You said it Carrie! This is so me.
I like being a stay-at-home parent. It’s convenient, it lets me be extra-involved in my boys’ lives, and I think it’s important.

Housewives do chores all the time, serving the home by cleaning and organizing it. I suck at housewife-dom. I do it because somebody has to do it, and because I’m the logical choice by actually being on location most often, but I am no Martha, and I am showing no signs of becoming one. Marthas are born to their roles; I struggle daily with mine, and I struggle against it.
