This past week, another parent said about my SAH, "You're doing a great thing by SAH."

Did they say why they wished their wives WOH?

I heard more comments about men wanting their wives to work than wanting their wives to SAH.

don't know. I know that one of the things that attracted my dh to me was the fact that I was a wohm -- and raising 3 great kids.

you make a great point..through the years,i've heard older women say plenty of times that they're great to see i'm a sahm as they were sahms themselves when their children were small (an ice breaker with the welcome to the neighborhood brownies and all,lol).........but i do get what you mean about woh *men* feeling more comfortable acknowledging our role than woh women.
