I think it's great your husband stays home! It would be fair to say the assumption of the mother staying home is based on history - that is most usually the case.

Well we have a SAHD in our family:) He's been at home full time with the twins (now 4) since they were 2 and a bit. We have an almost 8 week old son now too so once I go back to work next month, he'll have a new routine!


There are quite a few SAHD's in our neck of the woods.

I think it's weird and my dad was a SAHD in my older years (junior high +) . I just couldn't be married to a man that wanted to SAH. He's got to be the providor.

Ha ha too funny. Personally, I think a SAHP is providing for their family.

The "they" was mostly his Dad, I think because whenever we went over there his dad would ask (pre-baby) where he was working.. etc work type questions.

Why does the dad have to be the provider?
