"Not that I know of, no."
"But what about the dads? Why aren't they thanking dads, too?"
"That's a really good question. How does that make you feel?"
"Kind of sad and mad. Dads take care of kids, too. Like Ryan. Ryan's dad takes care of him and Dad takes us to swimming lessons every week."
Clearly this commercial was trying to reach me - the blogging mom who works from home and wants her children to GO FOR IT! GO FORTH! DREAM BIG! But watching it with my son who is as excited to become a father one day as he is to become an architect, and my husband, who is AS involved in our children's caretaking as I am, I am once again reminded of how men's contributions as caretakers are often blatantly disregarded.
Kind of sad and mad.
"Okay. And then maybe next time they can thank dads, too?"
"That would be cool, right?"
