Super Dads

Time Magazine serves up an article about today's fathers and the various roles they play.

As a stay-at-home dad, I appreciated this quote from the article:

"There's a push-pull," says Kevin Lee, 40, a photographer in Salt Lake City, Utah, with two small children and a wife who works part time. "I feel like when I'm with the kids, it's great, and I enjoy that time. But in the back of my mind, I'm always thinking that I've got all these other things to do, like work around the house or job-related work."

For me, the "other things to do" include laundry, dishes, toys, yard-work, and vacuuming, not to mention my "hobby" of listing items on eBay for friends and family. There seems to be no end to it all (especially the laundry), and it's a real chore (pun intended) to separate my mind from those domestic responsibilities while I'm playing and learning with my kids.
