The Adventures And Folleys Of The SAHD

I have once again taken on the role of Full time Stay At Home Dad since my wife has gone back to work full time. I was talking to a friend about it the other evening over coffee. He wanted to know how I am coping. I told him that I thought I would hate it but I am actually really enjoying it. He made the insightful observation that when he is at home with the kids (he has 6 and I have 4) things go well as long as he isn't trying to do his stuff while looking after them. That is so true. Because it is the number one task at hand, I can relax because I don't have anything else that I should be doing. Except there are situations that I find myself in from time to time like the one I find myself in as I blog this entry. A thought for a blog post came to me and I wanted to write about it before I lost it but of coarse my four year old is hovering around waiting for me to get off of the computer so we can go downstairs and play. There are always times like this that occur throughout the week, but in the bigger picture I am putting the child minding first on the priority list and the "me" projects behind it. So far this is a good job.

How did you manage to get rid of the other projects? Have you found a way to get more than 4 days out of a pair of shorts?
