Leaving the mob in just over a year, got a new (18 days old) baby now and wondering what my options are. Been talking with Mrs DF and once we pay off al our loans credit cards etc we will still have quite a sum of gratuity left and the income of my pension. Mrs DF is better paid and we are thinking of me becoming full time stay at home dad whilst Mrs DF stays in work (only does 3 days at the office a week so I could do part time work) Anyone doing this or tried it? Are there advantages (no child care to pay etc) or disadvantages (stuck in the house a lot) that make it a really good or bad idea. We will look seriously when I have just 6 months left to go. Any thoughts anyone?
