At Home Dads Make Parenting More of a Guy Thing

That's the headline in today's Wall Street Journal article about stay at home dads.

"At-home dads aren't trying to be perfect moms, says a recent study in the Journal of Consumer Research. Instead, they take pride in letting their children take more risks on the playground, compared with their spouses. They tend to jettison daily routines in favor of spontaneous adventures with the kids. And many use technology or DIY skills to squeeze household budgets, or find shortcuts through projects and chores, says the study, based on interviews, observation of father-child outings and an analysis of thousands of pages of at-home dads' blogs and online commentary."

Um, OK. I'm guessing they haven't read my blog. Only the first eight words apply to me.
