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.

DISCLAIMER: If you are looking for parenting advice you have come to the wrong place. Enjoy!

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
