First Lesson

If I could impart only a single lesson to prospective parents it would be this: get help!  If your parents or in-laws live in another state, consider relocating.  If you are estranged from them, make up.  If they died, find an Indian Cemetary and bring them back.  Abuse?  Let them have the kids of the sex they don't fancy.

Yeah, two parents can still raise kids on their own in this day and age. Just don't expect it to be pretty.

Six figures from home...

When you're the only father at story-time, or pushing the kids on swings at 2pm, people tend to assume you're just another victim of the "mancession".  I am not.  I'm simply a father of two small boys who really does make six figures a year while working from home.  This arrangement allows me to work 60 hour weeks while still shouldering 35% of the parenting duties.

This is my story.  The names have been changed to protect the cute but not so innocent.
