I dont know why I feel bad asking for money. I have been a stay at home mom for a bit over a year now. I sell Avon and make some money, but its not much. Usually covers gas and an ocasional meal out or fun out of the house activity to do with my girls. There are times Avon sends me checks for recruiting girls and those check I can feel proud of and use them to pay off a bill. Well I havent had many recruits lately so those checks arent coming in and the money I do make goes straight to gas and to my gym membership now.
I just never ask husband for money unless I need something for the girls. I find now that I need underclothes and some pants. All my closet consists of is mostly maternity clothes. I was pregnant for a total of two years. haha. Now everything is loose on me and wearing these clothes makes me feel sloppy, big, and still pregnant looking.
I know I need to ask husband for money to buy new clothes, but I just feel so guilty asking for it. I know he wont be upset about it and he will probably just ask me how much I need and hand it right over to me.
I just cant help but feel guilty taking it. I feel like im splurging on myself with money that we can use for bills or on our girls. I feel like he worked so hard for this money that Im selfishly using on myself.
Anyone know they can right out ask for money from SO, BF, HB? But still feel wrong taking it?
