I have nothing against long term housewifes/SAHMs, I was one for a couple of years and it was wonderful, and really really hard work!
However, I am very much back in the work force, currently working as a COO. Here lies the issue - everybody, my husband included, forgets that I even work, let alone that I am the major breadwinner of our family (earn more than double my husbands salary). I do this from home with my 2 and 1 year old. Yes, I'm very busy. My husband will come home and I haven't loaded the dishwasher and will ask "haven't you done any work today?" my MIL asked why my son goes to nursery twice a week when I'm at home anyway and I constantly get calls from family asking if I can quickly run errends for them as I'm "home anyway".
How on earth can I make this stop? I don't want to be rude to anyone but I feel like I'm doing it all and everyone is thinking that I'm doing nothing at all and it has got to the point where my head may soon explode if one more person asks "what do you even do all day?"
I'm proud of how hard I work and how well I balance everything and it would be nice to have just a little recognition.
