Big news on sports radio today seems to be about the fact that New York Mets 2nd baseman Daniel Murphy has chosen to take the three days alloted to him under his contract for maternity leave.
Some of the comments being made are about the fact that they should have induced labor prior to the season starting. why does he have to be there he cannot breast feed and what is he going to do hold her hand for three days.
Thankfully not all commentators are being jerks and he is getting some support for his decision.
Stilll a double standard on the importance of father and also I think of husbands. While paternity leave was not an opton for DH he did take up to two weeks of regular leave with the birth of each of our DDs and I am so glad that he did.
