Hi there... I'm a new listener. I've enjoyed your jokes and meme's on Instagram and needed a new podcast for my hour+ commute each morning. I listened to your SAHM episode recently and I had to come on here and comment. You asked for feedback, so from a full-time working Mom, here is my feedback. I think it is very hard for a working mom to hear a SAHM complain about how busy their days are and how stressful maintaining a household can be. The question a lot of working mom’s probably have is, how can it be that hard? Because every single thing you put on your “to-do list” that you shared on the episode, every task you are responsible for, those are all things that working mom’s do as well. We just do them on top of a 40 hour work week. Squeezing those tasks into the 2 hours we get in the evening after the kids go to bed and any time left on the weekends after family obligations are met. For working mom’s, having all week to get those tasks done, even if it’s just 9-2 while the kids are in school, would be a dream. And I am not one of those working mom’s with any outside help. My biggest luxury is a cleaning lady that comes once a month. And I’m sure you know, with a husband, two young kids and a dog, a cleaning lady once a month doesn’t get me very far. That is why it was hard to hear you tell men “get your wife a cleaning crew, she’ll give you the best sex of your life” to which your husband responded that you that you have a cleaning lady every week and you said “but that’s not the same”. You scold your husband for not showing you appreciation and you both discuss how, if you had a job, he would help more equally. And honestly, that is laughable. You aren’t in the role of running that household because you are a SAHM, you are in the role of running the household because you are a Mom. Period. My husband is amazing and will do what he can. But I still run 90% of that house. And women do that for one simple reason, because we are damn good at it. We have the ability to juggle a million different things at one time because we are women. We are built for it. Whether it be in a kitchen or a conference room. We handle everything because that is the only way things will get done. So you say that you feel undervalued as a SAHM…welcome to the world of every mother. We all feel undervalued. We all feel under appreciated. Please don’t think that working mom’s get some kind of extra support from their husbands. I am the one running out on my lunchbreak to buy diapers, not my husband. I am the one racing to the grocery store in order to grab milk before I go pick up my kid who’s been in daycare for 10 hours, not my husband. I squeeze in calls to the teacher/doctor/dentist in between work meetings, not my husband. You may not get paid monetarily but there are benefits to being a SAHM that working mom’s don’t have. You say that you earned the right to relax for a couple of hours during the day if you’re up with the kids all night. And you’re right, you do deserve a chance to recharge. But next time you complain about not getting a paycheck, remember that there are women out there who had to stay up with a sick kid all night and then be at the office at 8am. We don’t have the luxury of taking time to recuperate from a bad night. We have to hurdle into the next morning with bags under our eyes listening to podcasts in the car to try to keep from falling asleep at the wheel. Because for most of us women, our bosses are men. They aren’t going to grant us any kind of flexibility in our work schedule to account for the unforeseen problems that come with having kids. We are expected to show up and do our job regardless of the fact we’re working on 2 hours of sleep. And yes, working mom’s get paid time off and vacation days. But most of those are saved for the inevitable sicknesses, for the ridiculous amount of school closures and holidays and for showing up a few times a year for school events in the middle of the day so you don’t have to explain to a teary-eyed 5 year old why you couldn’t come in to the class and volunteer like the other Mom’s do. At the end of the day all women are pulled in a million different directions. We’re expected to be everything for everybody. So it’s not easy either way. But hearing that episode was frustrating. I like my job, I don’t love it. I’m don’t skip out of the office every day feeling fulfilled, lucky to be doing what I love. But I live in one of the most expensive states in the country and I need to work for my family. If given the choice, and that’s what SAHM mom’s have, the choice to stay home, then I think I’d be a little more grateful and try to remember that it could be harder on you. You could have all the responsibilities you have now, the guilt you aren't doing enough, a husband to please, a house to keep in order plus a full time job.
