A Game of Cat and Bird? 😺🐈🕊️
Top parenting tip - get tough quickly! 🏋️
I woke up this morning to find the holiday house turned into a Zoo! We had a bird flying around one of the rooms, and a cat wandering around downstairs. My father-in-law was out buying bread, so it fell to me to take care of business. 😎
That’s when I realised that I wasn’t being ‘brave’ getting the bird out (as my mother-in-law put it) but moving forward, it would always fall to me to do this sort of thing. The thought crept into my mind that while previously I had a dad who would take care of things for the family, I would now be the dad, and those around me would forever look up to me in order to get them out of tight situations. 🦸♂️
It was a lovely realisation, but also a bit daunting at the same time…
So, if you have things you’re scared of, jobs you normally palm off or just things around the house you don’t usually concider then think again! They will all be coming your way soon enough! Maybe have a chat with your significant other and voice any concerns you have. You never know if they will be willing to do some of the jobs your really hate!
Remember, we’re the dad’s now 😁
