Black Dad Spotlight: Taking a walk in mommy’s shoes
Devale Ellis will never question his wife again.
He revealed in an Instagram video last week that he always asks what’s taking so long to get the children ready. “NEVER AGAIN,” he vowed.
@khadeeniam went to get a facial this morning so it was my responsibility to get the boys ready and out the house this morning. 2 words!!! NEVER AGAIN. My frustration level is on 1000 right now and it’s hot so I got sweat dripping down my back. ??? #DevalesTruth #TheEllises #ItsHot #AndIForgotToPutOnDeoderant #LeStruggal #KairoLooksWorried #HeDeadAssAskedWhereKhadeenWas
“It took me an hour and a half to get both these kids ready,” he said, holding his youngest, Kairo, while talking into the camera.
He detailed the morning struggle of getting his two boys ready — from successfully dressing the kids but a poop taking them back to Square 1 to forgetting to put on his own clothes.
Ellis even got a little exercise by “burning, like, 1,500 calories.”
He humorously paid homage to every day mothers and the work it takes to make it look easy.
We hope you got some rest!
As for you wife: Go, Queen.
