Man writes touching message to the mother of his child
When Tony Emms from Northumberland, England and his fiancée Charlotte welcomed a baby, the couple decided that Charlotte would stay home to take care of the little one. When Tony came home one day to find Charlotte and the baby sleeping, he was inspired to take a photo and post it on Facebook, along with this touching message:
“I sometimes don’t give this woman the credit she is due. When I come from work she is always ‘tired.’ Now it’s me who has been at work doing stuff all day, but lately I’ve been thinking what this amazing woman does while I’m out. Surely she just sits with the baby and watches TV and has a chilled day, right?
No is the answer. When I leave for work, she has to spring straight into action — to get up and get herself sorted for the hectic day she has. Baby is kicking off cause he is hungry but so is she. She doesn’t eat but baby does… then sits and plays with him, then changes a disgusting nappy, then plays again — he falls asleep. Brilliant Mummy can have a nap, no she doesn’t, she does the washing, cleans up baby’s toys and starts washing the pots from the night before. Baby wakes up and is hungry. Mummy hasn’t had breakfast but she still doesn’t eat — she gets baby set for his lunch. After his lunch he then wants attention and plays — remember Mummy still hasn’t eaten. All the cleaning she’s done earlier is now time wasted as baby’s toys are everywhere.
I come home from working and get annoyed that I have to tidy up and say Mummy hasn’t done anything. Yet she has worked her ass off all day to make sure the baby is healthy and happy.
If any other daddies out there feel like me, think about what you’ve done and what Mummy has done. Respect the mother of your child. She is a special type of human that has given up everything to bring up your baby. I truly love my 2 sleeping babies and they both deserve their rest.”
Tony's heartfelt post went viral, and received an outpouring of positive comments. Some mothers and fathers don't leave home to go to work, but that doesn't mean that their jobs are any less important.
