When a Parent Becomes the Other Child


My Mommyology's Parenting Lessons

Daddy and his "playmate"

When you say you’re a mom, it doesn’t always only refer to your actual children.  Sometimes, and most often, your “eldest child” turns out to be your husband.

Case in point.  Living in the US, generally my husband and I share the chores and the task of parenting.  While I know a lot of the responsibility still lies in the hands of the mom, it’s comforting to know that dad is there too when he’s not at school or at work, most of the time, to lend a helping hand.  That is,until  a PlayStation3 comes along.  Suddenly you have not one child, but two.  And maybe a playmate to boot.

The Moral of the Story: If you want another child instantly, buy a PlayStation3.

I am the mom that I am because of my two wonderful little girls. They teach me everyday.
