Hey! Happy Father’s Day to all the dad chumps out there! I would’ve written my post sooner, but we were celebrating the manly arts of breakfast cooking here. My son did the eggs and I did bacon and toast, and we feted my husband the best we could. (Later observances will commence with him blobbing on the sofa all afternoon to watch baseball and eat watermelon. His preferred method of celebration.)
Chump dads, thank you for being the sane parent, for doing the tough single parent gig, and for being good, solid, faithful guys. Infidelity sucks for everyone, but men eat the particular shit sandwich of probably being presumed to be the asshole until proven innocent. Blaming the victim is something all chumps experience, but IMO we’re still loathe to think women don’t act maternally or could ever abandon children. And yet, all the men here are witnesses to the fact that, yep, women can be the same shitty disordered wing nuts men can be. Narcissism isn’t a gender thing.
So to you good men raising kids — have a wonderful day!
How is everyone honoring the good dads in their life today? (And let’s not make this a thread about the dads who suck. We can rant on that the other 364 days.) Tell me about the good guys!
Happy Father’s Day!
(Time to go make some hotdogs for the game…)
