BusyDads Busier in 2012

No votes yet

As the name would suggest, we at 4BusyDads (being in large part BusyDads ourselves) understand what it means to be a dad in 2012. While it may seem obvious, the sheer chaos of our lives prevents us from fully appreciating the forest for the trees.

Fortunately, the good people at Salary.com* and Insure.com* have taken the time and energy to quantify this harried life with what Insure.com refers to as the "Father's Day Index". This tongue in cheek effort strives to categorize and value the things that dads contribute at home. The results are clear. Don't quit your day job.
