who wants to hear from a hunky aussie bloke? (a "daddy chats" vlog)

{This is the final post of the Moms Who Work series.}

Have you met this man yet? The one with the cute Australian accent?

He is my husband... my hunk-o-spunk.

He is the man I adore more than any other man on earth. He looked like this (bright-eyed and suntanned) when we took our trip to Spain last year. (This photo still makes me drool.)

{It's no wonder we came home with an extra family member from that trip... our little souvenir named Levi.}

In wrapping up this series, I asked Ryan to comment on the subject of Moms Who Work. (I didn't ask Levi to comment... but he did anyway.)

This is what they had to say...

What a treasure he is... wouldn't you agree? (Oh, and Levi too.) And what a breath of fresh air to hear from a man with a well-balanced perspective on motherhood (in my opinion at least).

I hope you enjoyed this little video... my first ever vlog. (Well, Ryan's first-ever to be precise.)

We're going to be doing "Daddy Chats" vlogs every now and then on the Memos so that you can hear from a dad's perspective on different parenting topics. So this is the first of (hopefully) many times you'll get to check out my man, hear some good daddy wisdom, and swoon over his good looks and adorable Aussie accent.

Oh, and just so you know... Ryan got all gadgety with this video and added in the intro and closing, complete with the little blurbs of music. I told him to set the bar a little lower so I wouldn't have to measure up next time... but he insisted. He's gadgety like that. And creative. (Plus he'll take any excuse to "play" on his macbook that he can get.) So thanks for that babe. It looks awesome. 

Dear mommy-friends, this brings the Moms Who Work series to a close. What stood out to you most from this series? What is your "take home" message?

grateful to be a mom who works,

Love it. The accent doesn't hurt. I think this was a great series. Bottom line we all work. Anyone who has a child works. Thanks for doing this.

Great comments from your husband {and Levi, too}. He's right, mom's who work at home are just as important as anyone else in the work force! Great to hear a man's perspective. He did a good jon editing the video, too!! What a perfect way to end the series.

what a great way to close out this series and what an awesome hubby you have:). I'll have to do a vlog with my hubs sometime. That was too cool and it just goes to show you how great their feedback is and how much they value the stay at home mom job. Not all guys do granted but, mine does and it sounds like yours does as well. Cute to here Levi's input!

This was great! I love what your hubby had to say. It was fun to see what a father thinks and he spoke it so well. Being a mom is hard work and I think it has been shown through all the blogs in the series. Great job.

Vlog! Excellent! And so brilliant to add this at the end! Absolutely Brilliant!!!

I love that you asked the questions you asked- and I respect his answers greatly! Well done you two! Gosh, I respect both of you for the work you're doing in Australia as well as what you're doing for moms everywhere!!!

I know an Aussie man myself (not married to him though *lol*, as this one is an ex but also close friend) and those accents... oooh boy!
But he made some excellent points and I think what he says can go for both genders!

oh I am SO glad you found me so that I could find you! I love your blog, & whenever I get a little reminiscent of my days down under I will be back to watch this video ;)

makes me want to eat a kebab while pushing my pram & say "how ya goin?"

I will be back often.

You are right! What a treasure they are! I didn't get to read every post in this series (I will do that eventually) but think the topic is definitely very relevant. I've been a SAHM and now I'm a working mom, everyone's siutation is different and I think it's important that we all respect exactly how hard motherhood is, whether you SAH or Work outside the home. I loved hearing a man's perspective!

What an incredible series Adrial! I love it, and the hunky vlog. This is the second time today I've come across this issue on blogs and I was about to write my own post. Seeing your series convinced me. I'm putting something together to post this week and I'll link back!!

Thanks for finding me again. I missed you and I'll be around more, promise!

Well done both of you. Great Daddy work, we need more testosterone on the parenting blogosphere! Thank him for us

Wow, it was really fun to watch your little guy interacting with his daddy. I had a few good laughs. I also had tears in my eyes listening to Ryan share his heart on motherhood and stay at home mums. It was just the encouragement I needed to hear today. Sometimes I struggle with thoughts that because I am home with our son and not working to contribute financially that I am not a successful member of society. I know this is not truth and our whole family is incredibly blessed with this privelege, but I battle with the lies none the less. So Thank You so much for sharing this.
