There are women who have been fortunate enough to marry a man who loves the kitchen. Well, they all love the kitchen – the eating part! But, I’ve heard that some actually like the cooking part. The rest of us probably have a variety of help – a grill-master, a dishwasher or at the very least someone to order kids around to help.
Really, not many of us have a man who loves to cook for kids. And how can we expect them to. Dads have no time to remember who likes corn and who hates it…. who likes the apple peel and who doesn’t… who wants the crust off the sandwich and who needs it cut out with a football cookie cutter.
I have often heard moms giving their man a hard time (at least to their friends). “He doesn’t help. All they had to eat was “insert single food item here” the entire two days I was gone.”
But, I think this is only done in an attempt to raise our opinions of ourselves and our feeding of kids. Really, with a bit of protein, dairy and some fruits /veggies – they’ll be fine. Especially for a couple of days…
Dads – on this Father’s Day – we’re going to vow to lighten up a bit.
