There are a few sayings that I really like, mostly because they tend to get to the heart of the matter and usually give a different perspective on things. One of those that I like has to do with parenting (especially for fathers). As a father myself, I have fallen into this trap a couple of times. When my wife wants to go out, I end up babysitting the kids (at least that is how I usually put it). But one day, my wife said to me, “Look, you aren’t babysitting, you’re parenting. You aren’t doing me a favor, you’re just doing your job.”
Wow. Burned. But in a good way, you know?
