When you’ve been looking after baby all day, your partner coming home from work is an event to look forward to. In fact you’ve probably counted the hours since lunchtime. I suspect I’m not the only new mum to hand over baby with a sigh of relief as soon as Daddy walks through the door.
In our house Tall Dad takes a very hands on role with the parenting. It’s not something we ever decided, it’s just how it is. We created our little person together and looking after him is our joint responsibility.
That being said, nappy changing is a task I will willingly pass on whenever the opportunity arises.
