Sure, Mother's Day is nice, but I think that dads sometimes get treated as the underdogs of the family.
Mom is always sensible.
Mom always thinks ahead.
Mom is the practical one.
But father's are important, too. We look out for the safety of our kids but we also throw caution to the wind, thinking it's better to show a life lesson after the fact than to shield our kids from the experience.
Dad's are there, no matter what. We always see our children as children, and we have our kids' back through thick and thin.
And so, on Father's Day, it's okay to be spoiled, to let our kids fawn over us. Let them make us breakfast in bed. So they messed up the kitchen: that's okay.
For all the dads out there, I hope you had a great day, yesterday. I hope yesterday was the most important day for you, when you were not the underdog of the family, but the centre of it.
