A Day in the Life of Our Multi-Generational Household

The Cheesecake home is a multi-generational household – there are three adults, two kids and one dog. My mom lives with us full-time to help Mr. Cheesecake, who is a SAHD, take care of the kids. I am a WOHM and work four days a week. My commute to and from work is tolerable (45 […]


Lessons Learned Through a Temporary Stay at Home Dad

Shortly after M was born, Mac Daddy’s work situation started to go very downhill. To make a long, complicated story short, there was a problem with the company’s finances, and Mac Daddy and his coworkers were being paid infrequently and very late, if at all.

I recently shared an update from my perspective on Mr. H staying at home with Miss H, but Mr. H and I thought it would be interesting to share some insight on what it’s like as a SAHD from his point of view! Hello! I’m Mrs. H’s husband, and two days a week I’m with […]


Update: Mr. H as a Work at Home Dad

I posted while I was pregnant about how Mr. H was going to be a WAHD (work at home dad). And I realized I never updated on how things have worked out for us (a little over 1 year since I went back to work. How has it been this long?!). As a refresher, I […]

Pride and Prejudice

Another dispatch from Mr. Jacks as he reflects on his time as a SAHD! Since I’m hanging up the diaper bag as a SAHD (at least for now), I though it would be a good time to write about the prejudices that SAHDs face every day. People have gross assumptions about men and how they take care […]
