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.

Unexpected things you get used to when you become a parent

Nothing prepares you for becoming a parent.

You can talk to people you know with babies and try to come to terms with the idea of your life being very different but; when your baby is born, when hormones dictate your emotions, when you are recovering from the physical challenge that labour demanded of you and your partner, and when you are introduced to the concept of truly broken sleep, that’s when the reality hits home.

After your bundle of joy crash lands in to your world, some of the changes take a bit of getting used to.
