Understand that my W is a SAHM. It is work for her 24/7. If it was not for what my W does daily I would not be able to do what I do daily. What my W does is very important. I appreciate the hell out of her and what she does.
Yeah, my ex wife used to throw that whole "24/7" thing out there, and I actually bought into it until I really stopped and thought about it.
First off, it was her decision to stay home. She didn't want to work outside the home, so as much as her staying home benefited the family, she would not have been able to do what she chose to do if it wasn't for what I did daily.
Second, having children, if she got to claim 24/7, then so did I. There was never any "getting to come home from work" for me. I just got to put on a different hat when I got there. I ran the kids around to their activities, I got up in the middle of the night when they were sick. When we were both home at the same time, I was just as involved in the day to day household functions as she was.
For sure, there are a lot of uninvolved husbands with stay at home wives, but I know I am not some outlier either, and involved husbands and fathers who have stay at home wives deserve just as much appreciation.
