3. Be the mom sometimes.
Similar to #2, but somewhat different.
First off, you and your lady may not have children, and that’s okay. Sub anything in place of children that your partner normally takes care of. You might: take the pet to the vet, cut the pet’s nails, cook, pay some bills, etc.
When it comes to parenting, my children always go to me first for everything. I’m the mother. I kiss and blow on booboos. I always make their sandwiches right, and I’m the one they prefer to bathe and read them stories before bed.
