Like any job there are things that you like and there are things that you don't. I already shared one thing that I can't stand about this job. I said I would be back with more and here I am. Let's be real. No one likes everything about what they do for a living. SAHMs are no different. It's okay to say that you might hate the fact that there is always going to be that one Mom that makes you feel inadequate.
Just like that rock star at a traditional job that's always getting all the bonuses and certificates. This Mom is always dressed to a tee. Her makeup is done. Her hair is done. She's been to the gym. Her family is eating a super healthy organic paleo diet. This lady has like four kids and they all look like little GAP ad models. Of course they speak two different languages, can write their names, read, count and recite the Declaration of Independence. Did I mention that they were all three. Quadruplets. All potty trained.
Yep. She's the Mom that makes the rest of us look bad. But we allow it. We allow what other women are doing with children that we don't even really know to somehow make us feel less than. I hate that about this job. Sometimes the pressure to win the Mommy Olympics is too much.
The pressure. The pressure to have it all together everyday. It's so unrealistic. After all, don't people have a bad day at their traditional jobs? I know I did.
