Only 105k?! Maybe those are the only ones who self-identify.

Heyya Sparkers!

According to the US Census Bureau, there 105,000 “stay-at-home” dads. These are married fathers with children under 15 who are not in the labor force primarily so they can care for family members while their wives work outside the home. Stay-at-home dads care for 189,000 children.

Two and a half years ago, I became one of them!

I’m taking care of the kiddo and writing full time from the comfort of my home office. In all fairness, I didn’t expect this to be an “early retirement” by any means, but it’s been more of a challenge that I thought it would be.

Over the months, I’ve discovered five things I really miss about being out in the working world, as well as five things I love about having my office right down the hall.

You can read the full article, here: shar.es/aVZCt

Thanks,

-Perry
