So here’s the deal. Stacy has been a stay at home wife/mom for most of our marriage. I love it! I think it is awesome when I come home that my wife has taken care of our house, our family and me. I didn’t really intend on writing about the merits (and problems) associated with being a (or having a) stay at home mom. Nonetheless, twice this week I was asked about it so here goes.
The first person challenged me because she claimed that as a stay at home mom, she wasn’t contributing to the household. She didn’t feel that she was contributing because if she stayed home, there would be no paycheck for her to bring into the equation. The second person said she and her husband were both on board with the idea of her becoming a stay at home mom, but they didn’t see how it would be possible since she brings home 2/3 of the income and her job provides the family’s insurance.
I started writing my response, then realized that inflection, tone and facial expressions might be needed for you to really understand my thoughts on domestic duties and stay at home moms. I know, I know…I have a face for radio, but get past that and really consider my thoughts on the question of whether stay at home moms make sense in today’s society.
By the way, since this is my first video post at Humorous Homemaking, so I’d love to read your comments on this format. Do you like videos as a way for us to communicate with you?
