Yes, I call myself a housewife. I no longer consider myself a stay at home mom since that is no longer the reason I am home all day. My husband and I have 4 children and they are all over the age of 12. So, does that make me a stay at home mom? In my mind, no, it does not. My children are all either working, away at college with their wife, or in public school during the day. I am home to take care of the house.
My husband and I have been married of almost 22 years and were high school sweethearts. We take time every so often for ourselves as this is extremely important to the two of us as our children are growing older and moving out of the house.
Life here in our house is always busy, but I do have time where the house is all quiet and I am out of books to read and the cleaning is done, and the TV programming isn't much, and that's when I am bored.
