Happy Mother's Day

Behind this blogging father stands a woman who works much Much MUCH harder than he does. She wakes up earlier, gets up more often at night, is forced to leave her children at home, and then, as a reward, gets to hear people say her son's behavior is a great testament to his father's dedication.

I don't stop the people who say that. It's a nice thing to hear, after all. Being a stay at home father is a challenge, and now that we have two children, it's twice as challenging (even as it is twice as rewarding).

But as this is Mother's Day, I should probably come out and admit the truth. The boy is happy because she makes him happy. He's well behaved because he looks up to her. He's healthy because she makes sure he eats well. And he has a great sense of humor because she's so easy going.

And as for the new girl, I can't take credit for any of that. Well, maybe the face.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there.

And by the way, Rick sent me a link to his site, The Mommy Song. Enjoy his video.
