It's not really a big secret that Mr. D's been the SAHD during the past schoolyear. We really lucked out that my work schedule was early enough that I could run home and spend about an hour with Mr. D before I took over Baby D time and he would leave to work BYU athletic events.
So let it be known. Baby D has the best dad in the world. Period.
When I have told some people about our "arrangement" I am shocked at some of the reactions-- that he is "too lazy to get a full time job" or a number of extremely hurtful things. Mr. D works harder than any man I have ever know. And how many fathers do you know who would be willing to come home from work after midnight on most days (and sometimes as late as 2 or 3 in the morning), and then have to take care of a baby all day starting at about 7am?
He is my number one support and the best example to me of a stay at home parent.
He is always with a smile on his face and I definitely credit him to being the reason our Baby D is so happy "all the time", as Granny puts it.
