    Got a phone call from a radio station (KMPS) and found out that my girlfriend Tiffany submitted me for a contest. Found out I won. LOL.

    Here's the contest. There is a group called Lonestar (yeah, I listen to country music lol) that has a song out called "Mr. Mom". Contest was to tell about your Mr. Mom. Her letter about me won the contest. Get free dinner at the Elliott's Oysterhouse in Seattle and tickets to see Lonestar at the Moore theatre. Shocked the hell outta me. Now, just need to see if my girlfriend can get off work that night to go.

    Thought I'd share. Thought it was funny being called Mr. Mom.

    She's kick my butt for this, but they read it on the radio. LOL

    But this is all of it.

    Hi Stubbs. I would like to nominate my boyfriend Jerry for the Mr. Mom contest. Jerry and I have been together 6 years now(living together 5), and when I first started dating him he made perfectly clear that his 2 kids were the center of his life. He had gone through a bad divorce, at the end of which he had gotten full custody of both children, Mackenzie(4 1/2 at the time) and Bradley(2 at the time). He was working a full time job and taking care of them.

    When I moved in they stayed at home with me. But 2 years ago Jerry sustained and on the job injured and is off work on L&I, so we switched places. I went to work, and he stayed at home. Driving the kids to school, picking them up, packing lunches, tucking them in at night, going to parent/teacher conferences....the WHOLE works. The kids are excelling in school, very happy, and thrilled to have daddy at home(although they say they would like both of us to be home all the time, lol). So now Mackenzie, 10 and Bradley(almost 8) have had Jerry as their Mr. Mom for almost 2 years. Its gonna send our whole world spinning when he goes back to work in January and I am at home again...I surely hope I can remember how to be domestic again and do as good of a job as he has been doing.

    He is the love of my life, and seeing how wonderful of a father he is just makes me love him more:) Thanks for listening.

    Very cool, Jerry! You're probably going to have to shave the beard to pass for a mom though. ;)

    Thanks for the responses.

    Dip, have you been to the schools lately when the kids get out? See quite a few women with about that much facial hair nowadays. :rofl:

    Don't know which part is the best - the contest, your devotion to your kids or learning that you've finally recovered (I know that's been a long haul).

    Congrats and best wishes.
