Everyone parents differently – that’s a given. What’s also a given is that you’re going to recognize the truth in every single one of these pictures that shows off the ways that moms and dads just have their own, separate way of doing things.
Hey, if it gets done, pick your battles. That’s my motto…most days.
10. The packing ordeal
To be fair, it’s because dad is packing for himself and mom is packing for literally everyone else.
9. How they do quality time
Mom’s way might be more quality, but I’m betting dad’s is more memorable.
I’ve actually had to explain “well-balanced meal” to my husband.
7. How we “treasure” the infant period
Both are valid.
6. Giving kids what they ask for
Mom will feed you even if you don’t care what’s for dinner. Dad…may not.
5. The fact that our kids know where to go for actual help
What if I told you that your father also knows how to get you a drink?
4. Posing for cute pictures
A professional photographer dad is not.
3. Napping – Moms barely sleep as they worry about the kiddo. Dad crashes and figures the drop to the floor isn’t too far.
I mean, they’ll be fine.
First off, mom teaches with hugs and words of wisdom. Second, mom wouldn’t let you have juice cocktail OR Fanta.
1. Bathtime looks…different
Mom gets you clean. Dad gets you messy and then rinses you off with the hose.
