Sorry to be vague. I don't mean jealous of my kids. I mean jealous of my lifestyle. Not everyone wants to put on a rat suit and run in a race. Many friends of mine who wouldn't dare give up their careers, hate the pace, and numbing routine of their lives.
NOt likeley that she would be jealous of your lifestyle either or else she would choose that lifestyle herself..
As for hating the numbing routine of their lives the same could be said for motherhood. I am career orientated and Personally I could not think of anything more mind numbing than being a parent - how repetitious and boring...but that is just me.
My job is very rewarding and I get to travel to alot of places and meet interesting people that I would not get the chance to do if I was a stay at home mum. I know which one I would perfer so I really dont think your friend is jealous of your lifestyle <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />
