At Home Dad: With Five Baby Mommas!!
On the Thursday before Easter in 2007, I called Sgt. 1st Class Kevin Askew, the recruiter for the 28th Combat Aviation Brigade, and started the process of re-enlisting in the Army. That chapter of my life will end in just over a month.
Earlier this week, one of my Conservative friends asked me what I was going to do now that I was no longer working and was leaving the Army. I told him I was going to be a stay-at-home Dad receiving a government check: Social Security.
He quickly said I earned my government check from working and it's not like I had kids with five different women.
As soon as he said it I burst out, "Yes I do!! My six kids have five Baby Mommas!" In addition to my two biological daughters, I have a step daughter, an adopted daughter and two adopted sons. They are all legally my kids, but they all have different mothers. My six kids really do have five Baby Mommas.
And that is my post-Army career.
