Why I Chose Homemaking, Part 1

By Mrs. Kuti Honestly, I felt like this was my calling, in so many ways I felt like this life chose me. I remember from a very young age wanting to have the freedom to stay home to nurture my family to their greatest selves, to be fully available to their needs, to always be present. So much so I remember when I turned 15 years old my parents and I were discussing what type ofcar I wanted for my sweet 16th birthday and I remember vividly saying I wanted a minivan lol. In my mind, I could get a toyota or honda now and knowing the history with those brands I could have it 20+ years if I took very good care of it.Plus, I already had my life planned out, married by 25 with three children by 30 years old. And by having my parents purchase my minivan then Iwouldn’t have to purchase one l...

That Mothering Question that Evokes Guilt

So, due to Radical Feminism, young girls are raised to believe that women are supposed to have it all but their personal freedom is absolutely their first priority. This priority should always be met. Usually this freedom is first career, work, j-o-b, independence. The reason this is important is because this is what men grow up thinking about and being trained into. Whatever men fixate on, women should as well. The object of desire is to compete with men, to rival them in life goals. Without said competition, a woman's life is meaningless, because there is nothing else; except sexual identity and freedom. Work and sex and the top 2 priorities for any self respecting Rad Fem. Women fall into various positions on the Radical Feminist spectrum, and their answers to this question ma...

A Mother’s Responsibility To Her Children

During a bloody Father's Day weekend in Chicago, among the many dead is a 3 year old boy. He was shot dead while in a car that was being driven by his step-father; who was the actual target of the murderers. The step-father only suffered a minor grazing by the bullet and refused medical help. While the usual neighborhood admonishment takes place with a small gathering of local ministers and folks displaying public tears over the senseless violence they endure, I take a step back from my immense disgust at the entirety of this so-called 'black' experience of living in the 'hood to once again focus on the adage: 'What we allow, persists. What persists becomes the culture'. Yes, I am on the outside looking in. Yes, I have, for a short time, lived in the 'hood of Atlanta (while I was...

A Free Black Wife

By @the.pinnacle.housewife I love being able to be home with my husband and babies. I love being able to devote my time fully to the caring of my home. I love that I'm married to a dominant, masculine man who only wants the best for his family. I love that he puts me in a position to be able to birth our babies at home, in peace, in serenity. I love the feeling I get when I would go grocery or home shopping in the mornings on weekdays and have the store to myself (except for the senior ladies and their husbands). I love that I escaped the matrix of working for the man, and instead have the pleasure of working WITH my man and get the love as well. I love that when I desire a family getaway I get it. I love that I have total control on what I do, how I do it, and when I ...

Allowing Our Daughters Their Right to Femininity

By @the.pinnacle.housewife For future black mothers that blossomed from my womb, Black motherhood for them means not being a single mother. Black motherhood means living in teaching righteously. Black motherhood means birthing at home. Black motherhood means mothering sustainable I to the best of her ability. Black motherhood means being a wife to a highly productive Godly man. Black motherhood means allowing our daughters their right to femininity and girlhood and our sons their right to masculinity and boyhood. Black motherhood means setting an even higher standard for my daughters. For them, we won't celebrate baby showers before bridal showers. They won't immortalize men who haven't married them. There's nothing to gain from that. Black motherhood means not spanking our ...

Despite 40 Years of Feminism, Women are Less Happy

By OLINKA KOSTER Women are less happy nowadays despite 40 years of feminism, a new study claims. Despite having more opportunities than ever before, they have a lower sense of well-being and life satisfaction, it found. The study, The Paradox of Declining Female Happiness, said the same was true for women of different ages and whether or not they were married or had children.It said the results appeared surprising given that modern women had been liberated from their traditional 1950s role of housewife. Instead, their earning power has soared, women are doing better than men in education and they are in control of decisions over whether to start a family. The findings were released as Sir Stuart Rose, chairman of Marks & Spencer, claimed that women 'have never had it ...

How the role of being a mom has changed throughout history

Article by Stacey HutsonUpdated May 9, 2018 The role of a mom is undoubtedly an important one. As a first-time mom-to-be, I have developed a new habit that is taking over my coffee table and racking up my Amazon account long before childbirth even happens. I have become a motherhood book hoarder. Up until now, most of my books have been on the joys (and pains) of pregnancy. But as the big day gets closer, I've started to pay more attention to what I need to do after baby arrives to be the best mother I can be. Of course, "best mother" is a subjective measure. And its definition has changed greatly over the years (as has our understanding of most things). Book searching, in fact, is a great way to see that change. It doesn't tell the whole story but, speaking from experience, a sca...

Hurried Woman Syndrome

HURRIED WOMAN SYNDROME!!!I once lived the excerpt below but made a firm decision that my next and last marriage would afford me the opportunity to be a present mom, a #SAHM. I would love for all women to slow down and actually experience life and #motherhood from a less stressful and burned out perspective. It all begins with an acknowledgment and a decision to live differently. The "how" will come. Trust."Ms. Hughes and millions of other women have made the choice to give up their all-consuming careers. Why?Largely because the feminist battle cry of “having it all” resulted in lots of stress over a myriad of competing demands for time, guilt for the virtual neglect of children, and longing for more home-and-hearth time.In fact, there is even a new syndrome ascribed to working mothers c...
