As the product of a dual income household, I’ve always kind of thought of mother’s staying at home as a luxury for super-rich. My mom was also the main bread winner so the idea of women not working has always been strange to me. It was never easy and I appreciate the sacrifices both of my parents made for my brother and I growing up. They worked very hard for us and became excellent role models. None of it would have been possible if my father hadn’t stepped right up and taken on a fair half (if not more) of the domestic responsibilities. I don’t really understand why this is such a big deal…the person who’s at home, does the home stuff! That said, I’m having some major issues with my new role as hausfrau.
