Holy shit, I cannot believe I have the house all to myself. I was cleaning and trying to pick up before the husband got home, but I decided to binge watch Netflix instead. I usually hear fighting, video games, crying, laughing, and TVs on full blast from the kids! Nothing. It’s so quiet….
My eldest daughter just got back from her dad’s house. She spent a few extra days with him since she is on summer break. She came back in an awful mood and was making her little sister cry and kicking her sister out of her room. I finally talked to her after I got done disciplining her and she said that, “dad yelled at her while she was at his house.” I asked her, “Why?” She said, “because he was trying to play a video game.”
He never sees her and he can’t expect her to play all the time with his other daughter, she’s a baby still. I don’t understand how you can’t just pretend to be a good dad when she’s around? I don’t know… I just don’t want her heart broken like mine was. He doesn’t help support her. I have tried to show him how serious it can get if he doesn’t help support her and he doesn’t care.
My husband has helped me raise her like she was his. She used to fall asleep on his chest as a baby, actually, they would both fall asleep. He is my best friend. He is the most impressive human-being, kind and sweet. He saved us. He has supported her since she was 3 months old and I could not have asked for a better man to raise a family with. He is my knight in shining armor and I am truly lucky!
Anyway, sorry I had to brag. I just can’t believe how polar opposite these dads are. I hope all you dads out there know how important you are to your little girl. I know some men don’t really connect when they have a daughter because they wanted a son or whatever the case. Please, I am telling you all children, no matter their gender, deserve to have a good, kind, and strong daddy in their life.
