People see what they expect to see when they look at mothers. A new mom wrote (I forget where) that she was playing with their toddler and her husband says “wow. You’re really engrossed in that, aren’t you?” And she snapped “can’t you see I’m bored?!”
He didn’t, wouldn’t have if she’d said nothing. I feel bad for these wives who have “they would rather be at home being moms” projected onto them. I suspect they are just nodding when their husbands say such things and feeling guilty about not being “good moms”.
