I just read a great quote in my new favorite Magazine called Mary Jane's Farm and I just had to share it...
Whenever I get one of those questionaires and they ask what is your profession, I always put down 'housewife'. It's an admirable profession; why apologize for it? You aren't stupid because you're a housewife. When you're stirring the jam, you can read Shakespeare.
I am proud to be a housewife. And prouder still that I have a husband willing to support my profession.
