I just had to add something Rachel said to me today. We were talking about responses to what we do and she said, "I really like boggling them by proudly and boldly saying, "I'm a mother. I mother." I have found that gets some really cool reactions....even from the most sour people."
I think that's an awesome response and I can see how it would change people's reaction from the typical response to "stay-at-home mom" to a little thoughtfulness and remembering just what moms DO.
I wonder if when we respond that we are "stay-at-home" moms, if we don't sound apologetic while a response of "I'm a mother. I mother." might be more hopeful and positive?
