Stay-at-home dads going back to work

The day of the stay-at-home dad may be ending. Or maybe not. There used to be 1.5 million such households--now it's down to 1.45 million.

In many cases, this is definitional--some dads work part-time but still are the primary caregivers of the kids.

The mothers also tend to make more. This used to be 4% of cases and is now 23%.

Also--say moms and dads--families are finding all sorts of new ways to take care of children.

In other words, this is getting creative!
