    So what's up with all the stay-at-home moms. God... my husband would never allow it! Not that we have kids or anything, but he wouldn't be happy if I stayed home nor would he be rewarding me with bags. Sorry, not trying to be offensive or anything... actually, I think you ladies are pretty lucky.

    That's okay... I guess we are lucky and also, all men are different too... my hubby prefers me to just stay home but doesn't mind if I want to go back to work... but I don't have to that's what he's saying. And besides childcare here in Australia's pretty expensive, so the money I'd probably be earning will just go straight to childcare if I put my little banana there. Plus, I'd rather take care of my baby than leave him with strangers...

    so yea we are pretty lucky to be home and get rewarded

    Yes, bRs, they are lucky--but like juicyholicmum pointed out, sometimes it costs more to put the children into daycare than what the mom would earn at work.

    My friend is lucky enough to have a great PDO (parents day out) program at two churches that make her childcare virtually free. However, my cousin has to leave her baby at day care and it's almost $1500per month! Plus, they don't watch the kid when it is sick or has a rash (even diaper rash) so she still has to take off work and it puts strain on her career.

    I wouldn't personally want to stay home, but that's because I know I could afford the childcare and my husband is self employed so he could do the whole stay home with the sick child thing easier than I could.

    I think it's great, though, when the husband isn't upset with it and the mom can enjoy the child.

    ^^^ Yeah, I suppose. My husband is just really against me ever staying home. I think he's afraid I'll turn out like my mom. Paranoid and thinking everyone is out to get her. LOL! No... seriously, it's true. Also his brother's wife stays home despite the fact that they have free daycare (her parents) and that they are hurting for money right now. What bothers him the most though is that she is completely engrossed in her daughter. I mean, we're talking to the point where she never spends time with her own husband. She eats dinner with her daughter before her husband even gets home from work (which isn't that late) and then goes to bed at 8:30 every night and sleeps with her daughter. Something is wrong here... hehe, and I'm sure she's not getting "rewarded" with handbags.

    That's OK..I actually paid for my bags when I was working and sold one of my bags to get my latest one. I went back to work when my son was 14 months. I didn't want to put him in daycare until he was 12 months. I only stopped work in Jan to have my daughter. And I'll probably go back to work again when my daughter's one. Point is, it's my choice. My husband is quite happy to pay for the bags, so I suppose I am quite lucky, but I would really rather pay for them myself.

    ^^^ Oh, and I hope this didn't sound the wrong way (what I said earlier, I mean). Its not like I want to stay home anyway, LOL! I would much rather be working and have my own money as well. Its not like my husband is forcing me... but I do know he would be unhappy with me if I wasn't working too.

    I think if I ever got pregnat and had a baby, I would move back to the town where I went to college in Arkansas and then apply for an emergency teachers license and teach 4 or 5th grade. That way, I would have summers off and would be home when the kids were home and still have a job that had good healthcare.

    I love what I do now, but I work sometimes 50-60 hours per week, so it's hectic and they wouldnt let me slow down for kids.

    I just skimmed all this and didn't read much of it. But I love the title of the thread. LOL.. I just got into a HUGE fight with my BF last night. If he was in front of me.. I probably would of punched him. I felt like he fashion insulted me? Is that stupid?

    I found out from you lovely ladies that balenciaga sold online.. and I was talking to him. I was like I really want to get one... my bday is coming up I deserve something. He goes "Wait to see if MK brings out anything, you like his handbags."

    Yes I do love MK.. his bags and shoes are fabulous esp. if you love Patent leather.. but what I felt he was really saying in bootleg fashion talk was.. "Balenciaga is too expensive, MK is cheaper.. wait to see what he comes out with." I blew up! I wasn't asking him to buy it for me. I never tell him how much money I have. I don't feel it's his buisness.. for him to know my finances? I make money and I don't depend on him... isn't that a good thing? Is that wrong?Maybe I'm wrong because he really doesn't know how much money I have... and maybe he thought I didn't have much at all... but still? He was expecting me to take a Made in China bag over a Made in Italy bag? Not trying to sound snotty.. I do have made in China bags... but you can't compare MK and Balenciaga!! I don't own anything Balenciaga... and actually I've sold mostly all my purse collection.. and he tells me to get a MK?

    Maybe I'm totally wrong to get so mad at him because he really doesn't know what I have in my bank. He has no clue what comes in.. but I don't know. Am I wrong? I just felt I've only been going out with him almost 10 months and he is telling me what to buy? It's my money shouldn't I do what I want with it??

    Am I just being a witch?

    Marissa - Maybe, and this is a long shot, but maybe he said this to you because he has already bought you something for your birthday. Just a thought.

    idk...

    Perhaps what he heard was "Will you buy me a Balenciaga for my birthday" and what he was saying was "I really want to buy you something special, but I can only afford an MK" and then, when you blew up he was dumbfounded and embarrassed...and so he didn't clarify himself.

    Unless he specifically said "I do not think YOU can afford Balenciaga" I wouldn't get too upset. I think he was just subtly voicing his budget ... without coming out and saying "I CANNOT afford Balenciaga."

    But that's the thing.. I wasn't asking him to buy it for me and I told him that. I kinda blew up.. lol.. I was like "You ******** I wasn't asking for you to buy it.. I have my own money." Ya I was really mean.. but I hate men when they do that. My last BF constantly told me I didn't deserve designer stuff because I was too young? If I'm paying for it.. who is to tell me if I deserve it or not? Only gay men know the importance of fashion.

    And I always tell him not to buy me anything. I'm not a feminist at all.. I just feel I make my own money and I don't need a guy to buy me stuff. Maybe I'm just like that because of my Mother. My Mother didn't really have a father.. he was an alcoholic and abused her and her sisters constantly.. she literally hates him. And ever since I was little she always tld me depend on a man for NOTHING.

    I wasn't asking him to buy me one that's the thing. His Mother would KILL HIM if he bought me ANYTHING remotely nice. He's Jewish... I'm Catholic.. enough said. I told him not to buy me anything for my bday. His family is all about saving money, I like to save but I do not need a ton of money in the bank just sitting there doing nothing like his family does. I save money for comfort just in case something bad happens with this sprialing economy. Like I did not come from a rich family AT ALL and I still live at home. I have money set aside just incase I have to jump in and pay everything for my parents. I live in Florida.. yes the economy is bad EVERYWHERE but in FL there are so many foreclosures everyday... people are constantly getting put on the streets.. so many people are losing their jobs.. it's sad. You don't even see people driving here anymore.. it's not looking too much like a busy city anymore. I don't know if something bad is gonna happen and my parents can't work. My Mom has a bad heart.. my dad just got diagnosed with Agent Orange. I'm not trying to get the pity party.. but he knows what I'm going through and it's like don't buy anything. SAVE SAVE SAVE. He always does crap like that.. I hate it. I felt I deserved to buy myself a bag.. because I literally have 12 handbags left out of my collection. I sold SOOO many and probably will sell more. He makes me so angry... lol.
