  • "First Dude" Todd Palin: Involved Father (Pictures)

    (Scroll down for pictures of Todd Palin with his Children)

    When the folks in the mainstream media talk about Sarah Palin, they emphasize that she has FIVE children!! How could she ever do it!!! They make it seem like she is a single mother and all five of her children are only TWO YEARS OLD!

    Well… Alert the media. Sarah is married to a very capable man who happens to have sacrificed his job to play a larger role in raising their children. I understand they have never hired a full-time babysitter (at least since the last two children were born).

    The Palin family did just fine while Sarah worked as governor. It seems her children were with her when possible, and her husband worked as a full-time dad. It certainly seems like Todd and Sarah Palin know what they are doing.

    And about those FIVE children… Their oldest son, Track, happens to be going to war in Iraq. I think he’s pretty grown up.

    Their oldest daughter, Bristol, happens to be getting married. She seems to be in love and looking forward to getting on with her own life. Read more:

    Willow happens to be thirteen. She is a big girl who is likely a great help around the house.

    Todd and Sarah do have two little ones. Piper is seven, the exact same age as my daughter, and Trig is the baby. Read more:

    I guess the mainstream media believes that conservative women should stay at home. Have they noticed that both Barack Obama AND his wife work fulltime? Don’t they care about the Obama children?

      Evidently, for Governor Palin, every day is Take Your Daughter to Work Day. And she did it without getting a flyer from NOW telling her to do it.

      And now that she has Trig, it’s Take Your Son To Work Day too.

      Thank you for this. I’m enjoying all of your Palin posts, but thank you especially for this one. My very involved husband has been frustrated for days, asking the question, “Where do they think her husband is? Do they think he’s completely useless? Do they think these kids have no father?!”

      We should be lifting up the work of this equally involved, supportive father and husband. I think that would be the greatest blessing that could come out of all this: demonstrating for the world how husband and wife can work together as true partners in the raising of their children, each doing whatever is necessary for the other and for the children.

      I’m a reader and a learner, I have so much to learn(!), but have never commented before now. Thanks for this post! Dads everywhere should be outraged by the press on this one. Thank you for the point that Obama and Mrs. are both working! Thank you, thank you, thank you from a SAHM and a dad that currently has to work a 60+ hr week and still is such an intregal part of his little girl’s life that we just don’t get why people aren’t catching this inconsistency.


    I appreciate you taking the time to comment. Comments may or may not be published.
