“Yes, my wife is JUST a mother…. Yes, she is just a mother. Which is sort of like looking at the sky and saying, ‘hey, it’s just the sun.'”
You’ve gotta love how this guy writes. Matt Walsh’s infamous “You’re a stay-at-home mom? What do you DO all day?” article earned his blog a slew of stay-at-home mom fans, not to mention about three million views in two days.
Read it, and it’s easy to see why.
The article was written as a tribute to Matt’s wife, a stay-at-home mother of twins, but it resounds with all stay-at-home moms because it heartens us that someone actually gets it and is willing to say it with no holds barred.
Most awesome of all, this is not just someone, but a guy. A husband! He sees our situation as it is, and it’s intoxicatingly refreshing! He sums up our conundrum precisely and with a clever brand of humor and elegance.
In a later blog, Stay-at-home moms: you don’t owe the world an explanation, Matt wrote, “I’m just a guy who loves his wife and appreciates the sacrifices she makes for the family. That’s really the entirety of my insight into this subject.”
Simply put, yet his words are music to all stay-at-home moms’ ears.
