We learned a new song in primary this week. I was not impressed. It's called “Home,” I think.
“Home is where the father is/with strength and wisdom true.” Great.
Then: “Home is where the mother is/and all the children too.” Um, okay.
I was a little annoyed. We couldn't even get something for moms along the lines of “loving guidance” or even “sweet spirit.”
I know my main “job” is being mom. But the ability to have children is not the only thing that defines me. Perhaps I'm being a bit sensitive, but I feel as though the song sends the message that while dads have other qualities, moms are pretty much just “there.”
