Much has been said about full-time motherhood and how great it is for moms to be able to spend their time with their kids while dad goes to work every weekday. To many mothers out there, motherhood is a full-time job. It’s actually more full-time than your regular nine-to-fiver. It’s a job 24/7, 365 days a year (add more during leap years). But what about the full-time dad?
Hello folks. I’m Angelo and I’ll be filling in for Lara while her family takes care of some pirate matters. Why all this talk about the full-time dad, you ask? I consider myself to be one.
Well, actually fatherhood is also a full-time job. And having to go to work to make a decent living for the family is considered part of that. But in my case it’s different. I work at home. That’s not your usual setup for fathers, but I do know a handful of dads who do the same.
My work and business involve going online and working on Web and content development projects. So that means I can practically work anywhere there’s a decent Internet connection. And I sometimes do work at caf�s outside of the house. But most of the time, I’m right here in my home office.
Working at home can be both rewarding and difficult, especially when you have one preschool-aged child and a toddler like I do (another one’s on the way!). Want to find out why? Watch this space. I’ll be writing about my experiences every other day here on the Parenting Blog.
