“Like a boss!” We have all used this phrase when someone exceeds or nails something. I think being a mom is hard, but I don’t think Dads get enough recognition sometimes. I have two jobs. Wife and Mama. Andy has three jobs. Husband, Dad, and his job that pays the bills and provides for our home. He also takes on the stress of managing our money. I have the luxury of being able to just ask, “hey hun can I buy this?”
Every home is so different and you just have to find what works for your family. For our family Andy is the boss man and I actually wouldn’t want it any other way. I’m old school! I think it’s important to let the kids know that Mama and Daddy both say “no” though. “Go ask your Daddy” puts all the blame on them if they say no. Although Daddy might have the last word, I support his decisions and stand by him in agreement. “Daddy and Mama both agree this ok or not ok.”
I’m still new at this Mom gig and I know there will come a time that Daddy thinks the girls are ready for something that I might not necessarily think they are. That’s when decision-making gets hard and it’s a little bit scary to trust Dad’s final decision. Luckily, Andy is very considerate of this mama’s heart! Hah! I think I have to also be considerate of his views as well though! What are some things that help keep your family going strong?!
