A Day at Home Without Kids: Mom versus Dad

7:30 am

Mom: Wow, it’s just me here. I guess I should take this opportunity to clean a bit.

Dad: Whoa, it’s just me here. I can play all the M-rated video games I want!

8:30 am

Mom: Well, I cleaned a bunch. Maybe I should run a few errands, those are easier without the kids.

Dad: *Eyes glued to the TV screen*

10:00 am

Mom: Hmm, my errands are done. This house is quiet. Do I read a book? Maybe watch some HGTV? Do laundry?

Dad: *Eyes glued to the TV screen*

11:30 am

Mom: I’m hungry. I’ll find something to eat that my kids don’t like.

Dad: I’m hungry, but I’m so engrossed in my game that I already forgot that I’m hungry. I’ll eat later.

1:30 pm

Mom: This is actually kind of boring. Did I spend this much time by myself before kids? I’ll fold some laundry.

Dad: This is awesome. I haven’t had this much time on my own in months!

3:00 pm

Mom: Maybe I should pick up the kids early…I feel bad that I’ve been home all day and they are at daycare.

Dad: Hmm, maybe I can pick up the kids late today and finish this level…

Dad does do things like this. Maybe he needs more personal time to physically recover.
