Stay-at-home moms aren't always given the acknowledgments they deserve. After all, taking care of a young child can be a full-time job--and a very important job at that. And one working dad named Tony Emms wants the world to know his stay-at-home fiancée Charlotte Sperry is appreciated.
In a Facebook post that has now gone viral, Emms writes, "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?"
But then he goes into detail about what Sperry's typical day really entails. It includes feeding the baby while she goes hungry, putting the baby down for a nap, and cleaning up after the baby only to have him make a mess all over again. Though he has tough days at work, he recognizes that she is working hard too. And he closes off with amazing advice to other fathers.
"Respect the mother of your child. She is a special type of human that has given up everything to bring up your baby," he writes. "I truly love my 2 sleeping babies and they both deserve their rest."
It's truly a message we can all get behind!
