I'm a stay at home mum to a beautiful 16 month old boy and proud to be one. I'm very lucky that I have the chance to be at home with my son but I can't help but feel as though I'm being judge. I'm constantly being ask 'when are you going back to work' and when I answer that i'm not planning to anytime soon I get some strange looks. I've been called fat and lazy, I'm not financially contributing to my family and I'd rather go to mothers group then get off my fat lazy ars and get a job! All of these comments were made by a friend (no longer). I feel as though I need to prove myself, but I know I'm the best person to be at home with my child. My husband dose not want me to return to the workforce as he also thinks I should be at home with our son. Both our families are very supportive as both our mothers were SAHM. I would never judge another mother for there choice or needing to go back to work, what works for one family may not work for another. Why can't people see that. Sorry just having a vent!
