Home may be where the heart is, but is there any room for the brain?

Housewife Cartoon

The perks of being a housewife, as told by a woman who gave up a full-time career to find fulfillment in her home:

Once you start bonding with your home, spending time with your kids, enjoying the pleasures of a healthy marriage and paying attention to your needs as well, your life transforms.  You can almost have it all.  Yes, something has to go — for me, it was my career.  But I found a way to keep my brain going — I wrote a book while the kids were napping. 

It's a good thing that she did find something to occupy her mind, because raising children is such brainless tedium.
