Kay’s gone for a few days on a business trip, and I am holding down the fort as Mr. Mom. Yesterday was go, go, go, I scarcely had 5 minutes to sit down to relax: Take Kay to the airport, shop for more school supplies, oh and we need toothpaste and coffee, do some laundry and a little cleaning, then go pick up the kids from school, help them with homework and piano, get one kid in the shower while I cook, serve the meal, have the kids clean up but there’s always something for the parent, read the kids a story and tuck them in bed. Whew!
I tip my hat to all at-home moms and dads. The next time somebody says, “So you don’t work?” you have my permission to slug them.
