My husband has a friend who criticizes me for staying home with a toddler. Every time my DH talks to him on the phone, he asks my DH when I am going to get a job. My DH has tried to explain about the costs of daycare & how it wouldn't benefit us much for me to work right now, but he's been asking this for a long time now (about when I will get a job), and he's even lectured me about it as well. Now, the real irony is this: this man, who criticizes me for not working, does not work himself! He quit his job several years ago, and is financially supported by his male partner. And he does not have kids at home to take care of, like I do, but he criticizes me for staying home with my toddler. What's the old saying? If you live in a glass house, don't throw bricks.
