Been reading various threads on mn with interest for several weeks now.why do u ladies feel do pessimistic about ur work life balance and compete with the ' oh poor me title'. If you want a better quality of life, surely u can downsize and have less financial Responsibilty and then look after ur dc yourself instead of paying others to look after them. I just don't get why you have kids unless you wanna love And look them yourself. This doesnt apply to single the financial gain worth it?

Ladies? Check

Textspeak? Check

Boring Controversial subject matter? Check

OP, I believe both seasons of Homeland are available on 4OD if you need some late-night excitement.

OrangeLily Mon 26-Nov-12 23:07:20

Hahahahaha outstanding OP...

Ask working dads the same question and we'll answer.

Yes, we 'career mums' will then get back to you and answer your interesting and well-posed question. There'll be a consensus, as we all think the same.

Is that ok with you? I mean, U?

Is the financial gain worth it?

Yes, thanks. Next fatuous question?

Otherworld Mon 26-Nov-12 23:08:01

Blah blah whatever - try harder next time.

Dear Jenna, you have totally changed my mind. That short but oh so insightful post of yours has totally made me see the error of my ways. What a wicked witch I have been. Thank you. And God bless. Your kids are so lucky.

Is that better?

IAmSoFuckingRock Mon 26-Nov-12 23:08:46

Kewcumber Mon 26-Nov-12 23:08:51

Why did all the text speak in your first post disappear in your second? confused

LilyVonSchtupp Mon 26-Nov-12 23:08:59

Why did your DH have a kid if he wasn't willing to stay at home and look after her? Bloody career dads only focusing on their own goals and desires.

Chubfuddler Mon 26-Nov-12 23:09:04

How old is your child btw? I'm betting less than twelve months ....

WorraLiberty Mon 26-Nov-12 23:09:18

Fucking hell are you really that bored?

There are so many other more worthwhile things you could be doing than starting a thread like this.

Shovelling shit from left to right and back again.
Standing on one leg and pretending to be a Stork.
Read a book and learn something.
Try to head butt the ceiling.
Increase your hand-eye coordination by throwing kitchen knives at the wall.
Dress up like a burglar and try to break in to your own home.

Please think seriously about these things in future before logging on to MN.

Thank you thanks

Jenna if your post is genuine...

..then you are VERY fortunate to have a partner who earns enough money to enable you to be a SAHM. Many of us don't have that luxury. We HAVE to work to survive you daft bint.

I can't believe I've been working for no reason. All that time I thought I was doing it to keep a roof over our heads and it turns out we were just living beyond our means.

And my poor children, will somebody think of the children

<weeps, wails and writes immediate letter of resignation>

Jenna2012 thank you so much for coming here today and enlightening me.

Jenna2012 Mon 26-Nov-12 23:11:09

Sarcastic comments, I don't live with parents, I have my own property with do. I just feel sad that sum ppl prioritise themselves over their kids.

Tincletoes Mon 26-Nov-12 23:11:19

But I can buy loads of handbags! And go on lavish tropical holidays! I wish

Are the Daily Mail trying a new approach to get replies on here? One of them had to realise how to do it one day, ladies

Cortana Mon 26-Nov-12 23:11:33

"because I believe I'm the best educator/ facilitator for my child"


"so plz no abuse"

Yeah, okay. hmm

redrubyshoes Mon 26-Nov-12 23:11:37

I feel torn about this OP.

I work with working mums. Three just get on with it and one disappears at every opportunity for piano lessons, ballet class, ill child etc etc. She hasn't done a full week for months and screams blue murder if she can't have time off for half term etc

The other working mums are brilliant and understand that they are paid for the work they do. Fine by me.

Juggling the two is bloody awful as I know.

Oh belt up you lot with the "popcorn" quips. It's very tedious.
