We have strength of character! If a job’s worth doing, it’s worth doing well; and there is no job on this earth more important than raising a child.
We’re in touch with our emotions. I mean, how can you not be when you’re sole custodian for the most miraculous little being in the history of the world…ever! Plus they make you watch those flaming sad Disney films. “It’s not a tear son, I just got something in my eye”.
We know how to clean shit up, literally! Snot, puke, poop, dribble; and that’s just the self-produced array of matter we know how to tackle.
We’re decisive. Who’s got time to waste when you have a to-do list as long as long as your arm every day? We know what we want and don’t fanny about procrastinating.
Sense of humour. Because, basically, you have to laugh or you’ll cry at times. Let’s face it, if you can’t see the funny side when shit happens, then what’s the point?
We are house proud! Because you can’t afford to be a slob when you have kids in the house. Give the little buggers an inch by setting a bad example, and it’d be carnage. Your house would look like a hoarders graveyard within a week.
We’re sensitive souls. It comes with the territory. There’s nothing more soppy than a man who’s totally fallen in love with his child. Once that side of him has been unlocked, it remains a well to be tapped.
Single dads are resourceful. We are the Swiss Army Knives of the male species.
We exceed expectations. Hey it’s not our fault that there are often very low expectations held of men. We defy stereotypes and forge our own path.
Single dads are fun! You offer us a break from responsibility and we are going to let loose.
