Quick quiz: What makes you happier? Playing with your kids or taking a bubble bath?
Personally, it depends on the situation (such as, Did my kid just throw a fit and say she doesn’t WANT Mommy ANYmore or has she spent the day at the sitter’s being the sweetest angel on earth and I’ve missed her like crazy?)
Anywho, MomLogic came out with their “Happiness Poll” results, which I found kind of interesting. Bubble baths rated #1 in the happiness-making department, while kid time was #4. I guess the pollsters picked a bad day to survey moms.
Bummer that working moms say they’re less satisfied with their lives than stay-at-homers. Also, working moms are twice as likely to have affairs as SAHMs. WTF? Who has time for affairs?
Check out the results for yourself and tell us what you think.

Affairs?! No one but my husband would have me, I’m afraid. Not much demand for bitchy, tired, overworked mom with armpit scruff. See, I don’t have time to shave, much less cheat. Geesh.
Ha ha ha! Affairs! I would have to engage in #1 (bath) and #2 (working out) on a much more regular basis.
Seriously, I think its really telling that we all feel judged and inadequate. I work part-time so sometimes I feel like I get it from both sides. But I can’t be all things to all people, and I refuse to constantly feel like a victim, either of others or of the choices that I’ve made.
Bruce Lee once said that all activities are either “spending time” or “wasting time”. So its up to us to decide which are which, and cut out the time-wasters. Easier said than done!
I just love that she put WTF in the post…that was the first thing I thought when I read the stat. WTF is right maybe it should have be WWFT (with what f@@@ing time????).
