I thought I would share Daddies day out yesterday.

We're into the 2nd week of me being at work and Ben being a full time Daddy.

He took bub to a mates but had to come home she was not happy that Daddy was spending more time talking to Russ! As soon as they hit the footpath to come home she slept the whole way home, she cried 1/2 way there which made Russ skin crawl apparently biggrin.gif ben decided 'yes Russ will be a lonely old man' lol

Ben walked 1/2 way home with 3 kids from the Special School who befriended him on the way, cute! He did cop some strange looks though from some people.

Last night he told BIL, SIL and me that 'its near impossible to get the baby washing, the dishes, wash blankets, wash our clothes, put lunch together, cook lunch, eat lunch, play with bubby, fold and find time to have a drink without someone asking to play all day!

Sil who has been a full time single parent for 3 years & expecting No 2 said "Welcome to Motherhood!" He is not quite sure how Janelle manages to get the house clean but he has a new admiration for her!

He'll get the hang of multi tasking soon, plus I'm getting him a carrier to carry bub around for housework. He's very excited about that one, he can't wait, so I should find one to buy!

Before bed he said how proud he was of himself, happy with what gets done and he loves every part of his job as a Daddy and a stay at home one at that.
He said he's proud he can spend the time with bub rewards when he gets smiles and loves that he is constantly talked to all day. Poor Daddy can't eave the room without someone calling! I say back in a minute when its just us and she will only wait 60 secs - no more!

I would love to be home, but I am happy because my babies are both happy, theres still a feeling of 'missing out' it makes a big diffference when your partner makes a fuss of you when you come home, I had a baby ready, smiling and waitig in her stroller at the front door today, there's nothing like coming home to a happy smiley baby, Daddy makes sure she is ready for tea when I get home so I can 'take over', he really has done an amazing job!

Biggest problem is to get people to stop visiting the MOMENT I get in the door!!
BIL told 3 people yesterday that it was rude they came over so often, we have a baby and Ben wants to spend time with his wife so stop 'popping over'!

What a great story - and a fabulous stay at home dad from the sound of things!!!

Luke would love to be the one at home, but says he doesn't think he could deal with it every day like I do. Like you though he loves coming home to his little family ready and waiting : )

He spent the first 2 months at home with us having said that, and he certainly appreciates the work involved.

I can't believe all the drop-ins you're getting though blink.gif - what is with people just dropping in on a young new family?!?!? Good on hubby for drawing some boundaries : )

That is so cute!

Mark was Mr Mum for a few days recently when I was really sick, and then had to take over completely when I was in hospital. He's always been an absolutely fabulous dad and really hands-on, and, of course, he did absolutely brilliantly, but he had a much better understanding of how nice it is to be able to hand over the baby when someone else arrives home! He also understands how hard it is for me when he is away on business for days at a time!

I agree, nothing nicer than a smiling baby! smile.gif

It is gorgeous biggrin.gif We had the first 3 months together which helped a GREAT deal! Its quite funny to see Ben with his nose in the print outs I bring home on baby development and play, he carries pieces areound so he can catch up when he can!

I read KM's this morning post about how Excited Dylan was to see his mummy, at lunch Paris had just finished her bottle so was feeling 'drunk' she looked at me, burped, gulped then smiled and waved her arms around.

I know a little bit about the process of having baby, having two pregnant women and a woman who recently had a baby in my office. I have to say, none of them enjoy pregnancy, in fact it seems like hard work!
We are more in the process of getting ready to try, as opposed to the trying phase, but it's only days away. I'm looking forward to fatherhood, but at the same time I'm a bit scared. I think that'd be a natural outlook on it though. I think Bec will make a fantastic mum blink.gif blink.gif
