And so bonus/promotion/pay rise season is here again, and Mama Toh and I were discussing how much income we need monthly for me to become a full-time househusband, which has been my wish ever since we had a kid.

Well the discussion was pretty much one-sided, with Mama Toh shutting me up with a conclusive statement that she will never allow me to be a househusband.

I wept in my heart for a while, but lit up when she sort of insinuated, ‘unless you still have money coming in somehow’. All is not lost afterall!


Full-time with these two? Anytime!

Presented with this sliver of hope, I proceeded to spend a good 30 minutes of my day fantasizing about what my daily schedule will look like should I really fulfil my wish of being a stay-home father.

With Mama Toh’s blessings, of course. An with an income stream somehow, of course.

5 a.m. – Wake up for a quick workout
5.30 a.m. – Shower and meditate
6 a.m. – Work on income stream 1 (whatever that is)
6.45 a.m. – Prepare breakfast for the family and wake kids up
7.45 a.m. – Send kids to school and Mama Toh to work
8.30 a.m. – Put clothes to wash and vacuum/mop the floor
9.45 a.m. – Grocery shop at the supermarket
10.30 a.m. – Casual reading
11.30 a.m. – Prepare a quick and cheap lunch for one (me)
1 p.m. – Work on income stream 2 (whatever that is)
3 p.m. – Go for a short jog
4 p.m. – Any residual housework
5 p.m. – Pick kids up from school

There you have it, the perfect day of a househusband.


Make it happen!
