Don't Dismiss me....

SAHM rant!

Just because I have chosen to stay at home with my children and to put their needs first, does not mean that I lack an opinion.

Just becasue I don't have a title behind my name, does not mean that I lack an education.

Because I have made these choices I feel that I am wasting my education, and I lack the personal fulfillment of having a career of my own....

So please, when you ask me what "I do"...don't dismiss me when I tell you that I'm staying at home with my children. There should NOT be an uncomfortable silence becasue I don't have a title attached to my name. I'm not stupid, lazy or uneducated. I have made a choice that I hope will make life better for my children.

(Thank you for tuning in and we will return to our regular scheduled programming.)

Bravo! Well said. It's funny, because as a well educated, working mom, when a woman tells me that she is a SAHM, I am ENVIOUS!!

Let's enjoy our time with our children now... in 10 years, they'll want nothing to do with us! :)

Brava!!! Well said!!! And, for your information, you are not only a SAHM, you are also a business woman with a new and exciting business that is on the move!! And I believe that people who get "uncomfortable" when you say that you are a mom do so because they lack so much self esteem that they need to put you down for not having a "title". You know what, I would give up my "title" in a heart beat. It sucks!! I love being at home with my kids. I love being the PAC president and baking cupcakes and going on field trips. I love being home and making dinner every night and giving them my all. One day, they are not going to need me anymore. Then I can go back to my "title". Stupid people. They don't know what is good in life.
