Add ko lang ha. I dont know if meron senyo naka experience nito. Sometimes kasi other people think na pag SAHM ay tamad o pasarap sa buhay. Ako kase naexperience ko to. Na kulang nalang sabihin sakin na 'hoy magtrabaho ka' or ipamuka sakin na wala nako narating dahil SAHM ako. Nakakainis, kase they dont know anything naman. Ayoko nalang din patulan. Para sakin, as long as OK kami ni hubby sa ganito.. hanggat kaya pa, basta hindi ko napapabayaan ang anak at asawa ko.. wala nako pakelam sa sinasabi nila.  ;)

^mommy nuna: korek ka dyan, wag nalang patulan. so far di ko pa naman na-experience yan kahit sa mga kapatid ko dito sa bahay wala naman nagsasabi or nagpaparamdam sakin niyan kasi nakikita naman nila yung pagod at puyat sa pag-alaga ng bata (which probably served as a lesson to them) tsaka naawa na nga lang sila sakin na puro palabas ang savings ko ngayon. pero para sakin, ang important ay naaalagaan ang bata at nagagabayan sa paglaki. what other people say are the least of my worries.

kudos to us moms! 24/7 job without pay but with the greatest rewards :D

@ sis tiny_little_mom - same tayo sis. sa family ko, walang problem. supportive sila sa pagiging sahm ko. Happy sila sa nakikita nila na talagang naaalagaan ko mabuti ang anak ko. And they're proud of me.

But i have this relative na laging may comment at issue. And this other one na everytime makakausap ko sinasabi na i should work na like her kasi bla bla bla. Yah, i may not have the career that she has pero sa isip-isip ko.. "hindi niya din naman kaya yung pag-aalaga na nagagawa ko para sa anak ko" tahimik nalang ako pag ganon. Minsan nakakairita lang talaga.

@ sis LiasMum - correct ka sis. hindi ito madali, pero masaya!

korek.. grabe nefeel ko yan.. halos ipamuka sakin yan ng MIL ko. grabe siya.. e hello kakaresign ko lang naman. dahil di nako happy sa work ko.plus im preggy pa. so hirap na kasi Callcenter. so mga 1 month akong nasa bahay. tapos walang yaya so ako nagaalaga, enjoy naman ako. tapos halos ipagtulakan ako na magwork, e napagusapan na namin yung ng hubby ko. anyway at that time kasi c hubby ay di pinapasweldo, so ipon ko lang ang ginagastos namin. dec un so may 13th month at money na binigay saken ng mom ko na nasa canada so wala akong kakampi.hmp..  nakikitira lang kasi kami, reason is wala kasing yaya so para lang may titingin sa mga bata if incase need umalis.
tapos aun back to work na ko ngayon kahit mahirap, wala parin yaya. pero pang gabi ako tapos normal na oras ang work ni hubby, so salitan kami sa bata. un nga lang kulang na ko sa tulog. kaya wala maxado pahinga. pero atleast masaya kasi kasama ko c bebe at walang nangengeelam na mil, kasi umalis na kami dun.

i'm also a SAHM since 3 month old baby ko..umalis kasi yaya niya so we don't have a choice but i have to resign even if i love my job..i'm enjoying it and high salary din..at first dami hesitations, siyempre sa budget and on what am i going to do once i stayed at home...

what can i say..for 6 months now that i'm SAHM..super hirap but super fulfilling coz every milestones or developments ni baby nakikita ko..captured every moment of it sabi nga nila..and mas natuturuan ko siya sa lahat...she's growing to be a good and easy to learn baby...kaya lahat ng pagod napapalitan ng saya ...even though minsan parang gusto ko magday-off (hahaha) just to unwind pero mawala lang baby ko sa paningin ko ng 2 hrs parang ang hirap na..
started April, we managed the sari-sari store business dito sa house and i can say na super nadagdagan lahat ng pagod ko...pero worth it din kasi malakas naman yung benta and super nakakatulong sa gastusin kay baby...once i was able to adjust sa store and pag may katulong na kami nakuha i'll try to work online naman for additional income...super sacrifice and time management lang talaga...

