Yeah, where is the dad!?? Oh, yeah, he is at work earning the money for the candles, cake and frosting, gas for the car, clothes to wear, food on the table, roof over the head and to pay bills and utilities, not to mention travel and vacations, sports activities for the kids, extra-curricular classes and visits to the zoo and museums, etc. etc. Dads provide and protect, mothers nurture and this is a nurturing situation which happened during the day. If it happened on Saturday or Sunday, there's a good chance Dad was mowing the yard, doing home repairs, playing basketball (any kind of ball) with the older kids keeping them out of the way while Mom was busy getting ready for the party. Maybe he was even cleaning out the car so there would be room for the cake and everyone so they could go to the party.
Don't be so hard on your husband. Find his strengths and dwell on that.

Thank you so very much for this article. I will use parts of it (if I may) in my lesson in High Priest on Sunday on Gordon B. Hinkley's lesson number 11, Home the Basis of a Righteous Life.
And where is Dad in this picture? Let's share the ownership of good parenting. If Mom is overwhelmed, what can Dad do to help mitigate the situation before it escalates to this point?
