“This man worked a 13-hour day in 90-degree weather and walked through the door and asked, “I’m home, what can I do to help you?” Yet, these are words I hear from him often.
He is not a “unicorn.” Men like these exist. The kind that wash the dishes after you cook, who do the yard work because he knows you hate it, who work 60+ hour work weeks and still comes home to play with his kids and give his wife a kiss, asking, “What can I do to help?”
Who gets up some nights to change the babies diaper while I get ready for a night feeding, who gives the kids baths and puts them down for bed, who spends his weekends with his family, who cracks a cold one once the kids are down and plays farkle and rummy with his wife.
Leader of the home, equal partner with his wife, provider, protector and hands-on father. I’m so glad I married this man and that he also acknowledges my hard work at home with two kids, nursing, cooking and cleaning. We take care of each other its 50/50 and we are raising our boys to be men, just like their father.
