I LOVE THIS PIECE. I’ve had a barely written Medium draft going for months about the different standards for moms and dads (people were always amazed my husband came to prenatal appointments. Um, I went too, ya know), but like you quoted Groff here, I just didn’t feel like preaching to the mom choir. So I love reading this perspective from a dad. So awesome. Sharing!
