I’m a parent too…

Stellar head tilt

btw, just a side rant. Why do Mom’s have the market on parenting? Going through parenting websites and flipping through parenting books, it’s always assumed that I’m a woman.

I get email updates from baby center, after registering that I was male, telling me about what’s going on with your breasts, or how to get your husband more involved.

And then there’s the awkwardness when I take Stellar to the children’s play area in Chapters Bookstore. There’s usually a crowd of random women laughing it up as they watch over their kids. I walk in and have a seat, and there’s a sudden silence. Shh.. there’s a male here.

Of course, as I walk about, more often than not, I usually overhear them ridiculing their husbands.

I know there’s nothing like a mother’s love, but plenty of dad’s got game too!

    You Know It Bro!

    Dad’s need a little more love.

    Absolutely. I can tell you right now that this is going to drive me crazy someday…

    So true!! We were looking into Daddy play group`s for when I go on parental leave. The only groups a friend could find were for fathers who were forced into groups because of criminal behaviour or self-destructive tendencies.

    I`m going to bug Lon while he is supposed to be working!
