We’re having a rough week here at the RB40 household. Junior and I are sick again. We kept getting sick this winter and it sucks. Whenever I started to feel better, we’d get sick again a few days later. I guess this flu season really is worse than usual. To top it off, Mrs. RB40 is out of town on a business trip this week. Luckily, I’m a seasoned stay-at-home-dad now and we’ll survive until she gets back. Today, I’ll go over a few SAHD questions and share a family soup recipe at the end. RB40Jr is home so I can’t write anything serious. Hopefully, he’s well enough to go to school tomorrow.
Are you a Super Dad?
Unfortunately, I am not Super Dad. Before I quit working full time to become a SAHD, I hoped to be one. However, it’s too much for me. What’s a Super Dad? Here goes… The same applies to SAHM, of course.
Super Dad does all the chores at home. He cooks, cleans, does laundry, washes dishes, fixes the garbage disposal, maintains the car, and keeps the home in tip top shape. Super Dad takes care of the kid and enjoys spending time with him. He plays with Junior all day long and loves every minute of it. Super Dad has endless patience and never gets mad at the kid. He makes sure the family is doing well financially. (I actually did pretty well here.) Super Dad volunteers at school, joins the PTA, and has a great network of other stay-at-home parents. He can arrange play dates at any time and pushes the kid to excel at school. Superdad also is a Super Hubby. He plans regular date nights and spends quality time with the missus often. Etc…
Real life is much more
