True Confessions of a Stay at Home Dad
spacer
In May of 2011, I dismissed class for the last time and began a new chapter in my life, full-time dad. I taught middle school for seven years, but with two kids and a third on the way, I wasn't able to give as much time to teaching as it required, plus I wanted to spend more time with my own kids, instead of someone else's.

My wife and I have been married for nine years. She spends her days (and some nights and weekends) as an OB/GYN, or as my kids like to call it, “catching babies.”

We have three kids. First Born is eight years old, but likes to pretend she’s in college. Our son, Middle Man is five, but we’re convinced by the way he talks about things like “beautiful sunsets” that he’s an old soul, and our youngest, the Blonde Bomber is only three, but already has the attitude of a teenager.

Our kids provide us with an endless amount of stories. Writing and retelling these stories for Indy’s Child has been my part-time job for the past three years.

You can contact me on Facebook at True Confessions of a Stay at Home Dad or via email at indyschildpete@gmail.com.

They Said What?

August 29, 2013 | 12:11 PM

A look back at some of the funny things my kids have said over the past year or so...

1. "You can't always trust yourself, sometimes you have to trust your daughter." -Words of wisdom, spoken to me from my six-year-old.

------

2. "I'm not afraid of bees, I'm Batman." -My ridiculous two-year-old

-----

3. "Dammit, I forgot to pack my jammies!"- My six-year-old daughter at grandma's house.

-----

4. I'm certain my son is too old for diapers. Today he comes up to me, walking like a cowboy and smelling like an outhouse and says, "Dad we're gonna need some wipes."

-----

5. After my son climbed up the slide at the playground, he proclaimed in the manliest voice he could muster, "I AM THE QUEEN OF THE CASTLE!"

-----

6. "Dad I wasn't rolling my eyes. Sometimes I just lift them up, then they fall back down. It's how I breathe sometimes."

-----

7. "Everyone has a buttocks, except for the mailman." -a three-year-old's wisdom.

-----

8. Me: Nap time.

Son: No, it's not dark out.

Me: Nap time.

Son: Am I nocturnal?

Me: No.

Son: Then I don't sleep during the day.

-----

9. "Dad, I NEED $88.00!!! -My daughter after spending five minutes on the American Girl Doll website.

-----

10. "Dad, since parents are the boss of kids can they fire their kids?"

-----

11. "You can't be a prince with your hands in your pants!" Spoken from my daughter to her brother.

-Pete
