Neatly captured the mundanity of office life and difference in the attitude towards overweight men to overweight women eg. your friends tell you to take up a sport rather than telling you you should hide because you are socially unacceptable and altogether hideous. Well written and nicely paced. For me, could have done with a tiny bit more introspection at the beginning to really make me care about the person but as a stream of thought development - it worked very well.
A very masculine read - more emotional development of the characters beyond how many children they have would make it more accessible for female readers. Apart from that, nicely drawn and being used to male interpretations of 'economotion' I would read more from this author.
As a non parent - I appreciated the fact that almost everything is dictated by an attached child however, a break in the narrative for character development independent of family would have made this more readable in the early pages. Having said that - overall this conveyed implicit emotion in the course of the action and so i have to say it was well handled and described the difficulties of parenthood very well. Really enjoyed the use of technology and pants.
I really like your writing voice, but a less trained reader would be confused at some of the erratic punctuation and might not realise it is colloquial charm - if I was you i would do one of three things - either add more punctuation, get an editor to do it for you or make the voice/accent even stronger - dropping Gs etc eg. drippin' instead of dripping to strengthen the effect. At the moment you seem a bit shy and are half writing conventionally and half in your excellent voice - and if I was you I would emphasise the voice because it works really well.
