Then she comes home ,cleans up the kids, starts to make dinner with both kids hanging on her leg, only to have it burn. She recieves no thanks from anyone and gets no paycheck.

A word that was considered obsolete. It now means the member of a relationship who takes care of the house.
Jimmy retired, while Joanne went back to work. I guess he's the housewife now.
