I was reading an article recently about the 1950s housewife…and to my surprise we have a lot in common!!!

For instance, I get dressed first thing in the morning. For the day. Eye liner, mascara, hair–I’m a minimalist💁🏾. It’s just easier for me to be dressed before I get my kids up and ready. I like to be dressed and cute when I’m at the bus stop or the drop off line. And I’m more productive when I’m up and ready.
I do all the housework, cooking, laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning. When we decided to stay at home, we sat down and talked about our individual responsibilities, mine were defined as being “The Home Manager”. I’ve accepted, perfected it and it’s what works for our family.
I do like the fact that my husband comes home to a clean house and a hot meal. So by the time he’s walking through the door candles are lit, our home is picked up, the food is cooking and more than likely our home smells like apple cinnamon. It’s my goal to have a warm, welcoming home😊
Once my children love on their daddy as soon as he walks through the door I do ask them to give him a few uninterrupted minutes so that he can change clothes and unwind.
I’m giving my Love Biscuit hugs and kisses as soon he’s in my sight😘 I appreciate him and most days I miss him because of long work hours.
As much of a shock as it is for me to be a stay at home wife and mom, I love it and I see the value in it. My family and home are well taken care of and that’s my goal…so with that being said ‘big ups’to my fellow Throw Back wives who are making it look good and embracing this season of life!!!
