When it comes to working parents, the dynamics of family life is often complicated and hard to sort out. The house jobs need to be shared amongst the two in a way that both are able to cope with their lives and also, not feel overwhelmed by the responsibilities. And if there's a child in the house, these dynamics only get more complicated. As such, it is very easy to lose your cool about matters and get fed up by the way life is, and that's exactly what happened to Katie Spence Pugh, whose husband is a farmer. She too felt exhausted by how her husband was never around, and in that frustration, she sent him a text. But what happened next has to be the sweetest realizations ever.
Check it out!
With both partners being equally tied up by work, it's often difficult to sort out the dynamics of how the house is to be run. And having a kid in the house only makes matters tougher.
It's important for the partners to sort out the dynamics to the best of their ability so that the responsibilities are properly divided amongst the two.
Katie is one of those who felt exhausted by how her husband was always at work and had so less time to spend with her and the family.
A Farmer's job is often underappreciated, although many hold immense respect for it, for obvious reasons. Farming is an exhausting job and requires a lot of time and effort, and so, it's quite understandable that the husband couldn't make time to spend with his family.
And one fine day, she sent him a text telling him how she felt about him working so much and not being there for his family.
Katie snapped this picture that day after her husband got back from work. This sight opened her eyes to who really was making the larger sacrifices around here, and so, she took this picture and posted it on Instagram and Facebook, with a heartwarming paragraph of her realization.
Isn't it just the sweetest realization ever?
