It seems like anytime we argue my SO brings it up. How I can’t spend money. Or paying the bills. Etc. it just hurts my pride so much, I used to work and did whatever I wanted with my money, Now with kids, we thought it’d be better for me to stay home and watch them so we won’t have to pay for daycare.
I’m at SAHM mom and I know I should be grateful but these last few days I’m mostly just annoyed and tired. My son is 10 months old and some nights he sleeps great others not so much. My spouse leaves home around 6am and is back around 5pm so it’s a long day. Some days I seem to have a hold on things but the days where I don’t omg it’s horrible. My son does well when we leave the house but after... More
Hi everyone! First time mom to my son born in November. I'm also a stay at home mom. I love the fact that I get the chance to stay home and watch my son reach all his milestones, but I feel like I'm slowly going crazy from lack of adult interaction! I've tried some mommy groups on Facebook and while I think I click with some moms, the feeling doesn't seem to be mutual. How do ... More
Nobody warns you about how hard the transition from working all the time and having to change over to being home all day not having any adult interaction. A part of me feels bad about this because I love my son and want to be with him all the time yet crave to have that “importance again” Any advice ?
I always get asked this question and wonder how others handle it. It completely annoys me because what I want to say back is “Do you still like going to work?” I know that staying at home (which I hate that term because we are always out) is not for everyone but I feel like people say it to me since they don’t always know what to say.
Hi! How do you respond to people when they ask you what you do all day? I'm a stay at home mom with a child who now attends preschool.
Hello! I’m looking for your experiences regarding the transition from working in the office to being a SAHM, from the beginning: notice to the boss and how that was handled, first few months at home and getting settled, issues with the family and any others that came up at home or internally with yourself, etc. I’m excited for this change, but anxious about pulling the trigger. Any advice is al... More
Says if she were a Sahm she would spend more time with my son whom is 3 with Autism etc and take him everywhere. Like whatever. Now I’m gone to NC waiting on my husband to come here next month (he has the other two kids) she ain’t doing nothing with him! Like what was that stupid? What was that? You’re gonna do what now? I’m sorry I know I’m not a perfect mom and what not but she doesn’t see ... More
I’m a SAHM with a 23 month old, and currently pregnant. I’d really like to leave my husband; I feel like he finds joy in putting me down and finding fault in everything I do; but Before our daughter was born we’d decided I’d stay home to raise her. Now I have no job, and rely on my husband for financial support. I have no family or friends that I can turn to. Does anyone have any advice? PS:... More
Hello! My husband and I have been talking about me staying home with our two boys. When we had our oldest, I envied the moms I saw out with their kids on weekdays and would have jumped at the opportunity. But now that we are in a situation where I can, I’m afraid of all of what could go wrong. What if I need to go back to work earlier than expected, and I’ve been out long enough that they con... More
I am a STAY AT HOME MOM and I don’t drive due to serious anxiety problems so I’m literally stuck at home. I’ve thought of getting a job but I’d pretty much be working just to pay the baby sitter so that’s out of the question. I have no clue what to do at this point I’m starting to feel tired of my relationship and have started arguments for no reason because I feel like my husband is just free... More
Hi FTM here & 1st time to quit working for more than a year now since I moved here in the US while expecting my now 1 yr old baby. My husband & I agreed that for now, even how challenging it is, that I stay at home while we haven’t put our little one in a daycare & I don’t really feel comfortable w/ a babysitter yet. He didn’t require me to work, for now we can manage, but I feel li... More
I've been a SAHM for 2 years now and am desperate to go back to work. I was a lawyer before and my husband is also a lawyer. His job requires travel for days at a time probably once a month but he could also have to do trials in other parts of the country, which could be weeks (he just started this job so we don't know exactly how many trials there will be in other states). He also will... More
