It should be noted that this is not the first time Mr. Mom's death has been announced. Apparently previous reports were somewhat exaggerated because, well, we are still talking about him right now, aren't we?
Will this be the moment when fathers finally listen? Combined as it is with every other social trend, is this what it will take to change the roles of fathers into what we've been hoping for and hinting at for years?
A parent's biggest challenge -- and privilege -- is to watch these moments and try to make the most of them before they slip away. But those moments are just as important at 5, 10 and 15 as they are at five months, and it's not just Moms who bear this responsibility.
