    I am ~Mrs. J~ and I have been a SAHM/W for 22 almost 23 years. I have four children (21, 19, 17, & 15 yo) and I homeschool one of them currently and have homeschooled all of them at various times.

    I LOVE this blog and I am so happy to follow it on Pinterest although I don’t have Facebook.

    Hi, I’m Tosha. I have been searching for some time for a community such as this one. So far, it has been a blessing, and I look forward to visiting the site each day. I have been a SAHW and SAHM until my son entered preschool. I then entered back into Corporate America for a while. Now my hubby and I are empty nesters and I have been a SAHW for a little over 8 years now and I love it! Our son will be turning 22 next month and graduated college this past May and working on his next degree. I wish you all a blessed and safe weekend and looking forward to connecting more. : )

    Hello! I’m Andrea and I’m the wife of Mr. E and mom to 4 kids: 23, 15, 8 and 2. The two younger ones l live with us full time. I was a SAHM/W for a short time with each of them but always sent back to work. I recently came home to raise our two little ones. We are a Christian family so I believe my place is in the home. And I absolutely love the simplicity of life that existed in the 50s. So between those two things, I believe I’ve found my calling!!

    I am Mrs. M. I have two children 8 & 19 months. My husband is a U.S. Marine. We are currently in NW Arkansas on recruiting duty. When I found this blog I was struggling with my decision to stay home. I would stammer when others asked when I would be returning to work. I would get embarrassed when asked if I was in school. I wanted to be a housewife. I wanted to be the best housewife I could be but where do I get advice, help, encouragement? I kept googling housewife and snarky memes or sarcastic photos would pop up. Finally I found this blog and I read every single post in one sitting. I did the exercise of why I want to be a housewife. And the answer was simply I love it. I started taking stock of my clothing, my hair, my make up. How does my husband see me? I started buying up cute 1950ish outfits, using bandanas in my hair putting eyeliner on to clean. It is like my uniform or my super hero outfit. I started getting so much more done. I felt good about my home. My husband loves the new attitude and look. This blog was exactly what I needed and I read it daily.

      Hey Alyssa,
      I know what you mean about other people’s reaction to being a stay-at-home. My husband and I do not have children yet and I have been asked so many times about school, work, and kids by people who just do not understand the value I bring to our home by being a SAHW. My MIL is always trying to get me to go to work, but her mom always asks me if I have learned m home-lies yet… such as crocheting and knitting. They are silly, but I am teaching myself to darn and hand-sew this month.

    Hello all. I’m a 31 year old housewife and mother to 5 children. I’m very glad to have found this blog and other like minded women. Although my church teaches the value of the family structure as God intended, I’ve yet to meet other women who agree. As such I’d been missing that sense of community, and it’s been a tough road. In fact it was looking for advice that didn’t include femenist ideals that I found this wonderful blog. Thank you for starting it, and please do keep it up!

      Hello
      My church is also very big on biblical family values, which I would have thought to be a great source of support, but even there I find that often women do not encourage being a stay-at-home, especially without children which is unfortunately my current situation. That is why I am so excited about this blog! I love the opportunity to engage with like-minded women 🙂

    Hi I am karen. I am a sahm/w and have been since my son was born 5 years ago. I do run a small business from home just to cover treats like a holiday once a year and some treats but this blog has been a lifesaver. To know that in a world where gender roles have been completely lost it is great to celebrate a woman’s primary role in a relationship. Hardest thing I found was surrendering complete control to husband but since I have done that I have found a new freedom

    Would anyone be interested in a FB group? Just to celebrate little victories ‘I got the kitchen cabinets organized and all my tomatoes put up today!’ And maybe advice, ‘how can I get this stubborn stain oiut of my favorite blouse?’ And even pictures! Any cute 1950’s outfit you wear or really like. I am willing to start it if people are actually interested.

    Hi I’m 45 yrs old and have two amazing kids ages 24 and 15 1/2 (have to put that half in lol) and I have been a SAHM for 18 yrs when I met and married my beautiful,loving,husband. I have been practicing the 50s housewife and how they live for a few years now and it’s so hard to be consistent,but I’m managing and now it had been like second nature to me. But not going to lie sometimes I do nothing and get In that lazy mode. But it bites me at the end. I’m so glad there is other housewives out there and I am not alone

    Hello! I’m kaelyn and I’m 26 I’m a sahm to 18 month old twin daughters. My husband works full time so I can stay home with my girls. I love being able to stay home, it can definitely be stressful at times with two toddlers running around but I love being able to watch them grow, and have them be with me 24/7. I found this blog awhile back looking up how a 1950s housewife cleaned her home. I absolutely love this blog because I learn so much, and it helps me be a better housewife! Thank you!! I’m happy there’s others like me out there 🙂

    My name is Mary, I’m 29 and a SAHM of 3 kids, ages 3, 1 1/2, and 3 months. Keeping a neat and ordered home with 3 little ones is a challenge but I try to just do the best I can. I’m still trying to find a schedule and routine that maximizes my efforts, every time I found one another kid came and threw it off haha. I was born and raised in the south where traditional gender roles are still commen, and that’s the way I like it. I believe it’s my job as a woman to take care of my kids, my fiancé and my home. He works long hard hours and I try to take care if every need before he even asks.

    I am Mrsbuzz and have been a SAHM since my oldest who is turning 20 was born. I just found this community and couldn’t be more excited! I have found it hard to find like minded women, especially since I am turning into an empty nester. (My kids are almost 20, 18, and 11) I believe staying home is important and I love being here for my children and especially my husband! Thank you for starting this community!

      Hello Blythe,
      I’m Danelle and I understand your dream! I have been married for almost two years, looking forward to the mom part of being a stay-at-home, but we are not there yet 🙂 It gets really hard in today’s society, but it is worth it!

    Hello!
    My name is Danelle, I am 22 yoa, I have been married for almost two years and I am exuberantly passionate about being a SAHW! I thought maybe I was just old-fashioned, or even a bit crazy perhaps… then I found you. I am enlightened and inspired by your blog and all of the other women in this tribe who strive to be tranditional wives and moms. I used to think I belonged in the 1950s, but I have realized there is something much more special about living out those values now in a time that it isn’t common place. I believe that I am blessed to be in a position to stay at home and be my husband’s true help-mate 🙂

    Hello! I just found this blog a few days ago and absolutely love it! I am a SAHM to my 5 year old, I also have a 21 year old son who is married and they have a 4 month old 🙂 I worked out of the home for several years until I was let go two months ago. At first I was angry and bitter to be let go for no reason, but now see it as the doorway to my true calling. I love staying home and caring for my home and family. I have implemented a “50’s” cleaning routine daily and am amazed at how clean and calm our home is now. We are waiting to hear when my husband starts a better paying job, which will hopefully be soon! My mother encourages me to stay home but my friends nag me to go back to work or school whenever I speak to them. They can’t accept that I don’t want to! I am so happy to find a group of like minded women! I look forward to reading every post and getting to know everyone 🙂
