Stay at home dad

I often wish that I could be a stay at home dad. I took six weeks of paternity leave after my first born arrived and my wife went back to work. I enjoyed that time, but Dimples only took bottles at that time. During my leave the wife decided to retire from teaching and stay at home with the kids. That was when the dream ended. The wife had no plans of becoming my sugar mama. Work has been rough this week. I had to go in early (5:30 am) on Thursday and Friday. Both days I had to stay late. The wife had some girlie party to go to last night, and another women's ministry thing to go to today. That made three whole meals in a row for me to have to prepare for the kids. I do use the word prepare loosely. None of these were meals made with the special ingredient love. Anyway, I may not be upset about the loss of my stay at home dream anymore. If only the kids didn't need to eat three times a day. Here is to you stay at home mom's!

I think we Stay at home moms sometimes envy dads that get to go "away" to work too. Why is the grass always greener on the other side of the fence - until you get there?

Hubby was glad to get back to work today after 4 weeks of paternity leave!!!
