rearing up

Happy Hump Day!!! I have to say I’m pretty damn proud to still look like this at 30 weeks.  I’ve gained about 22 lbs so far and there’s still a tiny gap left. haha Everyone knows I’ll be working hard to get that back after delivery.  How am I doing for 30 weeks?  XOXO

Haha. Ha. Ha. 

I just read an article about a dad who had to be a parent for a day. 

It was supposed to be funny but it only made me wonder: why do people think it’s adorable and heartwarming to read or watch a video clip of father trying to “fill in” and be a parent?

Like what is so endearing about a society that has held the bar so low for men that when fathers actually try (for a day or long enough for a video or pic) to be a parent, it’s like “oh my god, this is so adorable!”?

Even in commercials, we excuse their inability to parent. Anytime you see a pair of parents, there goes the dad, “Uh-hyuk, oh geez, I dunno honey. I no good at nuthin.”

I mean, what’s the point of having kids with someone who isn’t willing to rise to the occasion on a daily basis and put in the work needed to raise a child?
