Then we agree. I like my role as wife and mother. It's a role I chose. And according to my hubby and kids...I'm good at it.
Yeah, it looks like we're on the same page, I misunderstood you, my apologies.
Raising kids is arguably the most important work we do (so Mom told us, rightly, as kids), so IMO, a good stay at home mom deserves super respect.
Although I am comfortable with traditional gender roles, and even think they are in our DNA to some extent, I don't necessarily mind when they are crossed. For instance, my mother was an excellent shot with rifle or shotgun, and adored fishing.
