Moms are considered the nurturers over dads. Here's a glowing example of how that's true...
"Perfect example in the argument that moms are often the 'nurturer'...not always...but often! We have a little wooden windmill in our yard and one day the wind blew and broke one of the blades off. My husband, 'took charge' and announced that 'he would fix it.' His approach was to go out and snap off one of the other blades to 're-balance' it. I simply thought to myself... 'I hope I never break a leg!'" -- Real Mom
