This is a very loose debate, but i really want to post it because its been really getting to me lately.
I am constantly inundated with blog posts and facebook posts of SAHM's who love to talk about being a SAHM. They talk about how hard it is for them, how wonderful what they are doing is, how fortunate they are, how fortunate their spouses are, how much they have to sacrifice. Sometimes what is posted is very offensive, without them even realizing it. Sometimes its not.
Now I try to consider the flip side, or if my view is accidentally being skewed without me realizing it, but in this case I've decided its not, at least not as of late. SAHM's talk more about SAH then WOHM's talk about WOH.
My question is not "what can i do about" or "Should they talk about it so much"...my question is why? Where does the need to talk about it so much come from?
I'm not saying every SAHM does this, I'm saying a lot do and more SAHM's seem to feel the need to talk about their situation than WOHM's do. What drives this?
If i sound whiney about it, thats because I am...i find it kind of irritating. Just a feeling, nothing I'd ever actually be rude about.
