[quote=sgjsmum;123114]Any Sahms that have been managing the household and kids without a maid for many years by now?

How do you manage boredom? The housework never seems to end. At times I do feel it is such a 'waste' to stay at home for so many years.
I dont really get bored as there is tonnes to do.I can be quite a cleanaholic.Or i spend my time reading(while feeding baby milk..hehhe),watch tv n then i take out my kids alot.Sometimes i go to the movies or clubbing etc.
Do your hbs show appreciation and affection openly or has been taking you for granted over the years?
Ya he knows i rule the house.Everything!Fr kids schools to finances..his job is to work bring home the bacon n when he comes back fr work,help with household chores n spend time with kids.He is quite a homebody who likes cooking n stuff so he likes it.I am good at planning n organising.Different areas so we make the best of it.
Do you feel like reverting back to working society at time but feeling anxious?
hmmm.havent really given a thought.But given my personality i adapt pretty easily so i wldnt worry my head about it.When it comes to the bridge i will cross it.
Do you feel unbalanced at times when pple deem whoever bringing back the bacon as more respectable, more say?
Ya they dare say tht to me i will kick them to the moon..hahhah.
I run my household well.N since i do the finances as well i am the BOSS!Pple never do say tht about me.They know i am well educated n tht i am looking after kids on my own.More than often i get more respect.
Do you feel that being at home, it means everything needs to be handled by us definitely as 'we are the one staying at home what!'??
Nope.Housework shared between me n family.We all have different areas tht we r "in charge " of at home so its all well.
Dont feel sad .I understand it can be difficult at times.Do wht makes you happy.Its not all fun n games staying at home.No fixed eating time.Continuous stuff to be done etc.. but imagine this..without you doing all tht the house will be in chaos!you r the queen of the house..rule the way you deem fit..cheer up!!
