You're my hero. I've spent SO much time and energy trying to bring myself to a place where thoughtless comments like that don't bother me. Between the "full-time mom" title and the statement that "Being a SAHM is the hardest job there is" I honestly want to cry and avoid every mom I know.
I work 4p-midnight, so many of my mom friends (most of which are SAHMs) think of me as "one of them". That's great until they start talking about how much harder their lives are now that they don't WOH. What does that say about me? Unfortunately, very few have taken the time to listen to, and try to understand, my concerns.
I've taken to just keeping my mouth shut, which goes against everything that I believe in. I KNOW that I work hard, and that should be enough. I just wish that somebody, besides my dh, would appreciate all that I go through.
I know. It's a process.
