After 4 years of Dad-hood and complaining about leaving my family daily to go to work, I’ve been given the chance to become a Stay at Home Dad. Should I do it?
To be honest there was a certain amount of relief when I got told that I'd been made redundant. I don’t have to go to the office! I don’t need to wave goodbye to my children in the morning, or explain to them in the evening why I’d been away from them. I can be the stay at home Dad I always wanted to be – to spend time where my heart is – with my family.
So the path forwards is set: Stay at home Dad. Right?
But that night, about 3 am, panic struck. I’d been on autopilot for most of the day, but now the news sunk in. I woke up, and couldn’t get back to sleep.
Or am I? Surely I have enough to keep me busy, staying at home?
