Are any Planeteers stay at home dads?

Any one out there stay at home with the kids? Due to our recent move to the KC area for my wife's new job, I have found myself a stay at home dad (AKA House-husband). Watching the little one while his older brother is at school is a bit of a change from working all day but all in all not a bad change. Just way more cartoons than I'm used to. Discuss.

I worked while my wife went to nursing school, that was hard on both of us. Now that she has her ticket punched and we moved for her dream job, I'm at home. It isn't a laugh a minute party though. I do the house work, deal with a small child, all of the stuff the wife does traditionally. We even have the "your not helping at home" fights just with the roles reversed. Still I get to spend time with my 18mo old and that is not an unimportant benefit of staying at home.

You are so lazy, you know better than to let her bring in the bacon. You are whipped enough with financial leverage, you better not give her anything else to hold over your head. BTW where do you go to school?

I would say that unless she gets a 4year nursing degree, you'll never be able to live off her income alone. The way to good money for a nurse is moving to more administrative jobs most of the time. Thats not to say you can't do it other ways but the best, highest paying shifts are usealy taken by the more senior nurses. Also, if she is motivated, she can work 2-3 shifts a week somewhere then pick up some more at a different employer.

I'm not sure that this harsh of criticism is justified. One of the things my dad regrets is not having more time to spend with us kids. It is best if one parent can stay home, especially when the kids are young, and I don't care who it is. However if you just want to stay home and watch TV while eating on the couch, well, we have names for women that do that and they aren't nice.

JCCC huh? Had a buddy go there, mainly because he didn't have good enough grades to get into KU. Too bad the moron lasted the fall semester this year and flunk out. Spent too much money at the bars and now is working for his parents, paying them off.

I do it during the summer. My wife works out of our home, too, so we're all at home during the summer.

I always thought I could do it, but after staying home with our baby all last summer, I was pretty bored. Of course, there's a difference in what you can do with a 5 month old vs. what you can do with a 5 year old. As our son gets older, I think it will get more and more fun.

That was kind of my thinking posting. The thought of a play date with the little ones is enough to make me look for a razor blade. To much Oprah and Daytime soaps. Throw in Chiefs football, maybe it would be enjoyable.

In the past when my child was not in school, my wife and I had our share of "you go to work and I'll be glad to stay at home" arguments. But, in reality, I would have probably gone crazy. Now that my kid is in school though, I'd trade places in a heart beat.

If you take care of the kids and do all that, well, I would nominate you for Grand-Poobah of SAHDs (Stay at Home Dads).
