Ok so I understand we stay at home moms have cleaning we do. But unless the house is really bad, i do laundry, and little cleaning here and there to keep it comfertable. But my time is spend mostly with my son. HE is the reason I wanted to be a stay at home mom.
I am having a hard time with this because we co-house with my mother in law, and she comes home and I can tell by the way she looks at the house, that it isn't perfectly clean, then what the heck did I do all day. That is exactly what she is thinking, i know it. She makes remarks.
I do alot of things, but this is my theory: a clean house isn't going to matter ten years from now, my time spend with my child is.
Why can't some people understand this? Our house is not filthy, not even close. I spend ten minutes in each room, each day. I do laundry, i make a home cooked meal everyday with fridays being my only day off for cooking because that day we just do pizza.
My husband supports me.
But his family always think I am just sitting on the couch eating bon bons watching soaps!!
Anyone else tired of people judging stay at home moms?
We're not maids, nor slaves, we are Moms staying home to teach our children about life! Sure I teach him how to pick up after himself, and we do. But cleaning is not my main priority!
