The insult to mums, of course, is the suggestion that dads should somehow be celebrated for achieving basic tasks when they get no such recognition.
Yup I agree entirely. My wife and I talk about this at least weekly. People rave that I show up to figure skating and can name the jumps my kid is learning. This is expected of my wife though, and she is a skating coach, but none of the other moms congratulate each other for the things they marvel at with me.
First, I’m not that awesome.
Second, stop setting the bar so damn low for dad. He is better than that.
