“When I come from work she is always ‘tired’. Now it’s me who has been at work doing stuff all day…”
Sometimes, working dads just don’t understand what it is their stay-at-home momsactually doall day while they’re out slaving away and making the money. Such was the case for Tony Emms.
His fiance always talked about being tired, but he never really got it…that is, until he walked in on this one day after work. That’s when it hit him.
Tony snapped a pic of thesnoozing mama and baby along with an eye-openingFacebook postthat has since went viral for all the right reasons. He wrote:
“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 fears woken up by me and has to Spring straight in to action to get up and get her self sorted for the hectic day she has…so gets up 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 changed 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 done earlier is now time wasted as baby’s toys are everywhere.
I come home from working and get annoyed that o have to tidy up and say mummy hasn’t done anything yet she has worked her ass of all day to make sure the baby is healthy and happy…if any other daddy’s 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 baby’s and they both deserve their rest.

Well said, Tony.What this dad intended to be a touching messageabout his hardworking woman turned into a viral mantra for mamas everywhere.
He’s overwhelmed by the attention it’s received, as he made clear in this follow-up Facebook post a couple days ago:
Not all moms are out making the money, but that doesn’t make them any less of a bread winner. We love seeing dads like Tony shower their woman with the love and appreciation she deserves.
Hey, that’s just about as good as a nap, right moms?!
