Some of my family when we got together for our reunion in 08
I love Trivia and one of my favorite things to do is read several different trivia sights on line. One of them said that TODAY IS HOUSEWIFE DAY.
Housewife Day recognizes the importance of stay at home wives and moms. Also referred to as 'Retro' Housewife Day. These wonderful, caring creatures, build and enrich strong family environments. They help to instill family values and good character
Family celebrations are wonderful things
I was blessed to be just that, a stay at home mom, for about 12 wonderful years when my family came along. I loved it all. Of course there were days that when my husband came in the door at night, I would walk out the door and say – I’ll see you in 15 minutes. Spending days with 7 young ones that were under the age of 10 sometimes made me want just 15 minutes of peace and quiet so I’d go for a walk around the block and come back refreshed and ready to carry on.
The entire bunch of us at our reunion
I know that there are not many housewives’ now a days. There are still wives that care for their families and their homes but they also have a job to go out to. Careers are split down the middle in a lot of cases.
I went back to work when the youngest was four and the oldest 13 so I do know what it is like to do both. Of course I preferred the stay at home job but sometimes we just don’t always have a choice.
I do count those 12 years as blessings.
