! Most people just dont get it and i too get agrivated when i say stay at home mom and i get the oh shes lazy look. Its true most people...including a lot of women feel that they have to work to prove themselves. I dont i do all my own home repairs( hubby works a LOT of hours) so i cant wait on him to do them i renodeled my house and put my own lamenate floors down in about 12 hours too. Its hars not to getupset but your not alone :)

Tell them your children will most likely be more successful in life because you HAVE THE TIME to spend with them and really know everything going on in their lives. I do not know of any quotes but I sure get snarky comments all the time about it. I apologize if my awesome life is making them angry :) Not! lol

me too! i worked for 22 years of my life! and worked hard! i went back to work 8 weeks after my daughter was born. i moved and noone knows that mom...just the sahm. i get asked what do you do all day by a friend in front of people all day. i told her you get your kids up, get them ready, make their bfast and lunch, get them out the door, do their hw, take them to their activities, bathed... my other friend who works...said i do all of that. to which i had no remark. but they still do not do the all day nurturing and dealing that we do. i wouldn't have it any other way. but how would they like me saying....how do you go to work all day, put your kid in before and after school program so you can work out before work, only spend 3 hours tops with them before bed? how are you never involved in class mom. how are you letting someone else raise your kid? i have worked full time, part time, and sahm...none are easy. why do people judge? you have to be happy with yourself and your choices i guess.

You already said it. It shouldn't matter to anyone!! You and your husband agreed to do it, and apparently you DO bring in income as well!! I am a SAHM of 5. Have been for 7 years and LOVE it. My hubby and I sat down and decided we could make it work and it was MORE important for one of us to be home to raise our kids/the next generation of humans. And if someone doesn't think that job is important, they obviously are a) jealous b)stupid or c)not important enough to care about their opinion anyway! Enjoy your beautiful job of staying home. Don't worry about what people say and YES, you do have a job. 24/7 no holidays, no bathroom breaks, no snack breaks on call everyday, all day.

I love your post. My sister-in-law often makes comments about what a supermom she is, as she works and has two kids and would never read a parenting magazine, as she doesn't need anyone telling her how to parent. Yesterday she said 50 shades of gray was written for soccer moms. Jealous much? I just grit my teeth and smile.

Like where you send your kids to school, what you feed them, how you discipline them, choosing to stay home is a very person choice that doesn't need to be justified to anyone else. I have run in to it a lot recently since we decided, actively, to pursue Catholic school for our son. Life isn't about income/money and if it was, there would be no stay-at-home-parents (mom or dad). No, being a SAHM isn't easy - maybe just remind people of the daily household tasks they perform every day, then tell them to add constant childcare to it - or tell them to imagine what it was like those first couple months when they were still on maternity leave and were caring for the baby 24/7. That should shut them up, at least for a while.

There was a short story I got to read on a site unfortunately I never wrote down the author but here is the story that I shared with my daughters and a few others enjoy~

It all began to make sense, the blank stares, the lack of response, the way one of the kids will walk into the room while I'm on the phone and ask to be taken to the store. Inside I'm thinking, 'Can't you see I'm on the phone?'
Obviously not; no one can see if I'm on the phone, or cooking, or sweeping the floor, or even standing on my head in the corner,because no one can see me at all. I'm invisible. The invisible Mom. Some days I am only a pair of hands,nothing more! Can you fix this? Can you tie this? Can you open this?? Some days I'm not a pair of hands; I'm not even a human being. I'm a clock to ask, 'What time is it?' I'm a satellite guide to answer, 'What number is the Disney Channel?' I'm a car to order,'Right around 5:30, please.'
I was certain that these were the hands that once held books and the eyes that studied history and the mind that graduated summa cum laude -but now, they had disappeared into the peanut butter,never to be seen again.She's going, she's going, she's gone!?
One night, a group of us were having dinner, celebrating the return of a friend from England. Janice had just gotten back from a fabulous trip, and she was going on and on about the hotel she stayed in. I was sitting there, looking around at the others all put together so well. It was hard not to compare and feel sorry for myself.
I was feeling pretty pathetic, when Janice turned to me with a beautifully wrapped package, and said,'I brought you this.' It was a book on the great cathedrals of Europe . I wasn't exactly sure why she'd given it to me until I read her inscription:
'To Charlotte , with admiration for the greatness of what you are building when no one sees.'
In the days ahead I would read - no, devour - the book. And I would discover what would become for me,four life-changing truths, after which I could pattern my work: No one can say who built the great cathedrals - we have no record of their names.
These builders gave their whole lives for a work they would never see finished. They made great sacrifices and expected no credit.
The passion of their building was fueled by their faith that the eyes of God saw everything.
A legendary story in the book told of a rich man who came to visit the cathedral while it was being built, and he saw a workman carving a tiny bird on the inside of a beam. He was puzzled and asked the man, Why are you spending so much time carving that bird into a beam that will be covered by the roof, No one will ever see it. And the workman replied, 'Because God sees.'I closed the book, feeling the missing piece fall into place. It was almost as if I heard God whispering to me,'I see you, Charlotte. I see the sacrifices you make every day, even when no one around you does.
No act of kindness you've done, no sequin you've sewn on, no cupcake you've baked, is too small for me to notice and smile over.
You are building a great cathedral, but you can't see right now what it will become.
At times, my invisibility feels like an affliction.But it is not a disease that is erasing my life.
It is the cure for the disease of my own self-centeredness. It is the antidote to my strong, stubborn pride.
I keep the right perspective when I see myself as a great builder. As one of the people who show up at a job that they will never see finished,to work on something that their name will never be on. The writer of the book went so far as to say that no cathedrals could ever be built in our lifetime because there are so few people willing to sacrifice to that degree.
When I really think about it, I don't want my son to tell the friend he's bringing home from college for Thanksgiving,'My Mom gets up at 4 in the morning and bakes homemade pies, and then she hand bastes a turkey for 3 hours and presses all the linens for the table.' That would mean I'd built a shrine or a monument to myself. I just want him to want to come home. And then,if there is anything more to say to his friend, to add, 'You're going to love it there.'
As mothers, we are building great cathedrals. We cannot be seen if we're doing it right.
And one day, it is very possible that the world will marvel, not only at what we have built,
but at the beauty that has been added to the world by the sacrifices of invisible women.
Great Job, MOM!

