Nothing says Sissy like a stay at home Mr. Mom. Let me clarify, I am not talking about a man who runs his online biz, or construction biz from the house. I am referring to the piss poor excuse of a sperm donor who lets his wife do the 40 hour 9-5 routine, plus commute, while he so valiantly sits home playing babysitter with the kiddies, thinking he is a hero. Hey, dude, Wifedom is not your kingdom, it’s hers. Yeah, I’ve heard the excuses: well, she brings home more bacon than I ever did. Or, we’re saving money by not having to pay child care. Blah, blah blah.
Truth is, you don’t want to provide for your family. You want all the perks, with none of the responsibilities. How’s that married sex life of yours? I bet not to good. Because even if the Zesty Guy was playing Mr. Mom, it’s still a turnoff. Blimpy, get off the couch, you need to Man Up and get a J.O.B.
So, Cupcake, while you’re waiting for a response to your resumes, go put on some boots and pick up a hammer, or go shoot a bear. Oh, and burn your Obama granny jeans too. Women want a provider, a man who will do all, and whatever it takes, to keep the roof over your noggins. Women are financially creative and will make due with however much you give them. We all prefer more, but we can make do on less, too.
Wifey, how can you keep your mind on your 40 hour a week job, when you are not the one home to watch over your precious children? Every women knows men can’t keep tract of the kiddos for a few hours on a Saturday morning, less alone all week long. The kids? Oh they’re around here somewhere.
Hell, you can’t trust working men to remember to drop off the little tikes at the babysitters, they forget about them and leave them locked in the cars in deadly summer heat. How can a man forget a child in the car? How? Because it is not his job!
Haven’t you noticed that men cannot multi-task like a woman? A woman can have three pots cooking on the stove, one thing in the oven, be folding laundry, and can still tell you where the kids are, and what they are doing.
Whether white collar or blue, men were made by God to be every bit as rough and tough, and down and dirty as they come. Bulls in china closets. Nurturing, and caring is your job, that’s how God pre-programmed women. You, expecting a man to be nurturing, will only be an attempt to push him into a mold he was never created to fit in. They are (thankfully) born without female sensitivities. Wifey, you can’t have it both ways, he is either a working man, or your gay babysitter. God has not graced men for this job, it’s yours. How much is sanity and peace worth? It’s priceless!
