Being a mom is one of the most exhausting and exhilarating experiences ever. On one hand, you are so tired from doing all the things. On the other, you are overjoyed by the amazing children you get to parent. There are things every mom needs from the father of their children. Let me share some of what your wife needs most from you.
A few weeks ago I left the house for a weekend camp with a ministry I’m part of. While I was gone I left the children with my husband. When I came home he was very aggravated and I didn’t understand why. I asked him fully expecting him to complain about something the kids did. Instead he told me he was aggravated with well meaning friends and family. You see, as he walked through church he was asked countless times “Are you surviving? Are you keeping the kids alive?” He told me that it really bothered him because he is just as much their father as I am their mother. I have been thinking about this for the past few weeks and he is completely right.
