When You Spend Maternity Leave With Your Husband…Twice

people-2592302_640

Somewhere in between having our first and second child, I became the breadwinner and my husband became a stay-at-home-dad. When the birth of our second child was approaching, I was excited. Not only was my daughter about to make her world debut, but I was glad to have extra help.

I just knew with my husband at home, maternity leave and the newborn stage would be easier.

It never occurred to me to touch base with my husband prior to our daughter’s birth to check on what his expectations of this time would look like. It turned out my husband and I had very different ideas. Not only were we not on the same page, but we were in different books…in different libraries…in different cities…on different planets.
