A Day In The Life……!

Of a full-time pastor and part-time stay-at-home dad!

For the first three years of our baby boy’s life, I spent a lot of time creating a learning environment at home so that I could work full-time and home school part-time.

Then, we came across a terrific Pre-K 3 program that I could not pass up. Since our son was learning at a rapid speed with my homeschooling, I knew that he would blossom even more in a more structured learning environment. This Pre-K program is only a half day program which would require someone to be home with him for the rest of the day. That is where Dad stepped in.

We were lucky that the Lord blessed us to be able to have hubby leave his part-time job and begin pastoring full-time and participate with our son due to his flexible schedule. It makes me smile when I see their quality time together.

A typical day would be:

1. Reviewing school work

2. Play time

3. Snack/Dinner

4. Bath time

5. Story time and/or T.V. time

6. Outings to the park

7. PTL meetings

8. Doctor’s visits

9. Haircut

10. And whatever else is needed

Yes, a dad can do it!!! And do it well!!!
