Feels like coming home...

I have to admit that I did not realize how much I have missed this place until I signed on today. I have been away for several months trying to come to grips with being a stay at home dad. My Daughter has really been taking up all my time and I haven't been on line much recently because of that, but even though I may not have held many conversations on here it really was like coming home to family. I hope to be more active now that I am more settled with this new role. Hope to see everyone on the boards.

Welcome back!
I did the stay at home dad thing for 2.5 years but I did work during the evening, it was very tough to manage "your" time, because you are always needed for something, planning meals, etc... I definitely found a new respect for all parents who stay at home, I found that a lot more tiring than my job. It will be very rewarding spending all that time with your little one.

my brother was a stay at home dad to his girls and he loved it! I was a stay at home mom and would not have given up that time with my kids for anything! Something so special about being there for your kids when they are growing.

I love it here too!
