Back At It Again; Be a Man Step Up and Help Your Helpmeet

Back At It Again; Be a Man Step Up and Help your helpmeet

New Dad’s listen up. HELP YOUR HELPMEET!

Being a man does not mean not helping your wife, woman or baby mama.

God gave you your wife as a helpmeet to YOUR needs so step up and help her with her needs. She can not and should not raise your baby alone.

I am not here to bash you guys, but I am here to shed some light on how we as Godly men should step up and help.

By helping with your baby does not make you less of a man, it actually makes you more of a man by taking responsibility for your family.

[Tweet “You are fulfilling your role as a helpmeet to your wife.”]

What’s up, guys?

Man is it been a rough couple weeks.

I have to first apologize for not getting anything out to you guys, but as you all probably know, Addie Rose showed up and she has been pretty much-wrecked everyone’s schedule.

I am living off right now, probably about 3 hours of sleep.

She woke up at about 3 am, Mama fed her and she didn’t want to go back to sleep, so I ended up having to rocker her in the recliner.

I am living off of espresso!

I have been thinking about new dads.

Now, this isn’t my first go-around.

This is my third time so I’ve got a little bit of experience under my belt but one of the things that I wanted to talk about was this idea that men can’t help out with babies.

I know a few people who have said to me that, “I don’t change diapers, I don’t feed babies, I don’t do any of that stuff. That’s a woman’s job.”

I disagree.

It took two of you to make a baby and it takes two of you to raise a baby, so if you’re one of those guys I apologize.

I am not trying to be hard on you, I’m just trying to get you to think a different way.

First off, let’s talk about changing diapers.

It’s just a little tiny thing to help out, now mama wakes up several times throughout the night to feed the baby and it’s a little thing for guys to just change a diaper.

Help out.

You know she’s not getting any sleep, neither are you probably.

If she’s getting in and out of bed, you probably aren’t getting any sleep either.

But the reason I’m I mentioned this is God gave you a wife as a helpmeet and what does a help meet mean?

Help meet means she helps you.

18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

The Creation of Woman

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.

Genesis 2:18-25 KJV

She helps you do the things that you can’t do or don’t want to do.

For instance, you and I, as men, we can’t give birth so that’s one thing that God made us not being able to do.
But our helpmeet, which is your woman or wife, she can.

See God designed her different for a reason.

Now does that mean you can’t help her with the baby?

Absolutely not.

That means you can help and you should be helping.

For instance, she wakes up to in the morning to feed the baby because guess what guys you can’t feed the baby either if she’s breastfeeding babies.

This is where you get to step up and help out.

What I mean by helping out is change the diaper.
Burp the baby.

Do something to help take some of the workloads off of her, ie. your her help meet.

God made women and men different because they help each other and complement each other’s weaknesses.

That’s the whole purpose so Step Up, help out and do your part.

Be a helpmeet do the things that she can’t do or needs help doing.

Again this isn’t to bash you guys, it’s just to get you to open up to different thoughts and some different thinking.

Yeah, I know, it’s like “Aw man, that’s the woman’s job … that’s you know…”

Man, not the woman’s job.

Suck it up buttercup.

Why wouldn’t you want to help?

Can you answer me that question?

I mean she helps you with everything that you can’t do.

You don’t want to do your laundry? Guess who does your laundry? Chances are your wife does.

Yeah, I hear the story of, “I go to work and I work 8 hours a day.”

I’m going to tell you right now brothers, that staying at home raising kids… That ain’t a full-time job I want.

And let me tell you right now, that’s a full-time, 24/7 job.

But again she’s a helpmeet.

She is able to do things that you can’t.

Support your helpmeet.

Help your helpmeet help you.

Happy wife, happy life. Remember?

Mama needs sleep, just like you need your sleep.

If she’s up feeding the baby all night, changing diapers and burping the baby she can’t get any rest either.

Mama needs some rest.

All in all, though, it is great.

[Tweet “That new baby smell is like brand new car smell. Can not replace that.”]

Even though she’s keeping me up, that little girl has me wrapped already and she doesn’t even know it.

Anyway, I’ve been working really hard trying to get this documentary of Addie’s arrival at the hospital so I’m sorry I haven’t been able to get stuff out like have been wanting.
