Dad's Get More Credit!

August 30, 2016

Recently in Ohio, a Father was enjoying breakfast with his small Son at Cracker Barrel. He noticed an older couple staring at them the entire time, smiling. He thought it was strange until he got to his car and noticed a note on his windshield that read “Today your meal is on my wife and me. Enjoy that baby boy as long as God intends. Keep doing what you’re doing. — The Masons.” He certainly appreciated the note, saying “There’s a lot of guys I know that aren’t taking care of their kids,” said Smith. “To show that not all of us are out here being gang bangers. Some of us are out here being fathers.”

I am fortunate to have a super involved husband who enjoys Daddy Daughter Dates often at Cracker Barrel (what's the deal with Dad's and Cracker Barrel?). He always has stories of how nice and complementary people are of him when they see him out with our two-year-old Olivia. He's even mentioned from time to time and some women will actually flirt with him!

Clay also has similar stories of outings with his Bitty Feller. Recently they were in the grocery store and the deli made such a fuss that they even offered Bitty Feller cheese samples. 

All I'm saying... is no one makes a big deal when they see ME (the Mom) out with my little one. No one leaves notes on my car or gives us cheese samples! What up with that?? Are Dad's really that much cuter?
