what my husband did on paternity leave...

Instead of bringing me a cup of hot tea, washing dishes, or getting up with the baby in the middle of the night Tim wrote this piece on Obama's incongruous anti-cloning but pro-embryonic stem cell research position currently on the docket at American Thinker.

(just kidding about that washing dishes part, Tim loves a clean sink, but Julia Ellen and I were the only ones awake at 3am)

Congrats on the new baby! Thanks for sharing your husband's article. I posted it on my Facebook page; maybe some of my pro-choice, pro-embryonic stem cell friends will read it! :)

I appreciated your husband's article as well. Posting it on Facebook is a great idea!

P.S. When did the Navy start granting paternity leave?! My experience as a naval officer having 3 kids while on active duty was: if the Navy wanted you to have a kid, they would've issued you one! With the first one I got 4 weeks off, then they decided to be generous and be more in line with the other services, so I got 6 weeks off with the second one. My third child coincided with my resignation date, so I was able to leave the service after my 6 weeks of convalescent leave.

They started paternity leave only about a month ago - 10 days that can be used anytime during the first year. Unfortunately, it isn't retroactive, giving Tim 50 more days of free leave!
