Well, Let's Celebrate Today is your day.

Housewife Day

When : Always November 3rd

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.

Housewife is an old term. It hails back to the days when one income could support the family in a manner of comfort. It was also a time when women did not have equal rights. While these days are long gone, women views of working or staying at home, fall on both sides of the fence. The decision to be a "housewife", or stay at home mom, is still preferred by many. Unfortunately, income needs often necessitate going to work.

Today, we celebrate and thank all of the ladies who choose to stay home and tend to the house and family! 

How will I celebrate this special day? I will celebrate this day, by honoring my beloved wife, and thanking her for staying home for the family during the child rearing years. Without a doubt, our children grew up much better for it. And, I benefitted by the many sacrifices she made by staying home.

 I'm a SAHM AND a WAHM. I work from home caring for the disabled. Not a bad job! Somedays I think, "WOW! I get paid to do this!" and other days its like "They don't pay me nearly enough to do this!" LOL

Yes, I get you. I have a friend who babysits and so she stays home yet she says some days she doesn't get paid enough. I think you kind of have the best of both world's some days.
