SAHD, SAHM, single mum, working mum, gay dad, gay mum, LBGT mums and dads, single dads, stepdad, stepmum, divorced dad, divorced mum. This list is endless when describing what sort of mum or dad you are, although I have very rarely seen the term 'working dad'.

Today the middle child had a birthday party. He sat in his car seat proudly clutching the present that he'd picked out for one of his best friends. As he is marginally more outgoing than his older brother, I had higher expectations than usual.
