Happy Father’s Day, especially to those dads who support mommy bloggers. Mine was at Best Buy getting the CD player in my car fixed so I could listen to my new cool CD’s (including the Red Hot Chili Peppers). That also gave me the time to post while my
twins were napping.
These dads and other’s like them value spending time with their kids
(which they do more of because they are married to mommy bloggers).
They also value their wives enough to support them while they pursue a
personal passion. I know many other moms who are also pursuing their
personal passions; whether it is work, volunteer, or hobbies. It is
great to hear stories of their husbands, family, or partners who also
provide support. This support is essential, especially for moms, so
they have that extra time to devote to outside interests. From my own
experience and feedback from friends, this extra time helps moms feel
balanced. Because my husband and I both blog (his blog is behind his
companies firewall), it is also an interest we can share. OK, I can be
sappy since it only happens once a year on fathers day.
So dads with blogging wives: thank you for your support, for your
willingness to work as a team, for helping edit some posts even when
you are tired from a full day of work, for not making us feel bad about
the laundry piling up, for training with us for half marathons, for making us laugh and giving us great experiences to write about, for being the plus one at the BlogHer cocktail party, and most of all for being great dads and husbands.
