Summary

MEN: Ever wonder about stay-at-home dads? What in the name of testosterone do they DOall day with those kids? I mean, are they really men at all, or are they some strange, invasive alien species, sent to Earth to defy and destroy all gender stereotypes? WOMEN: Ever dream about stay-at-home dads? Do they really wash clothes, pick up after themselves, take great care of your kids, and have dinner waiting for you when you get home? There must be horrible, secret downside that they don't warn you about, right?

Learn what motivates a man to pursue this noble occupation. Discover the countless joys and periodic sorrows that come with raising a family. Witness the life and family of Scott Benner, author, activist, humorist, and 12-year stay-at-home dad.

Scott's colloquial wisdom will warm your heart while it challenges your ideas about parenting and gender roles in today's household. Written from a truly unique point of view in a style both poignant and playful, Life Is Short, Laundry Is Eternalis an honest portrait of the modern family.
