LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND

LEAVE NO MAN BEHIND

Hello and welcome to a strange new world. You have traveled far through the desert, only to be met time and again by one empty oasis after another. You are lost and alone, wandering, wondering if someone, anyone, knows how you feel. And just when you think you can't go on, and no one could possibly understand your struggle, a hand reaches out to you, lifts you to your feet, and carries you to the promised land. He feeds you knowledge, shelters you from the self-righteous (and the ridiculous), and provides you with the tools you need to survive in this brave new world. You are a stranger in a strange land, but you are not alone. Let him be your guide. Follow closely as you travel together on this adventure of a lifetime. For now, you are a foreigner to "Fatherhood" but soon YOU will be the master of this realm.

NO YOU DIDN'T?: THE BATTLE FOR WHO GETS TO CLAIM DOMESTIC SUPREMACY- MOM OR DAD?


"SURVEY SAYS..."
As if I haven't had to defend myself before when it comes to my abilities (or capabilities, as the case may be) of "parenting" my child, someone had to come up with a study to slam me and my fellow first-time fathers, yet again. Well, www.cozi.com (enjoy your shout out from me because it will be your last) you have your numbers (separated in two columns - pink and blue- just to show how outdated your world views are) and I have mine.

So, for the folks at home, here's what you (cozi.com) came up with...

And, here's the truth...

Unless you physically went to each and every one of these people's houses (proper english? don't know? don't care), you don't know jack! My wife can "claim" all she wants that she out-parents me (not that it should be a competition), but it doesn't mean it's (always) true. Hell, for all you know, your wife "claimed" she only slept with 3 people before you met her, but somehow, when the Jerry Macguire-esqe bachelorette video surfaced, those numbers were closer to 13 or 30. So if a woman can lie about the number of sexual partner's she's had, under-valuing the actual number, what's to stop her from over-valuing the number of loads of laundry she does on a weekly basis to skew a survey in her favor. Not much.

So, c'mon guys, let's hear from you... Tell us who really does the cooking, and the laundry, and the home repair, and the shovelling, and the mowing, and the dirty deed of cleaning up the dog doo from the backyard. What are the numbers really like in YOUR house?
