A Better Man

I left Annie with Tom for the first time tonight while I went out for dinner with friends. It was really lovely to have a break but so difficult to walk out of the door. I missed the children and was worried about how he would cope with all four of them but when I got home, everyone was tucked up asleep in bed, including Annie in his arms having had her first bottle feed.

Tom’s really surprising me at the moment, ever since Annie entered the world he’s really been putting my mind at rest that he didn’t mean what he said about taking her and that he’s not going to rip my world apart after all, and because of that, my love for him is returning with a depth and voracity like never before. It would seem that becoming a Dad has changed him for the better, into the man I always hoped he would be.
