I used to post here years ago. Like 7-8. I couldn't remember my login information so I created a brand new account.

I've been a SAHM, WAHM and WOHM. For the last three years, I've WAH exclusively as a freelancer.

About two years ago, I experienced my first-ever SAHM criticism IRL. My husband had a work function to attend to out of town; the wives came along for the legendary after party. During the course of this day, I must have mentioned something about work in front of one of the younger, child-free wives. She blurted out, "Oh, you work? I thought were just a SAHM!" From that moment on, she warmed up completely to me.

Welcome back to the board! We're totally happy to have you jump back into the debates.

About making an offer on her Tivo ... I nearly spit my coffee laughing while reading that :) Don't feel immature...

Maturity isn't thinking only kind thoughts (that's sainthood); it's thinking what you think and *not* saying it. You passed.

Wait, you mean you're done with your platter o'crow? Every time one of my kids hits some hideous new teenage milestone, I wonder when I can try a new flavor of bird. Pigeon, maybe? Or blue jay? I'm sure they'd be especially bitter and nasty.

You're mostly done with the crow when your own kid fires up his grill ;)
