Why one mum thinks her husband is a better mother than her.
Dads have an innate ability for idiocy. They can throw further, jump higher and run faster. Mind you, it’s not that hard to throw further, jump higher or run faster than me. Just saying.
Dads have cool ideas for adventures. Adventuring is cool. Dads can do realistic light saber sound effects. They have bachelor degrees in the art of air guitar. They have endless stamina for silly voices and, indeed, an endless ream of silly voices from which to choose.
Dads, and this is a big one, can grow MOUSTACHES. And moustaches? Cool.
I’ve come to the conclusion that good dads may actually be good dads because they think like kids. They have limited attention spans and can flit from one gloriously fun activity to the next without any thought. I might spend lengthy periods meticulously setting up textas and crayons, little super hero masks for sticking on little perfectly cut out people, barn yard sticker sheets for stickering, googly eyes and pipecleaner arms. All to be swiped from the table after just five minutes (sob sob)….Dads! Well dads are at the ready to leap into the next activity as soon as the kids are.
