The kids asked dad what he wanted for Father’s Day. He, very honestly, said nothing.
He wanted to relax, chill out, do the things that guys like to do.
The kids wanted him to do all his normal dad chores.
They didn’t understand each others definition of nothing.
It’s hard not to sympathize with both sides.
How do you tell kids that their ideas suck and they should organize better, as well as have the best of intent?
Then tell your husband that he has every right to expect to get a day without a bunch of crap going on and without the kids’ needs first.
How much does it blow to be that part of everything that is more work than it was supposed to be? You’re the squeaky wheel that needs oil. You are the sand that gets in your bathing suit seat. And rubs. RUBS. RUBS!
Y-O-U are the reason why they say they “need a break from it all’.
Happy You Day
