I’m a few weeks from having my first child, and I just finished my last day of work. When my husband and I got home, he wrapped me in a tight hug, thanked me for working so hard at my job all this time, and then said “Now I have my housewife again!” He kept it up for the rest of the evening, looking at me with a huge smile and telling me how wonderful it will be to have me at home. I’ve been so excited about quitting my job and being able to stay home with our new baby that I didn’t realize how much my husband looked forward to it as well.
I know some women might not appreciate hearing their husbands say things like “My wonderful homemaker” or “Now I don’t have to share you,” but I couldn’t be happier. I’ve always known I would grow up, get married, and be a stay-at-home mom, and I was so fortunate to find a man whose dream complemented mine. I know I chose wisely and now I’m looking forward to putting even more effort into treating kindly, because that is what my provider and protector, my knight in shining armor, deserves.
Thanks for standing up for those of us who still want this life, and for continuing to convert those who don’t realize they want it.
I’m Proud To Be A Wonderful Homemaker
