I'm glad too that writing this thread has helped
I'm personally really happy as a stay at home mum, but if you're not there are options to change it and get the fulfilment you need (one of the benefits of living in our society).
I noticed a lot of people say they're not happy or fulfilled and I hope this thread gives then the push they need to do something that's just for them.

@Mrs Tickle this is fantastic news! even if for now, this has just started a dialogue, that's further along than before.
Proud of you (weird coming from a stranger) but seriously this is a good thing!

Thank you for posting. I have a 2.5DS and I work full time. I could not survive at home with him. I feel for you.

Wow! Great post - good on you! You are allowed not to like it. Just like I am allowed to say "I am hating this" when my much longed for IVF baby is crying non stop.
Doesn't make you any better or worse or ungrateful - just makes you real!

Great thread op and I'm glad that your dh has taken this all on board.
I'm a new sahm and am finding it really hard to adjust, I have a velcro baby who cries almost constantly and thinks sleep is for amateurs. I am over the relentless pile of washing, never ending bottles and have no idea where all the dishes come from!
I am used to working, I've been the main breadwinner in my relationship for almost 10 years and to have that switched is a massive adjustment. I've chosen not to put my study on hold because I am desperate for that mental stimulation. I am even starting to negotiate a job where I can work from home.
One of the hardest things for me is having no car atm, I can't even go to mums group each week because we live in an area with no public transport. So the only social interaction I'm getting is from dh, or if mil decides to pop over (which is literally just her whinging about one thing or another), Facebook or BubHub. To say I am bored is an understatement.

hheehe OP I loved this post and it made me giggle. Very well written and I did relate to a lot of it, however
I work, 3 days per week, and feel the exact opposite to you. I despise having to go to work so much. I was so much happier when I was at home.
Different strokes for different folks! I'd swap with you any day, then we could both be happy! Haha.

I know exactly what you mean, I am so sick of being told, "at least you don't have to work", why do people not understand looking after a child 24/7 is infact a difficult task! Being able to go to work sounds like a damn good vacation to me.
as for you comment about bookaboo, I could not agree more! I can't stand him, or a multitude of the other brain numbing shows.
I feel myself getting dumber, and like you I also think, okay well what did I do today.
thank you for your post, you've said everything so well. Hopefully a SAHM hater reads this and pulls their big head out of their you know what
