Dad Life: Take Your Kids to the Mall Park!

Dad Life: Take Your Kids to the Mall Park!

Curt here. I’m the token guest blogger who gets to talk about DAD LIFE. Dads get to have all the fun with their kids, and this is just one of those examples. 

Mall parks are the coup de grâce of dad activities with kids.

  1. They love you for taking them there.
  2. You don’t have to entertain them; other kids play with them.
  3. Other parents will tell you when your kid is wandering.
  4. It’s FREE.
  5. They sleep well at night (or on their way home if you’re out in the evening: easy bedtime!).
  6. Mom stays at home so she gets a break and loves you for it.

Honestly, it’s too simple. Just grab your Daddy Go Bag (see here) and head out the door. Take the bus for an extra level of excitement (see here for tips).

How does Marabou support women?

Moms who used to “lie-in” for forty days now have to pick themselves up within a week to get back to work. Grandmas, sisters and best friends who otherwise would have been there to help a woman transition into motherhood now live too far away and often can’t take time away from their full time job. Household chores and caring for older children fall on the woman who just delivered a new life and whose body needs rest. But we live in a sprawled world and helping hands are plentiful but often too far to be of benefit. 

Marabou Services is a unique gift registry which provides services instead of stuff. Most mom’s get too many onesies, too many baby blankets and not enough helping hands. How can you give you daughter living in Japan married to a Navy sailor a helping hand? How can you lend a hand to your best friend who moved to California? How do you ask for help when none of your family lives near you anymore?

Start a Marabou Gift Registry!

With a Marabou gift registry you can ask for any service you know will be of benefit during postpartum recovery.

Postpartum doulas for a first time mom

House cleanings for moms of multiples

Childcare for moms with older children!

Once your registry is created, add it to any other registry or post it to your Facebook and ask that your friends and family contribute to your postpartum service, rather than buying you more stuff.

More and more moms find they have to figure out postpartum alone. Women don't have the same support like they used to. Is it any wonder why PMDs are on the rise? Women are embittered by the journey through motherhood simply because no one was there to lend a hand.
