Father’s Day

I was such a mush face this Father’s Day! I don’t know why but every single commercial/Facebook post made me tear up.  I think it’s because I’ve had a full year to appreciate just how hard parenthood is for the other side. There are so many blog posts, ecards, tweets etc about how hard motherhood is, but I want to give a shout out to the dads out there.

No, men don’t have to deal with being pregnant.  No, they don’t have to give birth.  But let’s give them a hand for putting up with us during pregnancy and birth!  I know I wasn’t a peach during either- crying at the drop of a hat, crazy cravings at 2:00 AM, and oh the things I yelled at my husband as I pushed Huddy out (sorry honey!)!  So thank you dads, for putting up with us during the hormone extremes. 
For the dad’s that work: thank you.  We may roll our eyes when you say you’ve had a rough day at work- probably because we’ve been thrown up on, chased a naked and peeing everywhere toddler, and can’t even go to the bathroom without an interruption, much less eat a meal.  We imagine you eating a peaceful lunch, and going to the bathroom whenever you want.  So it’s not you, it’s us. And deep down we know you’d rather be spending time with your family, but it’s easy to grudge you the quiet free time we think you get to enjoy.  So know that we do love, respect and cherish all the hard work you put in to support your family. 
To the dads that stay home: cheers and hugs to you!  It’s just as noble and important of a job and we love you for sacrificing your career to stay home for our children.  Thank you for all that you do.
So whether you’re a stay-at-home or a businessman, Happy Father’s Day.  Thank you for being a great example for our children, and for all the hard work you put in day and day out to provide for them.  We love you!
