Re: Acronym really bothering me
I know several people who refuse to call themselves SAHMs because they think that makes them sound like some one who lounges on the couch eating bon-bons and watching soaps. They think SAHM sounds lazy, where as full-time parent says what they feel they are- parents going-going-going round the clock to take care of the kiddos. They take offense to being called SAHPs. I think people choose to take offense too easily.
I honestly don't have an opinion. Labels annoy me. I'm so much more than a SAHM, WAHM, WOHM, FTM, wife, CDer, BWer, EBFer, CLWer, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, continuous. Why try to box yourself in with a bunch of labels? I'm me- a happy chick with three kids, one husband, making the best choices we know how to make a happy life for ourselves and our kids.