I certainly don't feel sorry for mums who want to work, if they're happy with their child-care solution. I just hear from alot of working mums who are not happy with their child-care solutions and would rather not have to work.

But if a person is truly at peace with their life, then great. I guess I have a habit of looking at other people's choices from my own value-set. My mum raised me, and I'm raising my daughter. I'm just grateful that I have that choice. If I told my husband that I got a new job, and our 3 year old was going into care that I was happy with, he'd say Great, Good on you.

sometimes it's not a choice to work..I mean it's not really pleasant for a mom to leave her newborn to go out work.In fact there are some situations where she has no choice.When you have a baby the mom n dad have to do sacrifices to provide all th needs to the baby.And working is not sin,it's just earning to do things for the baby.working mums are mums too!!my mom HAD to leave my brother 3 months old to go work in a cold place as a poultry just because my dad's job was going down,they had loan to pay and buy formula which was really expensive.So,that was not a choice either!!!!YES,I know it i s a pain working mom ask you questions.....first see how OLD her kids are!!it is not a sin a sin for both !!u stay with ur kids is a very good thing.....and you work for your kid's basic things is more important.It's like different people with different situations!!So, candice just asked an idea what tro tell them when they ask her questions which really annoys her!!!you should not take anything personal and help her out!!!! :)

"oh, we can live comfortably on just my husband's wage" says it all really.

It's not a very big wage, but we just live within our means. I feel a bit sorry for mums who have to work outside the home. Especially single mums with no choice in the matter.

I feel really blessed/lucky to be in my situation as I know in my circle of friends, it's a rare one and I know that my friends are envious, if anything, and certainly not judgemental at all.

Sarah, if you've ever worked as a till worker or at a computer all day (as my mom does) I believe that you would have a bit more respect for working moms. It's pretty rude to berate another woman for her choice when you don't want them doing that to you.

I'd just say I'm planning on going back to a job with money and a health care/ dental care plan as soon as all my laundry gets caught up. My laundry should get caught up around the same time as my approval for my permanent resident visa.

voicemail- not available at the moment..I am busy cleaning and doing the stay at home mommy thing..please leave a message..Thanks and have a great day!!

"you know you're a stay at home mom when grocery shopping is the highlight of your week!"

"I may not have a brand new car, a nice hosue, or fancy clothes, but I have lots of memmories with my children that will last a lifetime"

"I'm a stay at home mom so I am busy 24/7 what's your excuse for being tired and bitchy?" (that will shut up a working mom too if their job is working at a cash register or a computer.

"my husband can't afford a nanny, housekeeper, cook, or a h**ker so I'm a stay at home mom"
or
I can't sit at a computer or stand at a cash register all day so I better get to....(whatever you have to do that day!)

Here's a good music to listen to when people say "So you're just a stay at home mom?". Those people don't know what they're talking about. We the SAHM's are raising happy kids and the future of our nation. Download the songs to your Ipad or Ipod touch from the album Music 4 Mommies Vol. I and Vol II by Sue Fabisch. You'll be glad that you're a SAHM. Hope this helps. :)

I am busy raising children who don't make asshole statements like you just did.
Idk if that's too blunt for you, but we deal with this too. We own two houses outright, just bought a mortgage for another and own one of our two cars. But we hear comments about beig on welfare, sitting around doing nothing etc. I get on my Internet less now than I did when I worked. And I have less down time. But some people honestly have no idea.
Maybe "I stay at home I'm lazy, I go to work I'm neglectful.. Why don't you tell me exactly what I do and how it's wrong."

my quote: "I didn't give birth to give someone else a job." it stands to reason if I go back to public work, then someone has to care for my child for me. I know some people have no choice but to get out and earn a paycheck. they have my respect. I'm grateful I have a choice. for me, it really isn't quality versus quantity. children need the whole parent, not just the fun part. I think the biggest difference between me and many income earning mom's is that I respect them, but they don't usually respect me. therefore I've stopped being nice about it. if someone hints that I need to go to work, I just tell them I do work. and when they start paying my bills, then they can start telling me what to do. till then, they need to butt out. I told a woman once that perhaps I should go back to work. staying home and raising my kids did not allow me enough time to meddle in other people's lives. she hasn't spoken to me since. the peace has been nice.

