A short article about my late mother and other women homemakers

I have no problem with women who work. But I do respect women who are homemakers more because that was what my mother did. Dad worked and Mom was in charge of taking care of the budget. I moved to my house in February of 1977 at the age of five. If Dad had been in charge of taking care of the budget, we might have lost my house by 1980.

Mom was going to get a part time job, and Dad would've had to look after my older brother and I while she worked. Dad told Mom "They'll be completely different boys. You won't even know them". Mom didn't like the sound of that at all. She figured that Dad might have been mean to my brother and I, and he probably would have. Because of this, Mom didn't take the job.

Feminists will probably be offended by this article but I don't care. There's nothing wrong with women who are homemakers. There's also nothing wrong with women who work. But if you're a woman homemaker and people are hounding you to get a job, pay no attention to them. If being a homemaker makes you happy, tell them to mind their own damn business.
