We have a stay-at-home Papa and grandparents. if you could call running a small veggie-livestock farm "staying home". :) I work part-time off-farm.
My 6yo DD said something that made us all laugh but it was very well thought out.
(for the record, I have worked for a frat house as a cook, at a bakery, as a waitress, and now finally as an administrative assistant for the university. my girls went to work with me a lot while a frat cook and they always have known what I do. Mama "going to work" is a very solid concept, not going off into the ether like my dad's going to work was for me...)
She and Papa drove pask the frozen-yogurt shop and for whatever reason had made the deal that if she was good, they'd get a treat there on the way home. My daughter declared that when she grew up, she wanted to work at the ice-cream shop.
BUT she would have to wait until she was married to work at the ice-cream shop because she had to have a husband to watch her kids and farm all day....
At least she understands how the world works! haha!
My kids: We always tell them they can do whatever they want to do. whether it's farm, stay at home with their kids, work designing space rockets, whatever. I'm sure they'll find whatever works best for their family if/when they get married and have kids.
My family was the typical dad=breadwinner, mom=stay at home even though both were college-educated. for them that's what they wanted to do. My mother always made it clear we could do anything. I always knew I'd be a mom but being the Stay-at-home and homemaking so far REALLY hasn't been my thing. i was the main parent while we were in college and my hubby still did most of he housework... :)
