I have a secret…

This May, I will be married for 4 years. My daughter will be turning 3 this coming November. I am a wife and a mother and I think I am doing a pretty good job of it…

BUT I have a secret…I HATE to cook!!! Yes, you read that right. I hate to cook. I am not one of those people that hates it and still does it. I rarely if ever cook and something from scratch…never. If I do cook it is something that is either warmed up, stuck in the oven or comes out of a box/bag.

Now, just because I don’t cook doesn’t mean my house is not clean, organized and well kept. I still do all the other things a wife and mother should do I just don’t do that part. When my husband is home he does most of the cooking. I help him when we lets me. I tried to help my husband once by cutting up some tomatoes and onions…he told me I did not cut them up properly. I was supposed to dice them and I chopped them or something like that, whatever!

When meeting a couple women from my Mom’s group, I may have mentioned that I did not do the cooking in my house and I was met with some very weird responses:
So what do you eat?
How are you still married?

Hmmm, maybe I shouldn’t have mentioned that little tid bit. But I seriously did not think that just because I do not cook that other women would look down on me for it.

What do you think? Should I just suck it up and do it anyway? Or is it okay that I don’t want to cook?

    Its ok that you don't cook! Not everyone likes to!! Its good that your husband does like to cook! I have some friends that are this very same way. She's a nurse, and hates cooking .. but her husband is a phenomenal cook! It works for them!! There's nothing wrong with it in my opinion!

    Me personally I LOVE to cook!! I try new recipes all the time!! Make things from scratch all the time!

    Emily – Sometimes I envy people who love to cook but then I get over it…LOL. It is so awesome that you can create dishes from scratch, I wouldn't even know how to begin!
