Maybe as an aspiring English professor you want to write that last sentence again? Julie, you are hilarious without even trying!!


I was an at home mom, with side business, and homeschooling, for 18 years just about. As my kids approached college age, I went back to school to fulfill my dream of becoming an accountant. :) I feel blessed to have had the chance to live both lives.


My mother was always adamant about NOT wanting to be called a housewife. (She was married to my father, thank you very much, not the house.) She, instead, proudly calls herself a homemaker! But, yes, no matter what you call it, there's certainly nothing wrong with it! (grin)


I think the brand of feminism which is being referred to must come full circle in order for us to find some sort of balance. As long as women don't feel pressured to stay at home because society deems them incapable of anything else - fine. As long as men have the opporunity to be homemaker or househusband without any resentment from their spouse - that is also fine.


I too am a housewife. And bookkeeper/office manager for my husband's business. And I have a yarn business. And I have a regular column in the local paper.

But when people ask me what I "do," I still say I'm a stay-at-home mom.

Is that a problem?

(BTW: Cleaning service. Worth it?)
