Do any of you SAHMs out there ever feel guilty? Like, guilty that you get to stay at home in your pj'sand blog and do some laundry and dishes and play with you kids while your husband works? Superman's job has been incredibly stressful lately and he's had a hard time making himself get out of bed and go to work. In fact, he showed me this commercial today, saying it was probably bad that it described his life so well.
The small animal bit is especially true.
Anyway........it makes me want to be a self-mutilator or something (like the Albino in The DaVinci Code) to make our lives equally sucky.
Am I alone in this? Before his job got as stressful as it is right now and we'd have those "who has it worst conversations," I could put up a pretty good argument. I had two kids in diapers. Had to do the dishes every day. All the laundry, mopping, grocery shopping on a budget........perhaps it was a different kind of challenging, but challenging nonetheless.
Now, however, I only have 1 in diapers. And I'm really working on getting him out of them. (Which I guess is another point for me on the "challenging" side, but whatever.) The boys keep each other entertained all day. I get to blog, and go to playdates, and the library, and the park. I get to go shopping, watch Vh1 while I fold laundry, and read books. Sure, I have to do a load of dishes each day, but how hard is that, really? And most the time, I enjoy fixing dinner.
So basically, I feel guilty. His job is intensely stressful. (I know I've used that word a couple of times, but I just can't think of a better one.) It's a battle for him all day, every day. And I.......blog. And play games with my kids.
Have you ever felt guilty for having it easier (for a time, at least?)
