Mothers Are Not Society's Free Source of Labor: Saying "No" to the Expected Favor

If you want to be respected by others the great thing is to respect yourself. Only by that, only by self-respect will you compel others to respect you. ~Fyodor DostoyevskyI almost broke out into the Hallelujah Chorus this morning. I would have, if I wasn't tone-deaf and didn't want to torture anyone who might be in hearing radius of the wailing that masquerades as my singing voice. So I had to be content with writing a blog post instead.Yesterday, the…See More

Why I'll Never Be Interviewed on Oprah

I think I live a pretty decent life. However, compared to the lives of the people on Oprah, it's pretty mundane. Which makes me think maybe I'm doing something wrong or missing out on something. Here's why I don't think Oprah would ever have me on her show:Compared to the people on Oprah's show, I'm boring. I'm not a desperate housewife. I do not owe 300K in credit card debt. I have…See More

Give Me Some Respect!

Mothers are not appreciated for being professional, intelligent, and talented women. Their economic value is dismissed; their lives are viewed as a "luxury;" their needs are considered secondary to those of their families and volunteer groups; and they are pushed to exhaustion from unreasonable expectations and constant, mundane tasks. Mothers work without pay, are on-call around…See More

Rethinking Traditions to Save the Pocketbook

I'm in sticker shock...over Christmas cards.It isn't that Christmas cards in and of themselves are necessarily expensive. I was pleased to get forty of them on-sale at my local grocery store, when I found myself stuck at the auto mechanic's shop much longer than anticipated and walked to the grocery store for something to do. I had the cards signed and addressed just before my car was…See More

I am a sassy, outspoken, unusual, and slightly neurotic woman, wife, and mother of three daughters. I take my work as a family manager seriously without allowing the role of wife and mother to become all-encompassing; enjoying life is not selfish, but showing myself the same respect I show my husband, children, and friends. I am a home birthing & home schooling libertarian who believes you can be both devoted to simple living while occasionally enjoying the finer things in life.
