Drone equals Dad

Five ways in which being a stay-at-home dad is exactly like working in the office:

- Co-workers with the maturity of three-year-olds (or less)

- Weekends rule!

- Unable to enjoy any significant amount of quiet, self-reflective personal time without someone banging on the bathroom door

- Having to repeat myself. Having to repeat myself. Having to repeat myself. Having to...etc.

- A constant nagging fear that the people I'm in charge of will realize I have no idea what I'm doing

Drone over Dad

Five things I miss about working in the office now that I'm a stay-at-home dad:

- Starting sentences with words other than "No".

- You can think a co-worker is hot without burning in Hell. (Not applicable in all states)

- Payday.

- A feeling of accomplishment other than "Well, everybody's still alive." (Wait, what am I talking about? I've never had that in the office, either.)

- Being relatively sure that the brown stain on my shirt is coffee.
