In Dadaโ€™s Hands

To whoever thinks that a father can’t perform mother’s tasks, you’re absolutely wrong. Call this post “bragging” but yes, I’m really proud to brag about it!

My husband goes to work from 8am to 12nn. Babysitter leaves the house once my husband is home. From that time, his 2nd shift starts. He feeds her lunch. He bathes her when needed. In short, he does everything while I’m not around – like a typical housewife/mother.

If he’s lucky, he’s able to take rest and sleep on his supposed-to-be break time – that is if Deye goes to sleep for at least an hour. Otherwise, he has to stay awake and get back to work at 7pm until God knows what time.

I sometimes get irritated when there are toys scattered around the floor. Or towels/soiled clothes hanging around the bedroom. But deep inside, I’m so thankful that my husband is not the typical-macho-effect-guy who does not do any single household chore.

There’s one thing that I love about him taking care of our daughter -when he fixes her hair.

He has this style – a one-sided hairstyle. When I come home and see my daughter’s hair tied up, it just makes me smile… It’s not perfectly done but the effort fixes it all!

    My daughter absolutely loathes having her hair tied up. Tinatanggal niya parati yung tali. Just like her mommy hehe.

    Fashionistang daddy nga hehe!

    Pag may topak sya, inaalis nya din kaya ginagapos ko ang buhok para di nya maalis! :p

  4. My husband is also the same. He knew how to change diapers, feed our baby and WASH cloth diapers. He loves doing motherly role. Aren’t we lucky to have sweet hubbies?

    Yes, we are very lucky….

  5. During a time when we had no maid and I was still working, husband also had his share of daddy-duties. He took care of our then-only daughter, he cooked the meals, and even washed our clothes. I was so touched when I got home to see our clothes all hung up to dry, and food cooking on the stove.

    Up to this day, he’s the one who goes to the market every Sunday morning… hay. thank God! ๐Ÿ˜€

    My husband does the grocery shopping din. He’s good in that.

    Lucky natin no? ๐Ÿ˜‰
