Happy Father’s Day…. Mom?

In my youth, I can remember hearing the phrase, “I’m the mother AND the father.”  Impregnated yourself, huh?  And exactly HOW does that work?

While I can understand the thought process behind this statement, it is ultimately incorrect, as a woman CANNOT do a man’s job in parenting.  Mothers and fathers think differently and approach circumstances from different angles.  If it takes two people to MAKE a child, why do we as a society think one person can cover all the bases of both sexes?

In addition, why do we glorify single parenthood?  Being a single parent was NEVER in my plans, but it was caused by my lack of discretion and in all honesty….. My lack of common sense. We don’t want to admit it, but most of the time, we know that the person we’re with aren’t supposed to be in our lives in certain capacities.

Here’s what I don’t get, though. We’ll tell a single mother Happy Father’s Day, but you don’t hear a single father being told Happy Mother’s Day.  You know why?  Because it’s stupid.  Plain and simple.  A man cannot empathize with his teenage daughter going through puberty because he’s never experienced it.  He can’t tell her how it feels to carry a life within her womb, nor how to manage her desire to nurture even those who need to be released.  Just the same, there are a number of things that a mother can’t teach her son.  But to go even farther, there are some things that each parent can’t teach their children of the same sex!  My mom can’t tell me how men think, and my dad can’t tell my brothers how to please a woman.  Truth be told, many men don’t have that right until a woman teaches them.

All I’m saying is NO ONE is the mother and the father.
