Welcome to The Helpful Housewife! I started this blog as a way to help encourage and guide women who choose to be stay at home parents, even after their kids are all in school full time. If this is you, I would love for you to stick around! Subscribe to the blog so you can keep up to date on everything happening here!
Being the full time keeper of your home is important work that shouldn’t be overlooked or undermined. If you’re looking for help, ideas, tips, recipes, and some encouragement as you continue the journey as a housewife (such a dated term, but it’s accurate!), you’re in the right place! Though this blog is just beginning, I plan to offer you lots of help in all aspects of maintaining your home!
Ever since my oldest child was born, my husband and I chose to have one of us home at all times. And that has been the most rewarding decision we have ever made! There is always time to make more money, but children grow up in a finite amount of time. You will never regret spending time with the people you love!
I am a mom of 4 (3 boys ages 20, 9, and 7 and 1 girl age 17), and a wife to Paul since 1996, I know the challenges that come with raising children of all ages. I know those challenges don’t magically end when everyone is in school full time. I am here to validate your choice to be a housewife! You play a VITAL role in the smooth functioning of your household!
I am so happy to have you join me on this journey! I hope you’ll find lots of helpful information to encourage you to build a strong, happy household for many years to come! Your family will thank you for it!
