Moms are so awesome, aren’t they? Without them, the world would be filled with wannabe macho men trying to live up to their dads’ expectations. Ever been to a youth soccer game and listen to the parents of a kid? The dad would shout in his gruff man voice, “Come on boy! Kick that ball like I showed you in practice! You could do it!” Mommy’s little voice would chime in, “Go baby, you are doing great! Nice work.”
A dad gets home from work to find his 4-year old has made him a card with drawings that he toiled on for hours. “Daddy look what I made for you!” He shouts excitedly. Dad glances at the thing and thought in his mind, What the heck is this? but says, “Good work son, show it to your mom when she gets home.” Sure enough mommy is quick to gush over her kid’s handiwork. “Awww…that’s so sweet. Look at it!” And that’s why we love em.
Moms recognize their roles and accept it. That’s why when a kid is acting up they would say, “Just you wait until your Dad gets home!” Dads recognize their roles also and play it well. If the child does something nice, Dad would say, “Just wait until your Mom gets home and show it to her.” Because Daddy doesn’t really care about such things that much. He would add in his mind.
So that’s why we love our mothers. They keep us in touch with our feminine sides and let us know that it is ok for grown men to cry. Even if Daddy is watching. We love you Mommy! Have a Happy Mother’s Day!
