More Best of 2008

I absolutely have the term SAHM!

I don’t know why it bothers me so. I just find it an icky term and I have NEVER used it! I just twitch when I see it used by people. lol It’s the little things right?

~warning this post is written at 5:30 am, I am not accountable for words this early~ lol

Yes, I may “stay at home” and I am a “mom”. But I find it ummm maybe “lessening” my duties while at home. I am at a loss to describe what I am trying to say.

For example, these are the duties I have being just a plain “mom” who stays at home:

*CEO ~this is what I personally call myself. CEO of my family and I will write that in Job Description when I fill out paper work or get asked my occupation.~


*Amateur Chef



*Sex Toy ~Remember I am married.~ :)


*Art Director

*Police Officer ~Did you take the toy from your sister?? Were you just in the kitchen?? Show me your hands??~

*Laundry Attendant

*Maintenance Manager of the house

*Taxi Driver of “Mom’s Jag”


*Computer Geek ~so I can blog about crazy things I think about early in the morning or google, “strange smells coming from shower drain” for my Janitor position.~

Okay you get my drift.

I started calling myself CEO of my family long ago. It is fitting. I go from being a drug store manager to managing things around the house. I just try to imagine the kids as my employees. lol They have jobs to do just like I do. DELEGATE DELEGATE! lol

I just did a search to find out how much a CEO of the family should be earning a year by their duties. Annual PayCheck Value from 2006: $134,121.

So, go ahead and call yourself SAHM’s if you want, don’t let me stop you. I just wanted to give you something to think about. But for me I will always be:

Michelle, CEO of my Family.
(Don’t go stealing my line either. Make up your own title. lol)

PS. My husband said since I am CEO he is CFO. Chief Financial Officer. As well as Sex Toy. LOL

I've never really liked that term either. I just call myself a mom. Good enough for me.

I never liked the term either. I never could figure out why-- it just didn't feel right. Work at home mom is closer, because I work my ass off all day. BAHAHAHAHAHAHA
