You should have just said "So does mine" and left it at that.
I used to work, but Dh did get a better paying job & our house is paid off, so I stay home now. I do tell people that. I wanted to stay home before though. Not everyone does. I
feel less stifled creatively & intellectually at home in general
than I did having to deal with the working world & all their ideas of who I should
be & what I needed
to do. Now I am free to be however I want - so I do appreciate that. There are certainly things I do
miss though. So I also
understand that aspect as well.
And believe me - I never say I don't "have to work" I say I don't need an income if I say anything, because I feel like I work just as hard now as I did before. All
, it is just a matter of whether it's a paid position or a family position. :/
I don't feel at all bad about not bringing in money. I DO feel annoyed that often when I wear cute clothes JUST like I did when I had a job, people often ask me where I am going.
