In honor of Father’s Day, Two Peds in a Pod sends out a salute to dads.
We salute the dads sent to the grocery store at midnight after the little kids are in bed.
We salute the dads who show up in our offices first thing Saturday morning with a feverish child while birthday party/holiday dinner/ grandparent anniversary celebration preparations go on at home.
We salute the dads who run the weekend errands while their partners go for a long run.
We salute the dads who, when called, immediately drive the teens home from a party- no questions asked.
We salute the dads who make the elaborate chocolate chip pancake and waffle extravaganzas after a sleep over party.
We salute the dads who don’t pay to “opt out” of volunteer duties on a sports team and grab their wheel barrows to prepare muddy fields for play.
We salute the dads who help build the larger-than-life school project and then drive it to school in the pouring rain.
We salute the dads who carry their kids (no matter how old) when they are too tired to walk.
Happy Father’s Day!
Naline Lai, MD and Julie Kardos, MD
