Mommy Moments: Our Hands-on Papa

mommy moments

Although both our pregnancies were unplanned and completely took us by surprise, my husband embraced both with delight and pride.  He wasn’t the type of husband who gave in to my every whim and fancy while I was carrying the children in my womb.  He did explain to me that he just didn’t want to spoil me (But I wanted to be spoiled rotten then! Boohoo!) lest I get used to the attention and became painfully demanding forever (Hmmm…).

Though he isn’t a spoiler, he can not be faulted as a father.  He is a very hands-on Papa to our two toddlers. From the time the children were born, he had had his share of diaper changes (wee-wee only, no poop please!), spit-up clean ups, nurse duty when one of the toddlers is sick, feeding time mess, etcetera, etcetera.  Until now, he helps feed the toddlers during mealtimes, volunteers to bathe them when this mom has a migraine-attack, and offers to babysit when Mama pleads for a day off.   Despite our many arguments about our different views on child discipline, my husband still is, inarguably, the best father my children could ever have.
