The 11th Annual At-Home Dad Convention

StayathomedadsWe're sorry we didn't hear about it sooner - the 11th Annual At-Home Dad Convention in Kansas City on November 11, 2006 targeting "all the men that have traded in the office for the daily rewards and challenges of at-home parenthood." See the convention homepage here. There's always next year.

An article about the convention shared the story of one of the attendees -- Phillip from Ohio -- a former attorney turned stay-at-home dad. Phillip's wife is also an attorney who has carved herself a niche working with pharmaceutical salesmen on what can and cannot be said to doctors. Both continued to work after the birth of their son, relying on nannies and others for help. However, with the arrival of their second son, the couple decided scaled back spending and moved to one income. Phil said he was a good lawyer but replaceable. His wife had a sought-after skill and a bigger paycheck.
