Almost every time I take all 4 (soon to be 5) of our kids somewhere by myself I get the same response. “you are brave to do that as most dads would not.”

While I appreciate the compliment it deeply concerns me that a Dad taking his multiple kids places is not perceived as normal.

Moms: Give the dad’s time to do it and take some time for your self knowing we are going to do things slightly different than you and probably feed them junk food.

Dads: It is not easy but we must do it. You will be tired afterwards but the reward is so worth it as time alone with Dad is special. They’ll remember and want it and it will become easier with time.
