First World Problems of a SAHM

First World Problems Of A Stay At Home Mom

  • I woke up 2 hrs before the kids. I wasted quality sleep.
  • I’m out of caffeine.
  • The children expect to be fed at least 3 times a day.

  • I am running late for something, as usual.
  • I can’t find the DVR remote. How am I going to do anything if I don’t have SpongeBob on demand to occupy the children?
  • The baby took off her diaper in her crib at nap time. She had pooped.
  • Laundry

  • I just poured the kids’ cereal, only to discover that I’m out of milk.
  • I have to go grocery shopping…with the children.
  • Another toy is clogging the toilet, yet someone pooped in it anyway.
  • I woke up later than the toddlers. They found my craft drawer.
  • Why must I listen to the kids fight over which one gets which color cup?!
  • The baby is poopy. DAMN IT! I’m out of diapers.
  • The parents in McDonald’s play area keep trying to talk to me about their kids.

  • I forgot to lay out dinner.
  • Hubby didn’t take out the trash. It’s full and the trash can is by the road.
  • Someone colored on my couch.
  • My corkscrew is missing.
  • There is nothing interesting to read on the interwebz.

  • I have a stomach virus.
  • The children have a stomach virus.
  • I’m out of wine.
  • The kids finally learned to open the doors on their own.
  • Baby gates are no longer effective.

(These are not necessarily all mine. I compiled the list from other SAHMs, as well.)

Tell me yours and I might add them to the list!

*Disclaimer: I am very well aware that I did not create the “First World Problems” meme. Not claiming to, either. There are a lot of FWP of SAHM posts out there. Just clarifying.

    So funny. Then there’s the pet related ones….

    – The dog puked and I stepped in it… the kids thought it was funny.
    – The toddler got into the dog food again. A little kibble doesn’t hurt does it?!
    – Last night the baby slept through the night, unfortunately the dog got up every hour because it had diarrhea.

    Thanks for the laughs.

    Thank you, made me smile. 🙂

    -I’ve only just finished the breakfast washing up and they are asking what is for lunch!
    -Having after much cajoling, whinging and whining, have persuaded the youngest to do her homework only to discover she has left it at school.
    -We have a invisible child in the house who goes by the name Notme, he/she creates havoc, makes messes and causes endless squabbles. And I don’t know who let him/her in , it wasn’t me!

      I ask that question, literally, 3+ times a day. It’s ridiculous. How does one shoe end up under the bed and the other in the car?
