I so love this poem. I am one of them. When pressed, I would say that I was 'at home.' It was always interesting to see the reactions of people. Many of the older people, especially men, would almost beam to see there was still one woman who was home with the kids. And that was in the eighties. I can't imagine there are very many now. Thanks so much for this affirmation.


Nan, I know what you speak of! Once, when I was at the grocery store and my children were much younger, a gentleman started talking to me about Staying Home. He was so happy with our decision that he insisted that I bring the whole family to his BBQ Joint in a little town called Bethany, Louisiana.(down the road from us at the time) He wanted to meet my husband and to treat us to a free meal. Funny how strangers will sometimes react to your 'life decisions'. Glad he spoke up, that was some fine BBQ!
