SAHM's not nice???

I read this article an was very dissappointed. Have you experienced this?? I have been a SAHM for 7 years and love it. While it is not easy and we have to sacrifice to do it, I feel so blessed to be able to. My other SAHM friends (and my friends who work for that matter!) are not like this at all and it makes me sad this woman has such negative perceptions of stay at home moms.....YIKES. Do you think your friends are like this?? Mine are NOT! http://www.bettyconfidential.com/ar/h/a/a02549.html

I suppose it exists somewhere, but my friends certainly don't act like that.

>I think about all my lady friends from my church congregation and about the fun things they have planned that I'll be missing while slaving away at the office. I missed their trip to the pumpkin patch last week. I've never been able to go to their Thursday morning playgroups. I can't join their 9 a.m. book club. I've yet to attend one of their Ladies Luncheons. I am left out of their little club 100 percent of the time. All because I work and they don't.

Most of them don't know my kid's name and they really have no idea who I am.<

I don't know why she is surprised. These women certainly aren't the friends that she thinks they are. She said it herself. They don't know her or even her kid's name. They are someone who she says "Hi" to at church.

You probably have some SAHM's who are like that, same as you have some work places where the WOHM's are like that.

I have to say, that when i was a SAHM, and now I am a WOHMPT, that is how all of the SAHM's were. I lived in a very snobby town, and these women were nasty and mean. They didn't like me very much, even though I too was a SAHM. They didn't like the way I dressed or looked, and it really peeved them off when their husband's were checking me out. Plus, even though i am 31 I don't even look it. It isn't my fault, it's their problem. So yes, i agree with the article, and I find it sad that most of the SAHm's I personally knew were this mean. Also, and i

When they did attend a meeting they felt uncomfortable and realized this was not a group of people they wanted to hang around with.

Clearissa-- Totally agree with you...there are thos types of people all around- doesn't matter what they do (SAH or work).....It just made me sad she was happy to go back to work because of how other women made her feel--


I also believe you can choose to surround yourself with certain types of people-- if I had friends like that- I would not stick around -- I would go out an seek some kind, nice people. I don't want to be around that type and I certainely don't want my children around it either!
