I'm Proud Of My Job Title

Dr. Laura:

Thank you for your amazing book, "In Praise of Stay-at-Home Moms."  Since becoming a stay-at-home mom two years ago, this is the first time another person (not including my very supportive husband) has made me feel powerful in my choice to stay at home and raise my kids.

Up until now, I've always felt in "defense mode" when I tell people I stay at home - and for good reason!  I've gotten many negative, passive-aggressive comments about it, with people telling me they could never do that because they would feel diminished and demeaned by doing so.  I always felt like I had to explain to others that I actually work harder than I did when I was a working mom.  

For the first time, thanks to you, I feel proud of my job title as "Stay-at-Home-Mom," and I want to shout to the universe that it is the best job in the world.  Choosing a husband who is willing to work even harder to support his family has certainly helped too.  Being a stay-at-home mom makes me feel powerful, and I'm happy to say that out loud to whoever will listen!
