Just A Darling Little Slave? Think Again.

I am finding Stay at Home Mom and Working at Home mom blogs very amusing. I mean it not in a pejorative sense. On the contrary, I think moms have been empowered by the blogsphere in terms of being semi-dependent on their husbands in terms of finances. My Mom sometimes can’t help but express her discontent about being ‘just’ a homemaker ever since she was married to my father. She sometimes asked me “if she’s just gonna be like this”. I tried to explain that my father too is “just gonna be like that” because essentially, the roles they have to assume are more or less fixed on the fulcrum of parenthood. I just try to encourage both my Mom and my Dad to look for enriching hobbies aside from what they currently do. I’m recommending Travel blog to my mom. Perhaps she could get some inspiration from this new-age mommy. ^^;

Yeah, we cannot choose to alter our master role. But we can always do something else in the fringe.
