Not sure what exactly led me to make the crazy decision to be a Stay-At-Home-Dad (SAHD), but I did so…and I have no regrets!
My wife Margaret, daughter Bethany Rose, and I left London, England for sunny California in March 2012. Bethany, or “Bpoo” (short for Bethypoo) was seven months old, oblivious to the chaos involved with an international move. How lucky for her!
After serving 12 years in the US Air Force and three years with the American Embassy London’s IT department, I finally decided it was the right time to continue with education while being a SAHD. This will be easy, I thought to myself…
…and immediately discovered that maybe this new gig might be a tad bit difficult! Bpoo, it seems, enjoyed keeping me on my toes with her wacky personality and fussy ways. I’m sure many SAHDs have felt exactly the same way, and wondered who in my new neighborhood was in the same situation.
It’s been an exciting ride since relocating to Petaluma, and I hope to meet others who have exciting stories to share.
