I received 10 years of this treatment. I know EXACTLY what this feels like. It’s all good though.
I stopped being defensive after a certain point. Eventually, I learned how to just have fun with the moms at the playgrounds as they got to know me better and they later realized how much cooler I was than their husbands…especially when they found out my profession and how much I listen to them.
Ahhhh…the joys of parenting (as a single dad…with high levels of testosterone).
