The main reason I wanted to talk about the daddies, partners, other half’s, (whatever you call your man in your life) is because I feel like they don’t get enough credit, especially when you see people complaining how their partners are not very good dads or they don’t do enough for them etc.
I basically just wanted to let you know that not every man is like that, the reason I know this is because Rob (My hubby to be) is in fact one of the kindest, and most caring people I know, I am so grateful to have a man like him take care of both me and our son, he’s definitely a great dad to Logan.
I know I don’t often praise him, but I really should start to tell him how great he’s being more, especially if it’s true, I know it can be hard on the new dad because they’re learning too, in fact the dads need just as much encouragement because it’s not instinctive to them like it us, new mummies.
Having a baby certainly can put a strain on the relationship especially since the man is not “getting any” and has certain “needs”, but to be fair Rob has always respected me and has been very patient and understanding especially since I’ve not had as much of a libido since Logan was born, but it’s getting there, Slowly.
I also wanted to tell you knew mummies and daddies to be, not to worry about whose going to be doing night feeds and whose going to change the poopy nappies because you will fall into a routine and you’ll just automatically work something out, obviously if the dad has paternity leave that’s even better news as he can offer more help while you mums have a much needed rest, however unfortunately I didn’t have such privilege because Rob had just got a new job so wasn’t entitled to paternity leave, so it was hard going from the get go, but you know what nearly 7 months on and I’m not bothered, I’m still alive and Logan’s as happy and healthy as he can be.
Robert Jones (my loving fiance) this paragraph is especially for you, I just wanted to say how amazing you have been over the past 6 and a half months, I know it’s been a very tiring and challenging time for us both, but I wouldn’t change it for the world, and I wouldn’t want anyone else to be the daddy to my children, as soppy as this may be I want the world to know how much I appreciate you, and how much Logan adores you and I know we’ll have a very happy, loving household because, we love each other! And that’s the most important thing!
Keep smiling ~mummytologan
