The Real Housewifes of Sparkle City

Most of my close friends know that being a stay-at-home-mom is quite enough job for me, thank you very much. I have no interest whatsoever to start a career right now. I have no interest in just getting any old job for $8 an hour, either. (Although a discount at Gymboree would be nice!)

So, only a handful of people (mainly Brian's co-workers, all male) have commented that I now have TWO children in school from 8-2 every day, so why am I still a stay-at-home mom?

What do I *do* all day? I mean, besides talk on the phone, eat chocolate ice cream on the couch, play on Facebook, and watch Days of Our Lives?

Well, let me tell you that I haven't done any of that one bit. One of these days I AM going to take a mental health day and do all of those things for an entire 6 hours to catch a break. But right now I'm too busy to even think about doing that!

I met two other moms today for breakfast at IHOP for a MOMS Club activity. One of my friends' husbands had called her cell and asked, "You are going to breakfast? That must be nice. With two other friends who don't work either? What are you all, the Real Housewives of Sparkle City?"

If so, where the heck is my mansion, maid, and gardener? They've got a lot of work to do.

  2. Oh, we work all right. Stay at home moms do more work than most men could ever imagine and get little to no recognition for it and forget an actual paycheck. This is by far the hardest job with the longest hours that I've ever had- heck , at least when you have a "real job" you're required to get a break every few hours- not so much at home. Don't get me wrong, I love staying home with my kids but it is a hard job some days. And it is always so irritating that people discount the work done by women in their homes.

  5. I'm with you! Real housewife of Heath Springs, SC. A career simply holds no appeal for me. But, now that all of my boys are in school, I am having a tough time filling my days!
    Not a fan!
