I had an idea of what to expect as a new mommy…but I wasn’t so sure about my husband when it came to being a daddy. Okay, well, I had an idea…I knew he would love our little guy unconditionally. I knew I’d melt when I saw the two of them staring into each others’ eyes. But there have been some surprises along the way.
Case in point, on one of their first outings sans mommy, my husband refused to carry a diaper bag. So, instead he took a plastic grocery store bag and put a diaper and a bottle in it. That’s all. Not even any wipes or a change of clothes. Just a diaper and a bottle. And they were gone, for a couple of hours. Ugh, I cringed when I found out. Okay, maybe I more than cringed. But there was no reasoning with him. I eventually realized he’ll learn the hard way. It’ll be inconvenient for Caleb perhaps… but a lesson learned for daddy. Nowadays, he’s upgraded to carrying the “essentials” in his gym bag. I’m still not sure if he takes wipes.
