Smile Hello from Orange County, CA

Hi everyone,

I can't believe I just found this web site, after 14 years as a stay at home dad something like this shows up. I live and do what I do in Orange County, CA.

Any other stay at home dads in Orange County?

It appears from all the various topics I've read over the years there is one general theme that exists as a stay at home dad, we are terribly discriminated against in many ways and way under represented in main stream society through the media.

Welcome. I've gone 6 years on the job and never had an issue. I've seen plenty of idiotic women do some pretty stupid things though. LOL.

Welcome! I've been at this for 7 years now and only noticed that the first couple of years. After that I stopped caring about what others thought, mostly because other things started getting us weird looks.

Welcome to the site.

People in OC look at you strange if you're driving a domestic vehicle, don't they?

You've brought back memories of three trips to Irvine. One of those trips had me camped out in Fashion Island's Marriott for two weeks.

I think my avatar from the first post after his says it all HF. It has been over 48 hours since his initial post. I think y'all have been duped. I did not vote. It took this alleged SAHD of 14 years almost a decade to find this site yet he knew how to set up a poll on his first post? Maybe he did not put it in his favorites? I think there was an ulterior motive here.
