Is it too early to crown Scott Douglas Father of the Year?
We mean no offense to the guy who recreated his daughter’s modeling photos in hilarious fashion.
But scroll down to find out why Douglas has gone viral…
It all started with wife Kate Douglas, who explains to Us Weekly that she was recently having a terrible day.
Because two-year-old son Fraser went ahead and dumped two gallons of water on the carpet, while also decorating the walls with red permanent marker and refusing to get dressed.
Oh, and he put paint in the fish tank.
Moreover, five-year old son Spencer could not stop melting down.
“Spencer was feeling very fragile and needed constant reassuring and cuddles,” the stay-at-home mom from Newcastle, Australia said.
Fast forward to later that afternoon at the doctor’s office… where the toddlers crawled under and over chairs, argued in the waiting room toys and wrestled non-stop.
"People were glaring at us,” says Douglas. “But there was nothing I could do to get them to stop… I felt so defeated. This wasn’t just one off day. This is every day."
The husband and father of two wrote a Facebook tribute to his stay-at-home wife that went quickly viral after popular blogger Constance Hall shared the post to her page on Monday.
It reads as follows:
Even though today was hard and you feel unappreciated or unsure you made a difference in their lives, this is how your day really went.
Your sons woke from their nice warm beds that have been lovingly washed and made by you. They ate breakfast that was organized a week ago when you wrote out the shopping list.
You packed a lunch box for one to go to daycare … whilst balancing another on your leg, arm, shoulders.
You dropped Spencer off at daycare where you sat for an hour comforting him because he was having a bad day, letting him know mum will always be there.
You returned home where you spent a day with a 2 year old, holding conversations and toilet training, teaching him how to make his way from toddler to a big boy.
When you see a bad day, I see an amazing woman who never calls in sick, never quits, never turns her back on the hard days and who has the power to go to bed knowing it will all happen again tomorrow.
You are an amazing and fabulous mother.
As of this writing, Scott’s post has been Liked over 50,000 times and it has received over 4,000 comments.
Most of the comments are from other mothers who can relate to Kate’s frame of mind.
"Tears flowing from reading this. I’ve had one of those days today,” wrote one mom, while another added:
“I so wish I’d read something like this when kids were small … I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have doubted my worth as much."
Despite her complaining, Kate does make it to clear to Us Weekly that she would not change a thing.
She tells the magazine:
“I get to see my boys doing things for the first time, I get a million cuddles every day, even if that comes with a big snotty kiss.
"I get the most random ‘I love you’s,’ and I get that beautiful connection that grows strong every day.”
