Either Stay at Home Mom or Homemaker, I despise the term "housewife" it's so outdated and sounds so harsh, makes me think of an object or belonging.

I say SAHM but if you ask my 3 y/o what I do she says "She's a mommy." LOL it's cute

Stay at home mom





My husband and I are both stay at home parents. We own one of the largest theatrical makeup supply businesses in our state, my husband is a photographer and we also sell on eBay.

I like the term homemaker, but it reminds me too much of some sort of Martha Stewart wannabe, and I'm definitely not a wife to the house, the house doesn't get as much of my attention as maybe it should, so I guess stay-at-home mom. I usually say, "I stay home with my son most of the time and work part-time as an ESL teacher." if I'm asked what I do.

I wouldn't fall into any of those because I work part-time (almost full-time), but I'm also English, but I find the terms housewife and home-maker derogatory and dated.

I prefer 'Stay at home mum'.
