yes, there was no cafemom back then to distract them from their daily duties, so their houses were probably less dusty, at least less dusty than mine!!!

Dang Armywifemomof3, You belittle stay-at-home moms. It sounds like you don't think we have any major responsibilities. But let me just say this. I don't know about what the moms in the 50's did, but I do know this; I work from home and get a check. I also school my kids. I do everything around the house except the trash. I pay the bills, run the errands, stitch torn clothes, cook all meals from scratch, train the dog, and still raise my kids 24/7. If anything, us stay-at-home moms today have a lot more to worry about when it comes to the safety of our kids and home. Ppl are crazier now and days and we are vulnerable to bad guys that may be clocking our schedule.

Yes, Yes, my mom was a SAHM,and yes it was 6 of us,everyday,my mom made 3 meals a day with dessert, she wash clothes on her hands and a wringer washer machine, my mom iron every piece clothes we put on, our home was never dirty,our windows were always shinning. And,yes my mother even paid bills, I think today,women want to be SAHM,but,they complain, I even heard women say, I am a SAHM,but, I don't cook,and I can't wait until my husband come home from work to get these kids,when,my DAD came home from work,my mother would have dinner ready,we would sit down as a family, my DAD would take turn asking each of us how was our day. Even, myself, I am disabled, but, I cook,clean,shop,pay bills, do laundry, I do everything my mom taught me,not June Cleaver. Oh, in our home ,my mothers voice was the most important voice. Thank you Mom for all you have done for me,and thank you for teaching me how to be a good mother and wife.
