Now this dad totally gets it!

When this father of three (to 20 month old twins and a 5 year old), Peter Bristow, Personal Trainer and Online Fitness Coach, noticed his wife curled up asleep on the floor after changing their twins and tidying the kid’s room his reaction was adorable.

Peter shared on his Facebook page,

“To all the mums out there who are just spent…
Sometimes you just need to stop.
My wife was shattered (this pic was not staged!).
One moment she was changing a nappy… the next… she was no where to be seen.
I had wrangled the boys into their highchairs and had their food in front of them.
And finally all was quiet…. too quiet.
Where the heck is mum I thought.
She must be tidying the boys room…
Then after a few minutes more… she still hadn’t emerged from the bedroom… I decided to see what she was doing.
All I could see was a pair of feet in the doorway.
My heart started beating…
Is she even alive…
This was actually my first thought as my wife usually just doesn’t stop!
Upon closer inspection, I was relieved she was breathing… so I took the two blankets off the boys beds and gave her a pillow.
She emerged 20 odd minutes later after a little nana nap.
She said she’d changed the nappy and just looked down at the carpet like it was a luxurious bed of feathers..
Bless you hun.
You give life 100% it was nice to see you ‘just stop’.”

  • Nice to be shown appreciation. She must be exhausted from twins alone.


  • Naw, well I’m glad he noticed. It does take a lot out of you.


  • A 20 minute nana nap! What a super mum. So exhausted but she still only allows herself a 20 minute nap.


  • Just what she needed. Well done.


  • A sweet gesture from her hubby!


  • What a thoughtful thing for him to do. You could feel the love just shining through because of his little act of kindness. Sometimes that’s all it takes.


  • That was so kind and thoughtful of him, what a great partner. I hope more fathers are like him. It is hard work looking after kids. She obviously really needed the nap.


  • Aww how cute!


  • Awww, a beautiful, real, raw and honest depiction of motherhood.


  • It’s so tiring isn’t it?


  • This made me teary! Good to see there are husbands like you Peter! We are need that kind of support especially the first few months.


  • I know this exhaustion too well. Good on hubby for letting her nap

    • It can be such an exhausting time – a sleep is a must but also a luxury! :)


  • Awww, my husband would have woken me up!


  • Great story what a great hubby. Hey 20 minutes kip I’ll take it anywhere!


  • What a great husband, very supportive!
