Yes, but since I am a SAHM, if I wasn't the one doing the washing, cleaning, cooking, childcare, homeschooling, what would I be doing? I agree with a lot of the housework articlle (the only one I read). I think my dh's job is very stressful, and he is starting up his own co. He has to come and go at all hours, very unpredictable schedule, and to top it off always worry abt $, bc we don't make that much. When he comes home, I enjoy having a nice hot meal waiting for him and a clean house. I would not expect him to cook dinner or wash his own laundry, just as he doesn't expect me to go run a load of cars from the auction to FL!
Doing these things and doing them well makes me feel really good abt myself, my role as a mother, and a wife. I try to approach housework,ect with a servants heart. It does make ME happy. Ok so I am very old fashioned, but I thank GOD daily thast I do not have to wake up at 6 am, drag dd out to daycare, & work 8 hrs.
I don't feel it makes me any less of a person, it makes me feel good abt myself to be able to take care of my family. I also think it is avery good role model for dd, to see mothering as such an important goal in life. I hope she sees how much I love her, to enjoy doing these things for her, and dh.
JMO! Flame away if you need to.
