Its funny thinking back to Tone’s last b’day, me being 36 weeks pregnant and feeling like I was about to burst. Little could we have known what lay in wait…. Certainly many people tried to tell (read: warn) me, but you cannot truly know til you are living the life itself. And while I may have taken some extra time to adjust to this “new normal” as Tone labelled it early on, the husband just fell into his new domestic daddy role with absolute grace and ease.
Some people are born to be parents, and my husband is one of them. He adjusted effortlessly to sleeplessness, serious responsibilities and surviving the early weeks, which were consumed with all things baby. He pulled the slack on many occasions when I was just so dead tired or overwhelmed, and constantly kept us smiling and buoyant with his everlasting support.
