When I'm having a bad day on dad duty, I like to think of all the time-saving, work-reducing, positive ways my 4-year-old son Felix makes my life just a little bit easier. These are the reasons people really have children, the reasons that make it all worthwhile.
There is some psychotic belief that staying home in isolation from adults, cleaning, mopping, washing and keeping the house spotless is truly a luxury. Don't buy into it. You will be on medication faster than you can say, "Boo!"
