What comes to mind for “caregiver,” a man or a woman? There are many heroic men out there, but let’s face it, more often it’s the female listed in the school nurse’s speed dial. It doesn’t matter if mom is a domestic technician or the CEO of a multinational corporation, she most likely gets the call.
Women are inherent caregivers and act as emotional anchors both in and out of the home. As a mom, your day might include breast feeding, toting the toddler surface-mounted to your pants, comforting nocturnal visitors, chauffeuring teenagers….the list is endless.
Not complaining. You love your partner but at the end of a typical day, there may not be a whole lot left to give. That 911 bootie call may come when you are ready to go off duty and reclaim your body and brain.
Hey guys, we know the messages are mixed. Here’s the challenge: help us move from “I love you often” to “I love you always.” Program us in your redial or get really creative.
