No bon bons here

Yesterday a friend of mine called and asked if we could meet for lunch Tuesday, when I told her I had to check my planner she laughed.  I told her I teach on Tuesdays and Thursdays so we needed to pick another day and she laughed again saying “just cancel.”  Why would I cancel?  Why would she even suggest that?  Because she works outside the home at a REAL JOB and I don’t.    I know that I only teach for 8-10 hours a week, but it is still work.  Being your own boss is not always easy or fun, if I take a day off I don’t get paid because  I have no sick leave or vacation time. 

I have found since I have become a SAHM and more recently a part time WAHM some of my friends think I have no life and I sit around watching soaps all day eating bon bons.  That is not the case.  Spending my entire day chasing a toddler is hard work.  So give Stay at Home Moms some credit they have the hardest job around.
