Mom v Dad.
It is said that women are from Venus and men are from Mars because there is an incredible difference in the mindset of men and women; it's almost as if they came from two separate distinct planets. The differences between being a Mommy and being a Daddy can be pretty obvious. In fact, moms and dads usually have a totally different style of taking care or raising their kids. 

For example: 

1. MEALTIMES.

I'm hungry!
Mommy:

  • Carefully select a type of grain, a root vegetable, a green leafy vegetable and a type of meat. Boil a porridge with balanced nutrition and also good in taste. 
  • Plan, prepare and cook LO's meals so he/she can eat at proper times.
  • When food arrives, strap LO into the high chair and cut up food into smaller pieces for LO, before touching her own food.
Daddy: 

  • Rice? Checked! Veggie? Checked! Meat? Checked! Fruit? Checked! All into one pot = a balanced and healthy meal. Awesome!
  • Watch TV/browse the internet/play game and when it's time for LO to eat, start cooking.
  • When food arrives, dig in. Om, nom, nom. 

2. BATHING/WASHING.

Mommy: 

  • This is all about getting cleaned in the fastest and shortest time possible. Forget about taking hot long showers or soaking in hot tubs with a face mask on. Everything needs to be done before the LO starts drawing on the walls, pulling the entire toilet roll to play 'mummy' or stuff anything down the toilet bowl.
Daddy:

  • Nice, long showers. There's even time to read, browse the internet or watch videos on the phone while doing 'business'. Just like before. 

3. SLEEP. 

Mommy: 

  • Lack of sleep, almost ALL the time.
  • Think of the stuffs that need to be done, and what to cook for LO tomorrow, before going to sleep.
  • Wakes up at the slightest sniffle or cough.
Daddy:

  • Goes to bed and snores through it all.

4. TV.

Mommy:

  • Use TV to distract LO in order to get things done. 
  • If LO is naughty, no TV.
Daddy: 

  • Watch and relax with LO.
  • If LO is naughty, no TV, EXCEPT, say, Game of Thrones reruns, because Daddy wants to watch. 

5. DRESSING UP FOR LO.

Mommy: 

  • Find a dress or top, with matching bottom, matching hair accessories, matching socks and shoes.

Daddy: 

  • As long as there's a top, a bottom, socks and shoes, done. Good to go.

6. HAIR STYLING FOR LO. 

Mommy: 

Hair bands, hair clips, rubberbands etc etc.
Daddy:
..........

  • Let's see... Punk? Milkmaid? Dragon Ball? Lion? 

7. PLAY/SPENDING TIME WITH LO.

Mommy: 

  • Reading, play airplane, peek-a-boo, snuggling, hugs and kisses.
Daddy: 

  • Tossing LO into the air, play airplane WHILE doing a 100 m dash, make scary faces or laughs to frighten LO, make a video of it and then replay to have a good laugh.

8. KID ASKING FOR PERMISSION TO GO, SAY, SWIMMING.

Mommy: 
  • "From what time til what time? With who? Where? Make sure your homework is done before going, OK?"
Daddy: 

  •  "OK." 

This post may sound utterly unfair to some dads... No offense, but, it is meant for mommies who can, perhaps, relate to some of the things mentioned and then have a good laugh about it (:P). Well, I'm sure there are many good daddies out there, whereby the situations are different. All in all, whether you are a mom or dad, you are the best parent for your kids, that's for sure. Cheers!
