Applause for AtHomeDaddy? Yeah, Right

Yesterday we sat in on a new group at our church. The leaders were chatting up The Boss Lady about education and local schools, when the conversation turned to me.

"So, what do you do?"

Inspired by this recent post, What Do You Do? on another SAHD's blog, I answered.

"I am a stay-at-home-dad."

Then a couple of the people in the room actually clapped. Truthfully, I was a little embarrassed, but it got worse. One of the ladies in the group was telling something about her husband 'working on the road for another six months or so.' They have two or three kids and this lady is raising them solo for another six months.

I should have stood up and applauded for her.
