....You Might Be An At Home Dad


While stay at home dads are on the rise in America, there can still be lots of distance between us that prevent us from forming tighter knit groups. Some of us even feeling isolated because we can't find others who are doing the same job at home who want to hang. While the internet is not exactly a substitute for a person who can show up at your door at any time for an instant play date to retain your sanity, it has become a source of support for many.

I belong to an awesome group of guys on Facebook. It's a group of Stay At Home Dads who support each other via social media. We talk about great topics in parenting, share jokes, concerns, and triumphs. This great group was started by Eric from Dad On The Run. Recently, after having a rough morning and needing a good laugh from these guys, I posed this question to them:

I need a good laugh. Let's do a post ala Jeff Foxworthy. I'll go first. Fill in the blank

If after playing on the floor you look like a human lint roller,
You might be a Stay At Home Dad.


I opened up the post to other Stay At Home Dads from the group and the hilarity ensued:

Mike Andrews of Geek Dad of Four

If you have every Disney/Nick Jr/PBS kid show's theme song memorized...

Eric of Dad On The Run

If you ever get poop on your hands before you pour your morning coffee...

If you have watched every Pixar movie more than a dozen times...

If you have to argue with little people during breakfast about what day of the week it is....

If you laugh at knock, knock jokes with no discernible punchline (or the exact same one you just told... verbatim)..

Bill Peebles of I Hope I Win A Toaster

If your bathroom shines and your floors are spotless and the laundry is done but you haven't showered or shaved in four days ...

If the floor of your truck is dirty enough to sprout sunflower seeds ...

Brandon Klinetobe of The Funny Conversations

If you ever realized your kids know more than you..

What means I heard you, but I'm still not listening...

Chris Bernholdt of DadNCharge

If you have ever done something to yourself that made you look foolish or ridiculous to stop a crying child...

If you lock yourself in the bathroom to take a crap...

If you have names for certain diaper situations like Ass-plosion, or Crap-tastrophe...

If you spend more time "fishing" various objects out of the toilet than you do ACTUALLY fishing...

When you wake up to a beautiful breezy day and think "I get at least three loads of laundry dry today".

When you get more excited about the new cordless vacuum than you did about the cordless drill you installed it with...
