I just had a conversation with my hubby last weekend about how I felt Dads deserve many more props than they get.
There are so many stereotypes out there for different kinds of people and I’ve never been one to refer to them (at least, I try very hard not to) because for every “x” people that fall into that category, there are “y” people that don’t and those stereotypes can hurt!
Lately, my ears have been perked up to several different conversations about Dads. These conversations are between women complaining about their husbands, dance moms talking about dance dads, and moms complaining about the father of their children.
See, here’s the thing…
Men will be men and Women will be women
We are different creatures, therefore we have behave differently, think differently and have different ways of doing things. I believe, this is one of the things that make us attracted to one another in our relationships.
With those differences comes frustrations, but is it really fair to put all Dads in the same bucket or all men or all boyfriends? I don’t believe so and the answer as to why is very simply.
Like I mentioned above, for every (potentially larger) number of men/dads/boyfriends that fall into that bucket there are a few (if not almost equal) number that don’t. Let’s not focus on the negative here. Let’s focus on the positive.
Now, I do see this through a different lens because I am not married to a “typical man” so perhaps my judgement on this matter is skewed, however because I know that not all men are the same, that is why I feel this way.
Anyhow, the point of all of this is that…
Dads are people too!
The father of my children, my wonderful hubby, is a hard working individual, he loves our children unconditionally and he tries his very best, which is all I could ask for! Does he have his faults, absolutely! But, so do I and dare I say that I might even have more than him.
See, that’s the thing…us women, we aren’t perfect either and just like women can stand around talking about the men in their lives, guys can do equally the same thing.
So, this Father’s Day, let’s celebrate the Dads in our lives. Whether it be your Dad or the father of your children, celebrate them and let them know how much they matter. Show your appreciation for all the little and big things that they do for you and for your children. They are important and they deserve credit where credit is due.
Thanks to my hubby for taking out the garbage today!
I truly appreciate it!
