Temporarily, at least, we find ourselves in the position where I will be the one mostly working and he will be the one mostly home. One thing he is determined to take over is the kids' schooling. I'm really excited for him, ready to be as supportive as I'd always hoped he would be, and curious to see if finally he'll understand what I've been dealing with all those times we were trying to do "real" homeschool and it was making me crazy.

Actually, I gotta hand it to my hubby- he is much better at motivating the children and keeping them busy than I've ever been. I'm more the type that I prefer to be left alone to get my own work done.. and I expect them to be the same way and get frustrated when it doesn't work that way with them. He is perfectly comfortable being the "manager" and telling them what needs to be done and then just expecting them to do it. I think he's going to be a brilliant SAHD.

How exciting! My DH works part time nights and I work full time days so he does most of the schooling here, too. I get the materials ready the night before and he does the rest.

WOW! I think ... no... I KNOW mine would go crazy. He just doesn't have the patience at all (and I don't mean to offend him, because he'll be the first to admit it).

My hubby does quite a bit when he's on night shift and up when we're doing school, but I don't know how he'd do on his own! He's been a SAHD and loved it, but before our kids were school-aged. Good luck to your DH! I hope it goes well!