kudos to SAHM and WAHM...full time mommy..i salute u..
mas madali pa din magwork in terms of stress, pagod kaysa sa mag-alaga ng baby 24/7 dagdag pa alaga ng hubby...

korek mommy tiny and nuna,im also a SAHM and i cant deny the fact na some people will say bad remarks as baket hindi mag-work?ganito..ganyan.Ako naman since nagka-2nd baby nako i chose not to work na talaga for 3 yrs now.Its hard talaga kaya thankful din ako kay hubby kase he is not pressuring me to work and i thank God na kaya naman ng income niya lahat ng expenses yun nga lang hindi din kame gano maka save up kase sa dami ng loans at bills every month.Naisip ko na ding mag-sideline.online job ganyan kaya lang hindi ko pa din gaano matutukan kase talagang hands on mom din talaga me at super todllers pa ng 2 babies ko,my first born pa nga is going to nursery na this pasukan.Another thing is that super hirap maghanap ngayon ng yaya na magtatagal at mapagkakatiwalaan mo talaga swerte lang yung iba they have their moms or MILs to take care of their kids.On my part kase theyre both far asa province kase and theyre old na rin to take care so hindi ko na rin assume na they can help me take care of the kids.
I truly agree na this job is 24/7,no dayoff,no OT pay etc..but i think i have learned to love it na rin,im just always thinking na lang na not all moms can be like us na nabigyan ng opportunity na maalagaan ang ating mga anak mula pagkabata at habang lumalaki sila nasusubaybayan natin.
Cheers mga fellow SAHM!

hello mommies! I love this thread, count me in, SAHM din ako for almost a year now though two years na ko jobless. I resigned since we want to have baby already and i must say i didn't regret my decisions at all. I had a miscarriage the first time, so ingat kami on the second baby, and now tutok naman sa pagaalaga. Sinabi nyo pa, 24/7, kakapagod talaga, test of  patience talaga, especially etong little boy ko, everything on his crib, he throws, all his toys are in the floor.  Minsan nga gusto ko na din magday off, or magparlor hehe. I just miss yung time na yun and of course intellectual conversation.

I enjoy every moment of being a SAHM. Its our second chance of being child again, ngayon ko nga lang nadiscover yung ibat ibang songs pambata kakatuwa lang :)

Goodluck fellow SAHM's!

i totally agree, love this thread..
i am also a SAHM pero one month pa lang,  i was planning to quit my job since preggie pa lang ako and thankfully i was able to do so..
don't have means of earning here at home but ill be trying some of the onlinejobs SP moms suggested hopefully i might stumble into something lucrative.haha!
so far i have no regrets, being with my son 24/7 is just totally priceless!now i can watch him grow before my very eyes unlike when i was still working, magugulat na lang ako sa mga developments/milestones niya kasi nga i don't have enough time for him..now my son has my full attention, he's my boss now :D
sobrang challenging maging mommy, at mas stressful compared s isang formal job but at the end of the day when your son smiles at you before he sleeps or reaches out to you in his sleep habang ikaw di makatulog kasi you want to watch him sleeping..its heaven..wouldn't trade it for the world..

to all of us SAHMs cheers!! ;)

mommy nuna,
ganon? di lang nila alam na sa totoo lang maraming ginagawa ang mga SAHM. naging ganyan sa ken dati ang mommy ko. sinasagot ko sha na at least ako mismo ang nagpapalaki sa anak ko at hindi lang katulong. sha kasi working her whole life kaya di sha maka-relate. isipin mo na lang na wala silang alam na ibang life kundi ang career or working life kaya sila ganon. basta ang importante naalagaan mo ng husto ang iyong sarili at family.  ;)
