Hey, another father of twins!

I don't think of myself as a house-husband, but my situation is much like David's: telecommute four days a week, help out when needed with the kids. It was a struggle at first to convince them that I'm working, and that means I can't be called upon at any time for every little thing--but if one of the kids is screaming, of course I'll respond.

There's a Dilbert about this: he says that just because he's working at home doesn't mean he's on call for little things like killing a spider, which is not an emergency--and suddenly the house is filled with huge spiders.

Or, as the economy improves, you can start looking for a job like mine. I
telecommute 100%, which makes me sort-of like a house-husband. My wife is a
stay-at-home-mom, but when she needs help loading up the twins in the car, I
come downstairs to help her. Or when she takes one out of the tub and needs
someone to watch the other, there I am. It's a pretty neat arrangement. (Who'd
have thought I'd have my dream job by age 27? :o)
