Stay at home Mom
Met a stay-at-home Mom today, wife of an equivalent of mine. Plenty has been blogged about how men with a stay at home wife can succeed much easier than women in a similar situation, because they don't have the added burden of the domestics... and I've always agreed. In our conversation, I couldn't help thinking the whole time, "You know, I do both yours and your husband's jobs on my own". I hope she didn't hear me screaming inside while I had a smile plastered on my face. Must remember never to drink around her. Never, ever.
