This Guy Thought Stay-At-Home Moms Did Nothing All Day

Hi Dr. Laura...
I saw this article and thought you would LOVE it! Enjoy!   Thank you for all that you do.  - Taura
Daddy Fishkins realized something in the recent past that so many people will never understand: the life of a stay-at-home mom. He, like many others, thought it was a life of leisure and essentially doing whatever you want. That is, until he experienced it for himself:
I owe an apology to women everywhere. Specifically, to stay at home moms. I used to be like a lot of men who have this notion that mothers who stay home with the kids all day are either not pulling their weight, or are just sitting around doing nothing the entire day. In the past, I would often get agitated with my wife when certain things around the house didn't get done by the time I got home from work. I was guilty of thinking more than once that "it must be nice to sit around all day and watch TV".

How wrong was I? Dead wrong.
