I consider myself a work at home mom. Not a stay at home mom, but I feel like people classify me as a stay at home mom, anyway. I found out from my fiance that people at his job, which is predominantly women, were talking about it - specifically, me. Note that none of these women have met me. They have been saying that my fiance must spoil me and that I need to get out more often and I should work there instead. The reasons I would never work there include:
-We know nobody I trust with my child.
-I don't trust daycare with my child. Nor can we afford that.
-He has been there since October and already wants out. He used to work at Wal*Mart which treated him like crap (and I did, too and left) but he still came home in a better mood.
-We constantly get texts of people trying to get him to take their hours because they are also miserable.
-I worked at home prior to even meeting my fiance. It's something I have become passionate about. I hated working outside of the home, this is where I feel I belong.
But what upsets me the most is that they think I don't get out. When my stepson and his older brother were here for a month, I was the one trying to get my fiance to get out with them. I convinced him to take them to a roller rink because boys got in free one day and that was a hard time convincing him. I took them out to the park. I took them to meet him at work. I take my son to meet him at work. From the stories I hear, the girls there DO look down on stay at home/work at home moms and just constantly berate them (there's a lot of moms there). It's frustrating, because I don't look down on them for being working moms outside the home.
