I am a stay at home mom with kids/family staying outside of india. I do get the question of "What do you do all day" (sounding very inquisitive) especially from fellow stay at home aunts from inlaws side. These folks have either never worked or retired. They even have grown up kids above 25 (guys) who doesn't have any solid job/ambition. Nothing irritates me more and i feel terrible when they ask this. I just keep mum. . By god's grace we are financially doing ok . I used to work many years in IT and stopped because it was getting too much to handle everything. We go to their place to give gifts and my hubby helps them financially too from so many years. I feel very disrespected by the way they treat me. These are close relatives from MIL's side. MIL is a different story all together. so can't escape or not help since they need financial help.
