bearded housewife

I am one of the most elusive of all mad housewives, the bearded housewife.  In this era of untraditional roles.  I provide for my family with, my cooking, cleaning and kissing skinned knees.
After a long day of changing endless diapers, picking up the living room, and listing to "The Wonder Pets", when the wife gets home from work.  I like to slip into the bathroom with a glass of mad housewife Merlot and check my Facebook status.
It's simple pleasures like this that keep me going day in and day out.  I don't expect to get a day off for about 18 more years.  But if I can have 5 min. to myself, my day is complete.
I prefer the Merlot, because Merlot sounds like pillow, and that reminds me that after making one more sack lunch and dinner.  It'll be time for bed.
Thank you to mad housewife for the beautiful wine.  I must get back to scrubbing color crayon marks off my front door.

Stay at home dad,
Bearded mad housewife.


  1. Ha! This is great =) I was hoping to attract a few of the bearded variety to this contest. I love your story and definitely a fun picture! Thanks so much for joining in the MADness! ~Heather

  2. Awesome MAD HOUSEWIFE! I can attest to his Madness and his bread making skills. This mad dad/wife is a awesome housewife and accomplished cook, diaper do-er, as well as electrician to my farm when I am in desperate need for help. If the public gets a vote, He gets three from Me!

  3. You are surely mad! And not elusively mad, no! You are openly mad...grounded for life...at least you have wine to drink ! I guess your wife is a feminist lady, sorted out from the sixties craze!
    I wish you good luck. For me, to be grounded for life at home is not worth the trouble. I hope you can make the best of it.
