The Commander of Our Household
The Commander of Our Household

Dear Dr. Laura:

During our courtship, my husband and I decided I would stay home if we had children while he worked to provide for us.  I've now been a stay-at-home mom for eleven years, and for the last two years, we've homeschooled our two kidlets.  

We recently attended a fancy awards dinner with lots of Washington, DC "elites."  My date, of course, was my husband, who is a US Army Officer.  I was engaged in small talk with the woman seated next to me at the dinner when she asked: "So, are you JUST a wife, or do you do something?"  Just as I was about to make a snarky reply, my husband jumped in and said "She's not just a wife.  She's the commander of our household.  She's an educator, chef, taxi driver, nurse for skinned knees, and budget analyst.  I could NEVER do what I do without her support!"

Needless to say, the woman was incredulous.  My husband is a quiet man, but it's amazing to know that in the heat of "battle," he has my back.  Thank you for what you do, and for adding to my arsenal when I am out there alone.


Remember, all of you can send me "letters" too - by email!  Just sign into (or sign up for) the Dr. Laura Family - it's free - and tell us of your experiences.
