Great Article

I wonder if some of my friends wonder what it is I do when I'm being an at-home dad. Although I don't think anyone thinks that I'm having a grand ol' time all day every day, even I have a difficult time explaining what it is I do all day. Here's a great article responding to a person who wonders what at-home parents do.

I wanted to add something to what at-homes do, or something that I try to do:
Make sure that, when my wife gets home, she doesn't have to do anything. That dinner is almost ready. That I am presentable as is the house. That the baby is ready for love but is not crying for it.

  1. to be honest, three kids four and under the little down time i get I am not cooking and cleaning. My husband and I agreed- my job is mom not housekeeper and chef. Considering I have night shift as well, he comes home and helps me clean and does dishes. I cook when he gets home or make double on the weekends so I can reheat during the week. I get computer time when the baby nurses cause I have become a pro at nursing with no hands! The boys use the time for art or puzzles at my feet so I can still help them. Nap time is ME time- I DO nap if I can because I don't sleep at night much. My best advice for someone just starting- find a routine that best works for you. everyone's life is different so what you do as a SAHP is going to be different.
