True love is not just about the sweetest chocolates or the biggest bouquet of roses you can give but it’s about support, patience, and hard work. This February, we are bringing you the touching stories of the partners of our Babymamas!
I am a Dad – Lemy Maningas
“Breastmilk is the best for babies.” That’s what my wife, Danna, truly believes in. No one had to encourage her to breastfeed. That’s is why I am so proud of her.
I did not just see my wife feeding our child the most nutritious milk, I also saw a well-bonded mother and daughter. And it shows until now that our baby has grown into a healthy toddler.
As my wife takes care of our child, I realized how tiring it was for her. I also learned that you can burn so much calories from breastfeeding. I knew I had to do something. I just gotta cook for her, do the chores, and take care of our little princess so she could get the rest she deserves.
My wife is a very strong person. But even a strong personality has her own weaknesses. When she gets stressed, she feels tired and sometimes depressed. I always constantly remind her, “Mommy, ang ganda ganda mo. Ang galing galing mo,” sealed with a kiss.
I guess these are the things that I do to show her how much I appreciate her. Now that she is pregnant with our second child, I have to do more of these little things. I have to be more than the dream husband she wishes I was.
