So steamed this morning! Me and my husband before we had our son saw that it financially didn't make sense for me to go back to work because my entire check would go to daycare cost. Granted things have been tight, but we haven't been complaining because we both feel that Gabe is worth eating beans and rice for. However the In Laws see the big change in our finances over the months, can't travel as much, clothes, i.e. material possessions, and tell my husband maybe if i was working life would be better for us. Ok, one time to make the comment is one thing, but they have been harassing my husband about me finding job and how we aren't accurately planning for the future. This morning, they went to the extent to say to my husband i was being lazy and not thinking about the "well-being" of the family!...My question is should i say something or let my husband handle this? Does anyone else ever feel judged by others for making the choice to be at home with your kids? I am so taken back left field and i don't know how to explain that i don't sit at home eating chocolate all day!
