Being a stay-at-home dad doesn’t mean I get invited into the Moms Club.
My son has a rare genetic syndrome. That doesn’t mean that I know how to talk about it.
I literally haven’t tried writing a poem since college. But for some reason I felt that I wanted to today. I have no idea how to really do it anymore, but I thought I would try anyway. It seems somewhat juvenile in its style, but that’s kind of where I’m at in my poem-writing abilities apparently. So be it.
I saw this video yesterday and thought I’d share it here. People say lots of things to parents in general that really aren’t thought out very well. They reinforce stereotypes or sexist perspectives. This video addresses some of the many odd and inappropriate things spoken to dads. We’re not all bumbling idiots, you know. This video really isn’t much an exaggeration at all. As a stay at home dad, these are the types of things I experience on a regular basis.
Thank you, Buzzfeed.
