When the Baby Won't Stop CryingMolly Thornberg
*DISCLAIMER* I’m not a husband basher, promise! My husband is seriously awesome and a fabulous father. He’s just not “mom.”
This scenario plays out, oh every night at our house.
The older kids go to sleep and I get to start my work day. My husband takes over all duties with the baby.
Within an hour, I hear a whimper – followed by a crying scream from our little Zeke. I keep thinking to myself: Dad’s in control, he has this. I hear my husband talking to him and trying to make him stop crying.
10 minutes later, I get a text, IM or a scream “What does the baby need?”. It’s the same answer every time – “Check his diaper or see if he’s hungry.” Dad just isn’t mom, and that’s okay.
When I caught this clip from Bored to Death of what Zach Galifianakis’ character did when the baby wouldn’t stop crying, I knew I had to share this with you. Let’s pray your baby daddy doesn’t do this!
Whisky on the nipples – just lovely.
