*Ducks for Cover* I actually don't mind the article and agree with it. Sure, everyone has the right to vent, and no being a SAHM isn't all roses and sunshine (I was one for seven years and HATED it by the end). However, I was always thankful to be in a position where I could SAH with my babies. When I did mother's group, we had an online group so we could chat daily. One woman in particular never had anything nice to say...it was all 'that disgusting f'in B just p!ssed all over his floor. FFS I am sick of cleaning up his f'in p!ss the dirty little f'er' all day, every day because she had one child who was toilet training etc. She didn't speak to her kids like this, this was just her way of venting....but she vented constantly. She clearly didn't enjoy being a SAHM, and I did feel for her that she was a SAHM when she obviously didn't want to be but it was hard to read day in and day out and it got the better of me and I left the online group because I couldn't cope with it.
I get it...I loved the 'being a SAHM sucks, actually' thread because I could relate to it so much. I understand the need to vent, but I also understand that hair pulling moment when you just want to say to someone 'far out, you had kids, enjoy them while you've got them. Don't let the wee on the floor be the focal point of your day. Say something nice about your children just once, you won't be home with them forever.'
