You have probably all seen the Mom Song that Anita Renfroe did chronically all the things a Mom say to her kids during the day. If you haven’t, I posted it at the bottom of the post and you’ll want to check it out first.
After posting that viral video, she received lots of e-mails from Dads saying, “What about us?” So she redid her song to give the Dad’s kid interaction for the day. Here it is.
Okay, I know on the YouTube page where I found this people just went berserk blasting Renfroe. I thought this was a hilarious. It’s a joke people. Get over it.
However, Dads. Let’s do better than this. The fact is, whether we are talking about Dads or Moms, the amount of time we spend in meaningful conversation with our kids is probably not anywhere near what it ought to be. Why don’t you ask your kids if they think you spend enough time with them. No, don’t whine to me about your work schedule. Don’t tell me about how busy you are. Just ask your kids if they think you spend enough time with them.
Look, obviously you have adult responsibilities like a job. But don’t forget that one of your first adult responsibilities is your kids. Don’t leave them out in the cold claiming you are really thinking of them as you spend all your time working, watching television, or surfing the net.
Certainly, reading this post is part of your responsibility to your children. But now that you’re done with that, go do something with your kids.
By the way, as I said above, here is the MomSense song. Enjoy.
