Great article! She really put in perspective, that when I take the time to do all these things myself, someone DOES notice and care.
I've never felt less than because I SAH, it's good to see that old fashioned values are again returning to new mode. I lived with my grandparents as a kid, and all this stuff was just what was done in their house (both were born in the depression) Homemade clothes, food growing, eating our own chickens...they are now quite wealthy, but didn't start that way, and being self sufficient and frugal is WHY they nurture the nest AND have a nest egg
I am sure if the shi* hit the proverbial fan tomorrow, we would get along quite well. I think knowing how to make do, use up, or wear out is a lost art. When my DH rips a pair of pants or a shirt, I get out the old sewing machine and remake it into a pair of kid pants or back in the day, it would have been a cloth diaper
This is what I *always* wanted to do, be a homemaker. I'm so happy to see that I'm not the only one. Begone the days when SAH was for the meek and mild, welcome to where SAH can be WILD
