Tribute to the Dads that support Mommy Bloggers

Originally posted to the Silicon Valley Moms Blog

Happy Father's Day, especially to those dads who support mommy bloggers.  Pamela's husband dealt with a tantrum so she could blog today. Mine  was at Best Buy getting the CD player in my car fixed so I could listen to my new cool CD's (including the Red Hot Chili Peppers).  That also gave me the time to post while my twins were napping.

These dads and other's like them value spending time with their kids (which they do more of because they are married to mommy bloggers). They also value their wives enough to support them while they pursue a personal passion. I know many other moms who are also pursuing their personal passions; whether it is work, volunteer, or hobbies. It is great to hear stories of their husbands, family, or partners who also provide support.  This support is essential, especially for moms, so they have that extra time to devote to outside interests. From my own experience and feedback from friends, this extra time helps moms feel balanced. Because my husband and I both blog (his blog is behind his companies firewall), it is also an interest we can share. OK, I can be sappy since it only happens once a year on fathers day.

So dads with blogging wives: thank you for your support, for your willingness to work as a team, for helping edit some posts even when you are tired from a full day of work, for not making us feel bad about the laundry piling up, for training with us for half marathons, for making us laugh and giving us great experiences to write about, for being the plus one at the BlogHer cocktail party, and most of all for being great dads and husbands.

Here is a Silicon Valley (high tech) Father's Day Card to all of you. As Mir from WCS said "Dads, we dig you" . Or as Cape Buffalo said "Dads Rock ".
