Suffer the Fathers: Why is it that so many father's are given the task of bringing their newborn babies in for their first set of immunizations? It's a surprisingly common practice. Usually the father either gets sent by himself, or he's brought along so the mother can make a quick exit when it's time to give the shots, usually exclaiming as she leaves, "I just can't stand to watch!" As if fathers' hearts are hardened against the suffering of their children, while mothers' hearts are only full of tender love.
Here's wishing a Happy Father's Day to all you misunderstood, suffering fathers who sacrifice so much for the good of the family. posted by Sydney on
