My Husband Paid Me to Be a Stay-at-Home Mom [psmag.com]

By Melissa Petro, Pacific Standard, July 8, 2019. My progressive husband was against it, but I convinced him of the arrangement.

Teachable moments are those seconds of clarity when someone experiences an absolute understanding that previously eluded him or her. In my work as a School Nurse, I was accustomed to creating the “teachable moments” for my students. On this particular late afternoon, it was my turn to experience a “teachable moment” from a student. Who recognizes this scenario? It was another endless day of problem-solving, crisis management, sewing ripped pants, helping a staff member deal with a personal...
