There are a few things you deserve to hear, so here they are:

Thank you for being the default parent.

Thank you for rearranging your life around the kids’ appointments, school functions, illnesses, etc.

Thank you for keeping the whole family’s calendar in your head and making sure it all gets done, come hell or high water.

Thank you for coping with and taking action on the kids’ struggles when others are too overwhelmed to do so.

Thank you for the sacrifices you’ve made from your body, your job, your education, and your finances for the kids.

Thank you for all the things you do for your family that make you irreplaceable.
