Don't Call Me Mr. Mom
For the last two months Melanie (my wife) has been working on Thursdays so that means I have been home with the boys. It’s funny, a number of people have made the predictable “Mr. Mom” comment. I’ll be honest, I hate that comment. I really do. Last time I checked, I’m their dad. So, if you want to call me Mr. Dad, thats okay with me. Because that’s what I am…
Also, when I am home watching my kids, fulfilling my role as a parent…don’t call me the babysitter. I’m “dad.” Its not like these kids are my wife’s responsibility and I just happen to watch them for her everyonce and a while. That’s a screwed up view of manhood and womanhood.
I. Am. Their. Dad. I’m not Mr. Mom and I’m not the babysitter.
Okay, I think you get the point.
Mini-rant is over…
