Why it Works for Us

Mr. Burgher is an incredible Stay at Home Dad, and we are so lucky for that. Take today for example. Work has been a marathon for me, and working on photos, the blog, and ‘lil Miss A’s school folder have really taken a back burner. It was a book fair day, but I figured I’d just order her some books via the book fair’s website; however, the school called Mr. Burgher and asked him if he wanted to run money up to the school. He was able to turn right around and take some cash to her. He then executed getting brakes on the truck and healing his not feeling so well self. What a day.

While I hate that I am missing a lot of the day to day moments with the kids, I am so glad he’s getting to experience this life with them. He does the laundry and will even help me pack my lunch. We’re working on a “savings spreadsheet” to show him just how much his work couponing is doing for us, plus, there’s the fact that we don’t have to shell out about $1200 a month on day care. What’s not to love?

This article from Yahoo speaks perfectly to why having Mr. Burgher as a SAHD works for us. Sure, it might not work for every family, but we’re lucky we can. Mr. Burgher, I can’t say it enough, but thank you!

One thought on “Why it Works for Us”

  1. Y’know, I read this and am increasingly jealous of your situation. I would love to be the SAHD and let Elizabeth have a career. Not that I don’t love my own career, but I also really cherish the time I have with my girls. He is a wonderful father and mate, I’m sure, but we already knew that because he is who he is. I think we all knew he would fit into his new role perfectly before it even started. Some people would see his state in life as being less than perfect and the term SAHD as offensive… I would see it as an honor 🙂
