I just love that term. In my early 20's I would not have thought it cool to write that on the blank of "vocation." But now at a ripe old age of 41, I consider it an honor. I love that I get to be home raising my own kids. I love that my husband sees value in my being here. I love that he works hard to make this happen for us. I don't necessarily love the toilet cleaning. But, hey, not everything's a party!
Recently I was filling out a contact sheet and I wrote "homemaker" under the job description. When I turned it in, I noticed that someone else had written the same thing. "Awesome," I thought, "someone else is willing to call it what it is!"
