I can’t imagine a worse fate than being a stay-at-home housewife.
But my mom’s lot was no picnic, either.
As a full-time professional with three kids (and married to a workaholic), she was out the door at 8 and home at 6, with dinner to fix, not enough time for her kids and no time, ever, for herself.
And those were the good old days. Today, she’d have a BlackBerry so she could work 24/7.
