Yesterday on Surviving Motherhood it was about something or other.... I can't really even remember what it was. Oh, that's right -- it was about getting dads involved. They gave the age old advice that the way the Dad's going to do it is not the way YOU would do it-- but it's fine. I learned that advice pretty early on from a friend of mine. I've always held it dear to my heart. As long as the child's not in danger -- let the dad do his thing. So, for that particular part of the show I didn't find anything enlightening.
But I get really emotional when I watch that show -- and I'm not sure why. I think the fact that moms are learning how to be better moms is something thats tender for me. I mean, I am not a cryer... but it gets me on Shalom in the Home (Drew and I love Shmoole). I just love that on TV we're realizing that all marriages have problems, both big and small and that there are ways to work them out. And no, all you freaks out there, I am not pregnant, this is something that's been going on probably since I had kids.
Parents being good parents, it's a tender thing.
P.S. Does anyone have the recipe for Texas Sheet Cake? My friend Elyse used to make it in college and I LOVED it... and now I wanted to share the love with my own family.
