Moms: So Much More Than “Just a Housewife”

This week’s radio commentary…

A recent Family Circus comic strip depicts a 2010 Census employee interviewing a mom, who is surrounded by her four children. He’s filling out the form for her and answers his own question as to her occupation with, “just a housewife.”

The mom is frowning, and we see her thoughts as she fills in the job description for “just a housewife:” teacher, cook, gardener, nurse, veterinarian, accountant, news commentator, seamstress, laundress, referee… And we know we could add a dozen more jobs to that list, such as chauffer, child psychologist and coach.
