A Thank You for Dead-Beat Dad's? - Page 2
A single mother posed a question! Seemingly the father of her child, who claimed he wanted to be a part of the child's life but never came around and never did anything for the child, brought a pack of diapers and a box of wipes to her. By this time the child was three months old, and this is the most he has contributed. In need, the mother accepts but is upset with the lack of care from the father. Having asked four days earlier for the diapers, they are not the brand she asked for (these give the baby a rash) and the wipes are scented which she explained irritated the baby. A relative seeing the fathers contribution ask the mother did you say THANK YOU? Should I have said thank you for something he is supposed to be doing anyway? Some may say yes she should because it is the thought that counts but some may agree that thanking someone for half stepping is not at all realistic.
As for the mothers who's first thought is for their children, and not just an after thought i say thank you. You were never meant to be a mother and a father.