Its funny as you read what others have said .... almost all of them say I am lucky (in some way) to be a SAHM. I have never heard a mom that worked outside the home refer to herself as lucky to go to work.

[deleted account]

I am about to start reading the book "All women work" or should it be "All mom's work". We often ridicule what we don't understand (true for politics, religion, cultures). I don't know that we will ever change all the misconceptions out there. Work on educating and changing the perceptions of people you love and care about, it's important that they understand you. Grow your support network of people that understand where you are coming from - so you don't feel like you are going crazy!

Domestic Engineer. I like that one. There's so much negativity towards stay at home moms, I begin to believe sometimes. I'm also beginning to believe what John Taylor Gatto said in his book- i cant remember if it was "Dumbing Us Down" or "Weapons of Mass Instruction" but this country doesn't want stay-at-home moms. However, It is THE most important job. Be strong.

I am a stay at home mom with a college degree in science and one year of grad school. My oldest son was born the summer after I started my Master's degree. I worked through school and had worked since the age of 16. Since I have done both, work, and not work outside the home, here is what I tell people when they ask me if I am going to "use my degree": when I want a BREAK I will get a job to earn money. My reward right now has been not missing a minute of my sons' childhood or their first milestones. I have seen their first steps, heard their first words, dried their tears, and held their hands, and been home for them when they get out of school. I have not missed a single school event or sporting practice, game, or tournament. My sons are learning invaluable lessons in community service by my volunteer work at their schools "using my degree" in geology to teach kids about our amazing planet and participating on PTO boards, one year as President, and by volunteering in the community at large as well, when I can. At today's Kindergarten Mother's Day Tea, my youngest son had completed the sentence "Thank you Mom for....." by saying "Thank you Mom for...doing everything!" Being a stay at home mom is the hardest, but definitely, the most rewarding "job" I have ever had. Plenty of time for a career when my kids are older, if I choose. Right now, what gifts I am receiving from my children for being with them, and there for them, are priceless.

I am a SAHM of a 3 yo and an 18 yo, I am know crazy right? however, I tried
to go back to work after my son was born. I saw a baby the same age,
broke down in tears, quit my job and have been home ever since.
People are always asking me if it drivers me crazy to be a SAHM,
I ALWAYS respond with, "no, it's the most important job in the world, I
may not have a corner office, or a 6 figure salary but I get to wake
up to a hug and kiss, with an I love you... and I will take that over
any 6 figures its more rewarding. " don't let anyone make you feel
bad you are doing a wonderful thing :-D

I am a stay at home mom of two amazing kids. I haven't worked outside of the house in over 12 years. When we decided to have kids I was lucky enough to be able to stay home and raise them and not have a nanny do it for me. Be proud that you are home raising your own kids because you have the most rewarding job in the world. Most if the mom's that have to work are probably jealous that you can be with you kids and be there for every special moment.

C.S. Lewis said it best "The homemaker has the ultimate career. All other careers exist for one purpose only - and that is to support the ultimate career. " I have been a SAHM for 13 years and I still love it. Whenever anyone asks me when I will be going back to work my response is always, "I am at work." I don't know anyone who would quit a job they love to go get a job they are ambivalent about.

This was on the radio here today. Each year, Salary.com does a "what is mom worth" evaluation for mothers day, to give a theoretical income amount for mom. This year, they figure the average stay at home mom works over 94 hours a week in various capacities, and the average salary is over $112,000. To bad we don't actually get paid that! http://www.salary.com/stay%2Dat%2Dhome%2...

I am self employed SAHM. I make more than most doctors, but income is not my point. You are doing a wonderful job and in this economy you are blessed to have an income, and have time to see you kids. I would tell all those jokers out there where to shove it! Because you not only work, but you take care of the kids. This means you work twice as hard per each child (one child is a 40+ an hr job per a week). So maybe those jokers need a reality check!

This sounds morbid, but tell them all the people your husband would have to hire to REPLACE you ..... Nanny, cook, maid, etc.in that vein it is very important that we mothers have life insurance because our husbands would have to pay for at least some of the things we do. I have read a want ad for mothers and it talks about being available 24/7, not getting sick or vacation time, etc.

There is a guy my husband is good friends with who kept saying he heard about this job and that job. After trying many times to explain that I was not going back to work because daycare cost more than I would make I finally told him that if those jobs were so great maybe he should apply and NOT to list me as a reference, I love my "job" and was not going to do anything else until our girls were all in school. He never bother me about it again.
