who is proud of me.
We were in Kazakhstan adopting our second child a few weeks ago and were at a restaurant where we ran into some American expats with little kids. We were chatting with them as our kids played and the husband was telling us a bit about his work and then dh asked his wife what she did.
"Oh, I don't work. I'm home with the kids."
DH - "Oh no, you WORK! You probably work harder by 9am than most people do all day."
The lady looked surprised, blushed and then said softly "that's what my husband says too."
I just wanted to open a thread to ask if there are other SAHM's who feel so valued by their SO's. DH is always so suportive and never gives me any grief if the house is a wreck (which is everyday :LOL ) or if I don't feel like making dinner at night and he and I "fend for ourselves." He always says "You've been working all day babe, I can take care of myself."
Of course, that only makes me want to pamper him more, which might be his strategy :LOL .
Anyway, I LOVE SAHMing, most of the time, and wanted to hear about other people's experiences.
If you DON'T feel suported, what would make the difference for you?
If you DO feel suported, how and in what ways?
