Title: SAHD Board
Post by: Keith on April 09, 2006, 11:27:08 AM
This is the place for all of our SAHD to discuss the importance of being a SAHD.   Anything related to SAHD's can go here.. 

Looking for a moderator for this group and would prefer them to be a SAHD.   Either post here or PM me.   Thanks.

Maybe it's just a little early in the morning for me, but what is SAHD?

I'm a SAHD too. I was working but inorder to get my youngest son's therapy, one of us had to quit our jobs. Since my wife was making more than me and a better chance of going somewhere in her job we decided that I stay home (also my job was aggravating an injury I had and everyday afer work was torture.)

Anyway, I get to be the domestic godhead as well as the regular dad stuff I'm supposed to do around here. So, inorder to keep myself out of trouble I'm working on a couple of internet sites (I'm not gonna post them here -- at least not yet as I didn't come here to SPAM you guys) as well but they are just in the zygote stage right now.

Anyway, I'll likely visit here often; so after y'all get to know me and the slot for moderator in this section is still open -- I'd be happy to help out.

Ok, on to the next subject now....

i'm a sahd for about 6 months now, and coming up on the end of 6 month unemployment, i have a daughter, and a 7 week preggo wife, but I am the only income.  I had to turn down a new job b/c it was too far, I wouldn't get paid for 4 weeks and it would only be a 40 hr weeks pay, and then two weeks later i would get a big check.  But the problem is that no benefits, and rent is due, so i have to tell unemployment it was too far.  Wish me luck and hope i can get and extension.  :up:

I've been a stay at home dad for 7 years and rite before I was planning on gettn a day job we got prego again. Now I work 7-8 hhours on fri and sat nights at a nightclub. My biggest worry was that my kids would have some sort of issues and it would all b my fault but my oldest is 8 and in the top of her class(as much as a 2nd and 3rd grader can b) so I guess Im doing good with the kids

Thats awesome Lawrence.  I hope that I can get my boy on track with everything he needs. 

I've been a SAHD for 4 months now, unemployed for about 5.  I was lucky enough to be a manager at Circuit City when they went under.  It was a good company to be with actually.  I enjoyed it.

Anyway, my wife still made more than I so we decided that I would stay home. 

Gonna start looking into becoming a student again since I, like many others, have a degree that I will not be using.  Thinking of looking into x-ray tech, specializing in CAT scans and MRI's.  I've always been interested in the brain and maybe that will get me closer than what I am doing now.

Oh man, that has to be pretty sweet.  Are there high demands to keep the house clean all the time?  I wouldn't say I have high demands cause my boy is a  handful right now, but there are certain expectations of course.

there are certain expectations, but ill be the first one to say they are pretty easy things to do and with out anyone here it's pretty easy to keep the house clean. the one urge i have been fighting is with videogames. it would be so easy to just sit and play games all day :laugh2:

Haha.  I hear that man.  I would totally do that.  I got in trouble doing that on my days off before we had a kid.  I could only imagine if that was my only thing to do that if I didn't do it my wife would be pissed.  She hates video games though so if I spent most of my day doing that she would not be happy to say the least haha.
