Top 10 Reasons Why Moms Need Dads

Moms are no doubt amazing at taking on the main role of child-rearing in most families. Our bodies change to accommodate the growing child, produce milk after the child is born, and survive on minimal hours of sleep. And dads just donate the sperm and are done with it? However, after millions of years of evolution, dads are still around, and for good reasons beyond just the sperm. Let's give credit where credit is due. Ladies, remember these reasons next time the toilet seat is left up and appreciate all the things dads do that are often taken for granted!

  1. Mowing and watering the lawn, weed-wacking action, trimming bushes and any renegade plant-life in the yards.
  2. Squishing or evacuating spiders, ants, mosquitos, and any unwelcome guests
  3. Taking out the trash and compost material
  4. Doing odd jobs around the house like fixing a leaky faucet, painting a wall, or installing a 3-way light switch
  5. Playing with the baby so mom can take a nap or take a shower
  6. Fixing the computer when the hard-drive fries or reconciling internet issues
  7. Doing most of the driving and carrying in and out the car seat which with ever increasing weight
  8. Moving heavy objects (rocker/glider, book shelf, bags of top soil, you name it...)
  9. Giving mom back massages (even though he needs a massage himself too)
  10. Praying blessings on our family and living out God's will

  1. Love this! It's always important to be grateful...but sometimes it's so hard to remember all these things when you're exhausted!! Thanks for this post! Yay dads!

  2. Thanks Elizabeth! Often times moms feel under appreciated, but it can happen to anybody. Babies and life can surely be exhausting, but definitely rewarding too. Both parents should say thanks early and often to keep a healthy relationship!
