What Do You DO All Day??


Being a stay-at-home parent is harder than you think. You’ve heard it a thousand times, but you don’t buy it. Here’s proof:

You think

I hit the McDonald’s drive-through for lunch every day.

But really

Sometimes I make him a mouse for lunch. Maybe it’s not Pinterest-worthy, but he doesn’t know that.

Clearly, if I were pinning it, I'd try harder.

You think

I look at pictures of cute cats on Facebook all day.

But really

I have my own, thank you very much.

Grumpy Cat, meet Surly Cat.

You think

I let him zone out in front of Dora for 10 hours.

But really

We be learnin’. I bet my kid knows more dinosaurs than you do. Challenge!

Look at that E! It's perfect.

You think

I let him play Nintendo all day.

But really

Playing Mario and Zelda are sacred rites of passage that help form bonds between a father and son, and I would never interfere with that. We play tic-tac-toe… 

He let me win.

...and Star Wars Angry Birds.

Shut up, it teaches... Cause and effect? I don't know.

You think

I feed him Stouffer's frozen lasagna for dinner.

But really

Okay, I feed him frozen dinosaur nuggets. But they're all white meat, I swear!

And SO GOOD with honey mustard.

You think

I sit around eating bonbons.

But really

I’m not even sure what bonbons are. Are they those ice cream nuggets? Those fancy chocolates in the gold wrapper? Don’t be silly. I eat leftover Halloween candy…

Hahaha, he forgot all about it!

...or leftover Easter candy. Depending on which half of the year it is.

Who am I kidding? I stockpile Cadbury Eggs year-round.

You think

I can’t wait until he goes to bed, so I can drink wine and hang out on Twitter.

But really

You’re kind of right. But I do miss him, most of the time.

Hey, I need some grownup interaction! @JennSmthngClvr
