BlogHer has a good post up today about the benefits of stay-at-home motherhood to the family life of the piece's author. Not the benefits to children, of which plenty has been written over the years--instead, the benefits to the family/household/parents, which is a different thing. Not all details of the piece apply to me--I never worked full-time during the days, for example, after having babies; only evenings in my private practice, at first, and later part-time from home as a writer--but the author deftly describes exactly what I'm trying to avoid by staying home as a full-time housewife/mom, and how things are different now that she's home. It's worth a read--check it out.
