It could also be an acronym for stay away hairy dingleberries but that story will have to be a different day.
So I've been a stay-at-home daddy for a long time.
Well not anymore.
I would love to know your initial reaction to that last sentence.
If I was reader of this blog, I would assume that Mrs. Shife had finally kicked me out of the house because she got sick of having 3 children at home.
But fortunately that's not the case.
I got a job.
Besides staying at home with the kids, I also have freelanced for a few companies.
One of of those clients presented me with an opportunity that I could not pass up.
They asked me to come interview to see if I would be interested in working with them on a more permanent basis and if it would be a good fit.
And I liked it.
It's a great company with a casual working environment, and they offered good pay, a flexible schedule, and I get to work with a lot of cool, creative people.
Also, with the flexible schedule, Mrs. Shife and I have been able to work it out so that at least one of us will be home with the kids while the other is working.
I feel extremely grateful and fortunate for the opportunity, and that we're able to still be there for Kyle and Hayden. Oh and Tank too.
My first day was this week, and it was rough leaving the kids at home because I have been at home with them their entire lives but I knew they were in great hands and in the end it will benefit them just as much.
Yep that was my week.
How was your's?
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
