someone is going to get punched in the face

so help me God, but if someone calls me mr. mom or says that it's nice that i am babysitting my own kid again, i'm going to lose it.

for some reason there is still this stereotype that exists that fathers aren't capable of caring for their own children. "oh you change the diapers, you gave him his bottles!" is there some unwritten law out there that states that since i stay at home my masculinity has diminished. well like i said, i'll show them some masculinity in the form of a beat down, man or woman it won't matter.

start wearing a dress that shows your chest. I guarantee the comments will take a new tone.

Bring it sissy boy. ha ha kidding. keith if it means anything to you I am envious of your position. Before I had the job I am doing now my ideal job would have been to stay at home and take care of the kids. The fact that you get to rocks and I admire you for it as it is a tough job to do. I have learned since that the best job in the world is the one God wants you to do. So in that sense we are both doing a great job. You have my support is basically what I am trying to say. That and I think I could beat you in a fight. Come to BC and we will find out if you want.

Hi Everyone,
Keith, take a deep breath, count to 10. Ready. emppppppp---whew 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10. There now. You have to realize that many of the males from the older generation will find it strange, the women will find it fantastic and the younger male generation are envious. You have a very difficult job, but only those that have done it realize that. Whether or not parents stay at home or go out in the work force we all have jobs to do and what a miracle if we love what we do. It sounds to me that you and Becky are very happy in your roles. To the people that are making comments, try to ignore it and remember how rich your life is. I think you are doing a marvelous job!!!!!! I truly mean that. Now give your family a hug and kiss for us.
God Bless,
Aunt Pam

I say you should just glare at them, and say "Yeah, well, not that you'd know, but it takes quite a bit of time to teach your kid how to grow up and not end up like a man-bitch.

That would be nice.

Dad's rock!!!!

It would be awesome to stay home with Mik all the time...mold her into a "little tyler", undermine her mother's authority all the time....ah, I've said too much.....ah...yeah, um....being a stay at home dad is great.

*and it's not considered "babysitting" if it's your own's raising them.
