In mexico we say Mozo.

In this dictionary "mozo" is a man-servant engaged to do all kinds of work in the house.

Shara, you are very lucky indeed to have one of these. LOL

I had always heard "ama de casa" for housewife, but I see how dueña could be used as well. Marianne is probably right in that you could probably just use the masculine of either dueña or ama: Dueño/amo de casa.

If "dueña de casa" is a housewife, then how about "dueño de casa" for a husband that stays at home.

Let's wait and see what others say. grin
