Lately, I’ve been hearing a lot of this: “I am just so grateful for my husband. He works so hard everyday and then takes out the trash, does the dishes, and spends time with the kids. He even babysits them on the weekend so I can run some errands in peace.”
On the one hand, yes. Co-parenting and marriage is HARD. They take dedication and sacrifice and as such anyone who wholeheartedly tackles those commitments deserves kudos. Plus there are some bona fide jerks in this world and it doesn’t hurt to remind yourself that avoiding those bullets is a real blessing.
