Welcome back to the routine

It is official, the holidaze are over. The Talker started back to school this morning and I drove the carpool. That is always a good way to wake yourself out of a three week slumber! The Boss Lady was back at her school on Monday. And The Princess and I start back in the morning. By Friday I'll be begging for a day off.

I had not even walked into our kitchen for the entire break. Yesterday I spent more than two hours cleaning and straightening everything out. After having The Boss Lady running the kitchen for almost three weeks, I had to reorganize the entire place so I could put away the groceries and find food for lunch.

You know, my buddies often ask me if this Stay at Home Dad thing is for real. My answer? Yep, this really is my life. After having someone doing the cooking for most of a month I just spent the better part of a day bitching and moaning because the kitchen was a disorganized mess. Pretty sad, no?

Welcome to my life.

Now I am off to do some laundry. If I can find my way out to the washer and dryer. It has been a long time, after all.

You know what... sometimes you just have to do what is best for your family. I think being a stay-at-home dad is a great thing... period!

To paraphrase Sidra of Seinfeld fame, "It's real, and it's spectacular."

Ok, perhaps being a stay-at-home parent isn't always spectacular, but it's definitely oh so very real.

You guys are right.

We are up to our necks in reality around here!

Just wait... you may get a call from some producers of TLC or something.. maybe you can get your own show.. "Stay at home dad!" LOL!

You working PT? How many do you have at home with you when you're not?

(also...the CAPTCHA phrase I have to type in is, "diker")

I'm just sayin'...
