Do you think being a stay at home parent is harder than a 9-5 job?

I think being a stay at home parent is one if the hardest jobs there is out there! It's a 24/7 job, your day doesn't really have much of a routine (of course once your kids are of school age it probably gets easier), you must put yourself in the backburner for EVERYTHING, and you don't get to financially contribute to the household, which is a big disappointment. I'd take my old job back, working in cars, so fast! at least I would get to eat lunch everyday!
