Bye Bye Stay-At-Home-Mom, Hello Domestic Engineer




That term just smacks of a world view that understands nothing of what it looks like to be one.


It conjures an image of a woman in a bathrobe, watching Ellen at 2 o’clock in the afternoon; babies sleeping while she lazes about smiling smugly to herself about how she is doing the most important job in the world.


The problem with this term is that it is a caricature of the job. Stay-at-home. That alone is offensive to anyone who has ever done the job. Laps in IKEA in the dead of winter anyone? McDonald’s playdates at 7 am? Chauffeur, manager of multiple calendars, event planner, nutritionist, therapist. These are just some of the roles we play when we “stay-at-home."
