Friday Review - Recovering from Mother's Day
May 13, 2022 Episode 120

Last weekend was Mother's Day, and I HOPE you treated the mother of your children (or your OWN mother) to a wonderful weekend.

In our house we typically we let mom sleep in, I cook crepes with nutella, I get the kids ready for the day, we go to church, do brunch, and then mom gets to do whatever she wants the rest of the day while I take care of the kids.  Cards are made, little gifts are provided, and I hope we do enough to show my wife that she is appreciated.

After doing all of these things, I could not help but be surprised at hearing the WIDE variety of things dads do (or don't do) for their wife on Mother's Day.  

First off, this is NOT a judgement show.  I recognize that everyone treats holidays in different ways and fashions, so don't jump down my throat after listening in.  

HOWEVER - I do see this day as a great opportunity to teach our kids how to show our loved ones we care for the.  YES we should show this person our appreciation more than once a year, but it is a great time to model the behaviors you hope your kids will one day portray as well.

Listen in as I discuss my thoughts on this.  And I do mention I am recovering - because I am tired.  Essentially soloing parenting all weekend was exhausting.  TONS of props to all of you single parents out there.  You are SAINTS.  I'm going to go take a nap now.  

Remember to SUBSCRIBE and LEAVE A REVIEW!  I want to be able to help as many dads and parents out there, and I can't do it without YOUR help!
