Over at An Attitude Adjustment, Staying At Home For Now mom Jana feels like a kindred spirit. She’s an English teacher, but layoffs coincided with the birth of her second child so she’s decided to make the most of it. While she cherishes the opportunity to spend time with her young children, she also feels the need for something more than that. The blog is her outlet.

Her latest post has been recognized by the WP selection staff. The title caught my eye: Women in Aprons.

Jana points out that cooking is In. Everyone’s going organic, everyone wants to be healthier and feed their families good food. She’s all for that. What she objects to is the insidious implication that women are failing in their ‘roles.’ Everything is directed at women, not men.

And that there are still people who can find a good balance for themselves with such things, even in the face of layoffs. If someone is a SAHM, by choice or necessity, there’s nothing wrong with that. The only thing I object to is when the only thing we constantly hear is that staying at home is the only function/role a woman SHOULD have and anything else is WRONG and blasphemous. The very people who claim to dislike having a different way of life foisted onto them, would like to foist their way of life onto everybody else. However, it’s refreshing to see that there are still people out there who are in this lifestyle who do not attempt to do that to those who can and choose to not stay at home.
