When I was the stay at home mom of 3 kids under 4, I spent all day making sure my kids tummies were filled, their dishes were washed (we didnt have a dishwasher), their clothes smelled fresh, their home was cleank safe and their toys were picked up, , their faces and bottoms were wiped, and their hearts were merry. I couldn’t wait till they took naps so I could have a downtime. My then-husband would come home and look at the pile of unfolded laundry on the bed and say, “What did you do all day?” I wish I would have said, “Sit down in your tidy house, eat your homemade dinner, and play with your well cared for kids.. I can’t tell you exactly all that I did, but I know it is an awful lot! because I am now exhausted” Motherhood is a non-ending job. I appreciate the way this man appreciates his wife and the mother of his kids.
This is a fabulous post, written by Matt Walsh on October 9, 2013. Kudos to him for putting his wife and all ‘Stay-At-Home’ Mom’s on a pedestal. What a great post! Don’t just read it here, check out his site and see what he’s up to at > The Matt Walsh Blog.
“You’re A Stay-At-Home Mom? WHAT DO YOU DO ALL DAY?”
It’s happened twice in a week, and they were both women. Anyone ought to have more class than this, but women — especially women — should damn well know better.

Thanks for sharing this awesome link! I’ve noticed that the most of the offspring of stay at home moms are more secure and better behaved than the others. I say this because of the volunteering I’ve done with the activities my kids have been in over the years has brought me into much contact with both; fruit speaks volumes!

I love the way he shows his appreciation for his wife! I wholeheartedly agree, most of the time the children have a more stablle environment and more mom attention with a stay at home mom. Being a stay at home mom is what I consider to be the second most difficult and unappreciated job on the planet, and I second that only to being a single mom who is stuck working several jobs with little family support. I have been in both positions, at home with my kids till they were teenagers. Unfortunately, while I was working multiple jobs it left little quality time and energy for my teenagee kids.
