As a Stay At Home Dad … Surely NOT!
You see, as a stay at home dad it’s a totally different experience. Of course, we still have the notions that we’ve spent too much money over Christmas, we might also hate the cold, short days of winter in the UK and we might even long for the long sunny days of summer.
However, as a stay at home dad you certainly don’t have to worry about going back to work after a nice long Christmas break. Perhaps dreading the thought of having to go back to work. Even now we are well into the month of January some may be wishing their lives away so they can go on their annual vacation.
There’s no need to do the daily commute to work either, as a stay at home dad.
But I find above all else that keeps me going through these dark months of winter are the thoughts that as a stay at home dad, of two years, my weeks and days become one. What I mean by this is, I actually don’t know or even care what day of the week it is today.
Now just in case my wife reads this post, I’m not going to say it is a doddle being a stay at home dad, no no no no!
However As A Stay At Home Dad Every DAY Is Like The WEEKEND!
Spending time with Luke is the key and you will know this yourself if you are lucky enough to have a healthy and lively son or daughter (perhaps plural) they manage to keep you young, they are always ready with a smile, hug or a kiss. Yes they can be naughty, but that is just them trying to discover the boundaries of life (or so Grandad tells me).
Changing nappies(diapers) can’t even dampen my enthusiasm.
Would I Change My Stay At Home Dad Status?
No way, it will only happen if ALL else fails. This is such an experience that I just don’t want it to end. All I see are envious dads who wished they could have achieved stay at home dad status. Some I see on the golf course, others in everyday life, some through my internet business.
Am I suffering January Blues ?… No way and probably for the first time in my life, I don’t have to worry about what has gone on at work that will affect my salary check. I am my own boss and as a stay at home dad, I have the work life balance perfect.
