Funny Exhausted Dad's Post on Being 'Mom for the Day' Goes Viral
When his wife had to go into the hospital, an Australian dad became "mom for a day" and his struggle to keep up has turned into a viral Facebook post.
Brad Kearns' long, and at times profane, description of his tiring day has been shared more than 18,000 times, with many moms commenting and presumably tagging their husbands.
"Today I had to be the mum..." the post began.
Kearns was left by himself looking after two-year-old Knox and six-week-old Finn, who gave him all he could handle and more.
He likened it to a "backwards 100mph roller coaster that takes you through waterfalls of vomit...and lots of tears."
Kearns eventually came to a very simple realization: "I would rather be the dad."
He noted that fathers usually get a break for a long portion of the week when they go off to work.
"Dads get respite for 40+ hours per week under the socially acceptable provisor 'supporting the family' while mum continues doing what women seem to so effortlessly do," he wrote.
What do you think of Kearns' post?
