  • LOL I think whoever wrote it came out of the 1950's or is a man. First of all, I do stay home and I have 5 kids so sometimes I will admit I might not make it into make up, or even anything nice to wear because I am knee high in cleaning, a sick child, or who knows what else since everyday just cant be "planned". My house is usually clean, but some days DH might come home and step over a play station remote, but you know? Hes good with it. I do cook almost every night because its cheaper, and I try and make things everyone liked because Im a mom and its how we roll. Some nights, its KFC. As for being mindful, well my husband knows its a two way street. I have bad days and work just as hard as he does at work.
    Whoever thinks being a sahm is a walk in the park has never been one.

  • Lol,

    I was a housewife when I was younger, he always came home to a hot dinner, clothes cleaned, house tidy and me looking good.

    He gave me the paycheck but he was always on the hunt at night for the next woman. I would do it again except for the man being a cheater..... The guy I am with now, I would love to take care of.... Just my opinion and yes I would fit in some tv time...

  • Their is no such thing as a good house wife. If your DH is satisfied with you. That is all that matters.

  • I didn't marry a house. I have no interest in being a good housewife.

  • Wow....There are a few things that I do not agree with...for to EVERYTHING. My husband is a grown man and he can take care of himself. I do keep a clean home, dinner either on the table or almost done when he gets home from work, both myself and child are dressed and taken care of but I do not do EVERYTHING for him.
