Glad to know there are other fams out there like ours! It's encouraging. It's also refreshing to hear from SAHM who don't necessarily think all moms should be SAHMs.

Basically no difference. I'm just not a big fan of the baggage that usually comes along with the word (especially in my part of the world).
|I don't understand why the emphasis is on 'equal'.
Actually I've heard the couple who started esp talk about this before and for them, it's not about keeping score, it has more to do with making sure that everyones needs in the household are met. It's about making sure that the kids get to hang with dad just as much as they do with mom. It's about making sure that both mom and dad can pursue dreams they might have outside the home (not that everyone necessarily does). The "keeping score" mentality is missing the point. Also, I do think it would be ideal if both parents were able to work part time. Unfortunately our society isn't set up this way yet. In order to get decent pay, benefits, vacation time, etc, you must have a full time job. This is one of the things those involved with esp are working toward--making it possible for esp to work in any household.
