NOTE: I am not referring to ALL women in this scenario.
Why do some women decide the above and complain about it. I mean..you CHOSE to have mutliple children close in age, you CHOSE to become a SAHP, so why do I see these same women on Oprah or boards complaining about how hard they have it and why they HAVE to do ALL the work.
Well, the way I see it is, if you choose to have multiple children close in age, then you are to realize BEFORE hand that it's going to take alot of time, patience, energy, and effort to raise them. It will also cost you financially to do it as well. Why complain about sleep deprivation when you CHOSE to have multiple children back to back. One child will probaly cause sleep deprivation for the first 1-2 years, but then you don't get some sleep because you have one two more lagging right behind that child. So you complain of sleep deprivation for the next 5-10 years. Then women complain about not having enough hands to do for all the children and not enough of them to attend to all of them. WEell what did you expect when you have a newborn, a 1 year old, a 19 month old, a 3 year old,a nd a 4 year old.
Then they complain of the housework that needs to be done in the process. Well you chose to have multiple children and most likely chose to stay home so you wouldn't have to pay two house notes in child care, and your husband has to work his 40-60 hours a week just to provide (some people may be rich, so this part may not pertain to them).
What I'm saying is, why CHOOSE to do it and then complain. Then also, they want to know why people are not interested in babysitting. So instead of admitting they can't find a babysitter, they say they ONLY attend family oriented events/functions and are not interested in adult only event/functions.
