As supportive, progressive and understanding as he can be, staying at home and taking care of our child(ren) is still very much a women's job. It took two different conversations to help him see where I was coming from and be comfortable enough to support my suggestion of our roles. Even though he initially didn't receive the idea very well, he was completely on board after our talk. He even volunteered himself for all sorts of household responsibilities. My partner was more ecstatic than I was about taking care of kids and doing house work!
