I was a single mom with my two year old since day one and even though my husband has been in her life for nine months she's still transitioning to having him around so he doesn't really "parent" her... just the easy stuff. Now that our daughter is here I can't get out of the habit of me doing everything. It's causing a strain in our relationship but I don't know how to let go. I know that if it takes an extra minute or two for him to diaper her it's not the end of the world. I know if he holds her a little awkward it's his discomfort, not hers. So why can't I relax and let him learn how to be a dad?
