I like to cook, and apparently am not too bad in the kitchen. If I offered to come around and cook a meal - in your house and with your food - and cleaned it all up again on my way out: would there be any takers :eh:

just to give you hard working new parents a break :)


I think you would !!.
We would have loved that back when..

I hear ya with that one!!!

Sign me up! lol

It is a weird old thing, there are lots of support structures out in the world for mums. But the effects on dads is not to be sneezed at either. I'd love to take some parental leave with my partner, but the best thing on offer is 10 days unpaid leave.

A little support goes a long way I think.

WOW.

Honestly, that just brought tears to my eyes bro. Wow, it's so reassuring to know there are people in this world with a heart like that.

:pmob: Forget the heart - I REALLY like cooking, its like my own form of therapy :D and I would of course be 'testing' the food as I prepared (as all good cooks should) - so would in effect also be getting a free meal out of it :paranoid:

I am pretty serious about it as well - would need to work out details on an individual basis, but why not :eh:

its been talked about a bit between myself and my drinking club(with a orcharding problem) as we have all had kids around the same,and tend to be going through the same problems. but it is hard as the "kiwi male" is not ment to talk about tis type of thing.

i was also lucky to have broken my arm two weeks before zoe was born, 4 weeks paid leave through that was great. not the broke bit but that i could spend time getting to know the wee one and help out with the first few weeks of her life when you really don't know what is going on.

and i can even change nappies one handed now to.

:pmob: Hey - I'll cook for solo parent or tag team :) As long as its for a true 'time out' situation not people who are coping well and want a free cook for the night ;)

I mean, seriously: i get a few hours out with interesting people, doing something I like doing, and get a free meal! And you people think there is something wonderful about that? It's a win win - :thumbsup:

(OC - you line something up, we shall be there. Sweet_P and you can play with rug rat and I'll be all domestic in the kitchen)
