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.
