True Confessions of a Stay at Home Dad
spacer
This is a blog about my life. My wife and I have three kids, ages six, three and one. Last year I gave up my gig as a middle school teacher to stay home with my kids full-time. This past year has been the most challenging, easy, relaxing, stressful, fun, tiring and rewarding year of my life.

My wife Amanda and I have been married for seven years. She spends her days (and nights and weekends) as an overworked Medical Resident.

Our oldest daughter, Eloise, is a bright, sweet, emotional first grader that loves to talk (she gets it from her mom). When not at school she is most likely playing dress up, turning some part of our house into a playroom, or creating a craft projects that involve: glue, magazines, markers, staples, stickers, scissors, crayons, pens, and a dozen sheets of paper.

Henry, the three year old middle child, is hell on wheels. There is not a house or store Henry cannot destroy in five to seven minutes max. He loves playing with his trucks, digging in his sandbox and occasionally putting on his sister’s pink plastic high heels.

Maggie, the one year old, is as sweet as they come. At a very early age she learned that her crying could barely be heard over the volume of her siblings. She has developed a blood curdling scream in order to get our attention that would make any horror movie producer proud.

Well there you have it, that’s pretty much my family in a nutshell.

It's Only a Date

December 14, 2012 | 12:36 PM

This month I asked some other dads to contribute their own stories, give advice or just share whatever was on their mind.

Enjoy,

Pete

As a divorced Dad I don't get to see my son on a daily basis. This makes things tough around the Holidays as the date of the Holiday may not match the date of visitation. What this has led me to teach my son is this, It's just a date. The date doesn't define us anymore. If we can do Thanksgiving on a Satuday then that's what we do. This has taught him that its more about the family and the time together than a specific number on a calendar. When he was younger the Santa explanations had to be creative for sure, but now he understands its more about being together than anything else.
