Can I be frank and honest and open? The only happy stay-at-home dads are the bloggers. The rest are insecure, career-abandoning losers with no friends. So get some friends, you say? With a LinkedIn profile that says "SAHD"? Good luck with that. Honestly, it's no family secret that I'm the career-and-family expert around here. Still, I don't know what my husband's deal is, because we're not talking--not even in front of the sitter! And he clearly doesn't even bother reading my blog. Or my book, Or else why would he have dumped his career to "raise his kids"? Our kids, whatever. I can't pack a lunch worth a damn. And now he's talking about counselling and divorce. I'll be honest, because that's just what savvy business experts are: I didn't see that one coming.
"My own marriage and the myth of the stay-at-home dad," a recent post on Penelope Trunk's blog, Brazen Careerist, synopsized in the style of the original, with apologies to John Crace and the Guardian's The Digested Read. [via jason of ricedaddies]
