Real men change diapers.

James Bond, Ethan Hunt, Jason Bourne, Bruce Wayne, Edward Cullen, Jack Bauer... pish, sissies. Those aren't men.

If you are under the mistaken impression that having abs I could wash my laundry on makes a real man, allow me to correct your very incorrect line of thinking.

Real men face people tougher than anyone holding a gun, while being only half their size.

 

 Real mean wear holes in their jeans from being on the floor to fight the imaginary bad guys.

Real men give horsey rides and start tickle fights, yet understand it is best for his life expectancy to avoid tickling the mommy.

 

Real men know how to change diapers and make bottles. 

Real men know that postpartum means they're going to be buying extra large, extra absorbent, overnight feminine pads... all alone.

 
Real men know the lyrics to bedtime songs, read books, and have special voices for each character.

Real men bear the marks of war in the form of snot covered shoulders and tear soaked shirts.


Real men do things to make their kids happy.

Like playing the princess while in a public place.


I'd like to see James Bond do that!

aw, what a sweet tribute to your hubby! Mine loves to get down and play cars and trains with Liam and definitely did the tea party thing with Robyn when she was younger... now they play basketball together... we have always had a rule that the first person to notice a diaper change was needed did the changing... it works out pretty well for us...

Proud to say I'm married to a real man. He made the kids clean up the living room before pushing the couches together and playing pirates. Guarded the princess and everything.

Hooray for wonderful husbands!!! LOL- wherever we go, my hubby has kids hanging on him. And he's so good at reading stories- he always does accents and voices, and the kids just crack up!

And real men wear dumb t-shirts their wives buy them that read "I Love My BMW....Beautiful Mormon Woman." Or so I've heard.
