An overwhelming majority, 89%, stated that stay at home dads are cool. 10% felt that moms should be the primary caregivers. I have to say I’m with the majority on this one. I think that if dad staying home works for that family, then have at it! Dads bring a different energy to child raising (at least the ones that I know) and I don’t think that is a bad thing.
Now, we recently got rid of my son’s all-in-one loft bed for a raised bed without the desk/dresser components. He was simply too tall for it, and as his ceiling is not vaulted, was feeling a bit claustrophobic. In fact, he wouldn’t come straight out and tell us that he hated sleeping up there, he kept faking stomach aches and asking to sleep on the couch. Seriously? I thought we were better at communicating than that. But after a few days my husband and I sussed it out. Kids, they kill me. Well, my kids, specifically.
Anyhoo, that left us with needing to buy him a dresser. We took a bit of time deciding which of these routes to go. Which one would you take?
