Most of the time people think that us Stay At Home Moms (SAHM) just sit on our ass, pig out, watch tv all day long. Nothing makes me more furious! I have been a working mom, a work at home mom (WAHM) and a SAHM. They are all equally tough and all have their pros and cons. For people who think that a SAHM does nothing, they need a reality check and I give them a day with my two boys and my two daycare kids before they pull their hair out and run for their car screaming!

I do not get breaks. I do not get to "clock out". I do not get vacation time or sick days. I do not get to run into the store real quick. I do not get to sleep in. I do not get weekends or nights off. I do not get a pay check. I do not get a tax return. I do not get a thank you or a promotion. I do not get a twenty minute commute in peace. I do not get a 401k or a retirement. I do not get to potty by myself.
