    The title says that being a sahm sucks. I said it doesnt suck for everyone. I didnt say that people had to love it or keep quiet about the fact they clearly hate it.
    I dont hate it... but yeah like the title says I think it sucks big time most days. Reading that I must clearly hate it kind of made me feel uncomfortable...

    I don't hate it. I think @anewme summed it up very well. It can be great but it can suck too. Like everything in life I guess.

    I've even been honest with my oldest and told her that some days being home with kids stinks. I always talk about the positives but I'm not going to lie.

    Everything ok? Seems like a bit of an extreme response?

    Sorry op, you lost me when you started referring to other parents as 'deadbeats'.

    I reread the OP. If another parent insinuated one of my kids was slow calling them a "deadbeat" would be the kindest thing I could muster.

    Op also took pains to highlight the 'deadbeats' manner of speech, which I read as maybe this person had less developed social / language skills. I found it unnecessary. We all interpret things differently.

    Nothing wrong with calling a rude Dumbass a deadbeat (IMO).

    Hugs OP!

    I'm about to go on my second lot of mat leave in 2 weeks time and whilst I'm excited to finish up a job I hate, I do know I will eventually miss those 3 days of me being able to be me, have adult conversations, be mentally stimulated, have leisurely lunches with friends and colleagues.

    I have absolutely no idea how Ill cope being at home for 11 months, so hats off to you and other SAHMs, I couldn't personally cope.

    I also work in marketing and there is always a need for well priced, talented copywriters to write brochure text, website text, press releases etc. Perhaps you could put all 3 kids in occasional care for 2 afternoons a week and dedicate that to freelance copywriting. Its the equivalent of just 1 day in care, but you get that time to do something you're great at, use your brain and bring in a little cash as well. It will keep your skills up so when your kids are all at school, you still would have had your foot in the workplace and you can start a new career when the time is right...? Just a suggestion.
