A Really Super Awesome BIG Announcement

You might be wondering why I'm wearing a pink cape. It's because I have 80% girls and the boy chose green lantern.
This is a blogger. Just a blogger. We can’t show you his face. His grin is too big and might weird you out.

So you know how I’m a blogger who also happens to be a banker (with a ‘b’)? Well in three weeks that will change.

We were driving home from the Gold Coast a week ago when Tracey said she wanted to talk to me about my quitting work at the bank altogether.

“Okay,” I said.

“I just think you can focus on your blog and the doing housework,” she said earnestly, building up her argument. “And I really need more time for editing.”

“I said okay,” I repeated.

“I thought you meant okay you’ll listen.”

“I meant okay I’ll quit.”

“Well, that was easy.”

“Exactly what I’m thinking,” I grinned.

We’ve been transitioning me for about a year from full time to 4 days to 3, and stocking up on geeky tees, as my wife’s photography business kicked up a notch and this blog has been consistently paying for itself, with a little beer money to boot.

So that’s it. In less than a month I will officially be a Stay At Home Dad (the capitals are apparently super important) because Tracey’s rather sensibly decided she wants me home all the time – I tell people as a sex slave, but she tells people it’s for housework and school runs.

I’m hoping there’s some middle ground involved.

Bring on the next super adventure, I say!

Why a pink cape? I needed the S (for SAHD, obviously) plus the fact I have 80% girls and the boy chose Green Lantern.
