whine

My biggest fear about quitting working and staying at home with my children is how BORING I would become. Not bored, but boring. I love my stay-at-home-mom friends. Really, I do. And I respect what they do for their families. But they are the most boring bunch of people I know.

I did a couple years as mostly SAHM and yes, I did find way too many boring moms. Who ALL they could talk about was the usual mommy angst "is it time to take away the pacifier?" "do I let him cry through nap time?" It really was enough to make me pull my hair out. At least the moms *I* encountered.

I now wonder if these days I could put the internet to better use and find moms who are more interested in adult talk.

You need to find better friends. Staying home with your children is rewarding and wonderful........you will not regret it.

Well said. I'm surprised this post didn't generate more controversy. I feel the same way but would never think of saying it out loud? Why? Because no one thinks they're the one who is boring. Especially doing something so "rewarding" and selfless.
