2012, the Year I Was a Stay-at-Home Dad

2012: The Year I Was a Stay-At-Home Dad

It’s 12:08. On any particular day, a month ago, I’d be sitting next to my son at our kitchen table, and we’d be eating our sandwiches, talking about the video games we might play that day. These days, it’s back to giving my son a hug and a kiss in the morning, then not seeing him until I’m home after work.

For a good portion of 2012, I was a stay-at-home dad. I did almost everything with my three year old son: eat, play, write, and sometimes, god willing, nap.

The Media Uses the Term ‘Mancession’ Now and Proudly Giggles

By  •  News

The U.S. Census Bureau found that fathers acting as primary caregivers to children under 15 now represent 32% of households – which is a 6% jump from 2002. For dads with preschool-aged kids, the census found that 1-in-5 are the primary caregiver.

There have been a lot of stories this holiday season about single fathers and stay-at-home fathers, all trying to get to the bottom of why fathers would choose to be at home with their kids.

Meanwhile, the media has started using the term “mancession” and everyone’s tickled pink about using it. Also, be on the lookout for “dadcession.” And finally, “fatherecession.” I just made up that last one, don’t look for it anywhere.
