It's not easy to be a stay-at-home dad.
But it can be hilarious!
That’s what Chris Illuminati discovered in 2010 after his son was born and he quit his job to play the role of main child-raiser in his family.
It was a challenge, he explains on his official website, Message With a Bottle, which is what prompted Chris to start tacking messages around the home for himself and his wife.
"As a joke (because I've never taken anything in life seriously), I wrote down even the simplest of tasks and pinned it to my bulletin board," Illuminati says. "I forgot all about the note. I also forgot to change the baby."
Now with a son and daughter, Chris has been featured on Good Morning America and become Internet famous for the notes he writes in reference to himself, his kids and his wife (often referred to as “Permanent Roommate”).

It's Almost Better Than Sex
Especially when sex has the possibility of leading to more kids. Yikes!
