Dad’s hilarious texts to wife on her first day back at work after maternity leave

New mums who head back to work after maternity leave deal with a whole range of emotions. How will my baby cope without me? How will I cope without my baby? It helps to know they are in good hands when you walk out the door on your first day, and it’s only natural to want an update or two, right?

For UK dad Matt Coyne, his wife Lyn’s first day back at work provided the perfect opportunity for some cheeky Photoshop fun.

When Lyn texted Matt to ask how things were going with their son Charlie, what she received in reply was a photo of her precious boy out for a beer.

She seems to find it funny at first until a photo of Charlie at a strip club follows.

Lyn’s demand for “a proper picture” only escalates the hilarity, with Matt sending through a photo of Charlie sky-diving and message, “I will do, but Charlie’s a bit busy at the minute”.

By the time a photo of Charlie supposedly being shot out of a cannon comes through, it is clear Lyn is taking her husband’s humour in her stride.

Matt then shared the hilarity on his blog Man vs Baby.

“Tough week. Charlie’s mum’s maternity leave ended,” he writes.

“So the person in our house who prevents fires etc. returned to work. Whilst I found myself looking after our little boy properly on my own.”

Matt’s not the first dad to express a humourous side to parenting. Make sure to check our hilarious post about the dad who texted his wife when their toddler threw up in the car.
