Why are all the moms female?
3/6/2007 4:40:35 PM
So I was dropping my 12-year old off at an after-school activity the other day, my sedan pulling up behind a line of vans, when he posed a question. "Dad," he began, "why are all the moms female?" I laughed at this, both innocent and deep remark. Since I'm Mr. Mom in our household, I knew exactly what he meant. I mean, I'm the male mom. I have been pretty much since I left the Washington Post on 1/1/04 - the beneficiary of a buyout opportunity and a supportive wife with health insurance - to strike out on my own as a more-or-less fulltime freelance writer and kid-schlepper. My daily "writing life" lasts until approximately 3 p.m., when the kids come home from school. Then I mentally leave one job for another, as study hall monitor, homework helper, chauffeur, food shopper, etc. Since my son's prescient remark in the drop-off line, I've been musing a lot about this bifurcated life and wondering if my situation is unique or just not on the media's radar screen. Well, as a former collague used to say, I am the media, Buster. So I herewith lift the veil on the secret life of the stay-at-home Dad who also happens to work from home for a living. And I am wondering, is there anyone else under this tent?
