The Vocation of Wife and Mother
When I married, I did not know how to cook. When I had Nathaniel, I did not know how to care for a baby. I especially did not know how to care for a baby and cook and clean at the same time. I did not know how to be happy at home. I had prepared to be a career woman, not a homemaker. All my failures are my incentive for teaching Emma now how to cook, clean, sew etc. Reading Why Motherhood is So Much Harder Than it Ought to Be brought back a flood of memories and renewed my determination to prepare Emma as best I can for a life at home.
