Well, what can I say. If I hear one more person tell me how lucky I am, I think I might explode!!! It was a choice!!! No different than choosing to pursue a career (which I had once)!!! I have a 12/13/14 yr old who keep me plenty busy!!!:)

ps i do feel sometimes, like people think our job is easy though! so i do know what you mean a bit, maybe you took it the wrong way or they said it in the wrong context. but whatever the scenario, know that you are doing the best job you can, and hopefully knowing you ARE lucky!

you are very lucky to be able to stay at home, some moms would love to be able to be their childs primary caregiver and cant because they are single and have to work or because they financially cant afford to stay home. i feel like most people respect stay at home moms a lot, because its our job to raise the next generation. we are lucky that we had this choice and lucky that we get to raise our kids the way we want. if you dont think you are lucky that you get to stay home, then dont do it anymore. when people say you are lucky, they are probably wishing that they had the same opportunity to do so. you are lucky that you had the choice, and you are GREATLY respected for what you do everyday...if u werent, people wouldnt be telling you how lucky you are! hope this gives you some more insight!

I feel extremely lucky to be able to stay home, but I also know what you mean about those people. I really don't think people understand how hard it is and really do think all we do is sit at home and eat chocolate and watch soap operas. :) Hang in there! You're not alone!

We are lucky... we are lucky to have the most difficult, but also the most rewarding job there is. I agree that it is a choice, but I think we chose well, and we're doing the best job out there. And do most of the people who say "you're so lucky" mean, "you're so lazy"? Maybe, but I think a lot of them really do wish they could/would do it too.
