Mum pens a poem which pokes VERY gentle fun at her other half and the internet response is very surprising.
Caroline Olling Andersen’s poem “Daddy’s Asleep” has captured the attention of thousands of parents who can relate painfully well to it.
She’s also faced a large amount of backlash for it and issued a brilliant rebuttal.
I love your daddy, I really do,
After all, without daddy, I wouldn’t have you.
But from midnight till sunrise, it’s just you and I.
And as each hour passes, I’m not gonna lie:
Mommy’s love slowly fades, becomes angry and weak,
Because no matter what, your dad is f***ing asleep!
It all starts out lovely. We kiss each other goodnight.
We look lovingly down at you dear, such a beautiful sight.
An hour later, mommy wakes with a start.
You’re twisting and turning, you’re starting to fart.
You’re gesturing for food. Mommy is there
with a bottle or breast
Daddy is snoring away, the way he knows best.
