Speaking as one raised by a feminist... I enjoy my life--home with my youngun's, teaching them the 3 R's (and an awful lot of history...), trying to be a supportive wifey for the breadwinner. It nauseates me to hear people complain about their kids being home from school during the holidays. If your friends heard you complain about THEM that way, you wouldn't have any friends left! I hope my kids never think they have ruined my life by their very presence. Excuse me while I go hug my children!
