    Fear factor: “Whenever we went out, the first-aid kit was almost as big as the bag with Shaurya’s diapers, bottles and toys. My husband, he improvises. No jacket if it suddenly gets cold? Easy peasy, bundle Shaurya up in his towel. Both Shaurya and I are learning fearlessness from my husband.”—Nidhi Agarwal, 28, Ahmedabad

    Matching-matching: “I’m the Monica Geller of the mothering world. It rattles me if things aren’t perfect. My husband doesn’t care if Shaila was wearing blue booties with her purple romper instead of the matching cream ones. As long as her feet were covered, he saw no reason to go through the ordeal of struggling with them again.”—Nishita Bajaj, 24, Chandigarh

    A trip down guilty lane: “While at work, we think about our babies being taken care of by strangers and feel guilty. At home, we feel guilty about slacking at work. But, my husband spends more quality time with our daughter than I do, because he’s 100 per cent with her when he’s with her. I’m learning to compartmentalise from him.”—Kritika Rhuia, 34, Mumbai

    Supermom alert: “I not only liked doing things my own way, I hated asking for advice or help. I’m a stay-at-home mum and it was driving me insane! It took my husband’s wide-eyed wonder at the task of swaddling our son that made me realise that asking for help would not make me a lesser able or lacking mom.”—Chandni Khan, 37, Hyderabad

    What’s the prize? “Mothers are super competitive. I was too, until I saw how much more my daughter liked to go out on play dates with her father. His buddies and him weren’t playing a game of one-up with each other, which is why they had more time to play with the kids. I’m trying to be more like that with my own group of mom friends.”—Trisha Behl, 29, Delhi

“My Husband Taught Me How To Spend Quality Time With My Daughter!”

2013-02-22 15:26:00 +0530

Who says husbands take a backseat as parents? Here are wives admitting to the valuable life and parenting lessons they've learnt from their husbands. Do you agree?

They might get the diaper on backwards and come to the verge of tears when their babies howl in hunger, but even fathers can teach mothers a thing or two about parenting. Five yowoto mothers talk about the lessons they've learnt from their husbands

Whether she's raised two kids or ten, every mother has a style. If the baby's bottom wipes must smell like roses, god forbid if someone buys the lavender ones. The baby oil must be to the left of the baby shampoo on shelf two of the bathroom down the hallway. Sounds familiar? Don't lie, we know it does. 

Loosen the reins a little. Don't know how? The answer is sitting right next to you, puzzling over the 'how to' sticker on the diaper pack-your darling husband. Here are a few things yowoto mommies have learned from their husband dears.
