One mom has had enough of dads making a big deal about a cold, and she made a video that has taken the internet by storm.
As just about everyone knows, dads know how to make a big deal when they get even remotely sick, and one mom who made a funny video about it has gone viral. Meredith Masony, 37, created a spoof video last year that compared the differences between men and women who have to deal with a cold, and as flu season ramps up her video is getting new attention.
The video was published on the “That’s Inappropriate” parenting blog, and so far it’s gotten 25 million hits on Facebook, as well as another 1 million on YouTube. At the bottom of this article we’ve embedded the video, which is entitled “The Man Cold Vs The Mom Cold.”
In an interview with Popsugar, Masony said she saw how her own husband handled a cold and it inspired her to make the spoof. “There are no sick days for Moms,” she wrote in the caption for the video. “Men, on the other hand, seem to turn into children when they get a cold. Does your man suffer the ‘Man Cold’ when he is sick?”
