The face we make when we’ve gone through a day full of nursing, nappy changing, dancing (the baby to sleep), washing pump parts and storage bottles, and I was able to answer calls and emails, at may energy pa to watch some series or talk without falling asleep! Hahaha Sa totoo lang, 24 hrs a day is hardly enough for all the duties and responsibilities! But you know, I’m glad @paolo_contis is such a team player! Kulang nalang sya na magpadede kay Summer!😂😂😂 when I’m done feeding Summer, he makes sure she burps. When I’m so tired in the morning due to lack of sleep, he takes her with him for some morning coffee so I can sleep some more! I know mothers are the nurturers, but I salute fathers who literally gets their hands dirty (sa pagpalit ng diaper😝)! But I’m just curious, for the parents out there, how do you divide tasks? Sino sa diaper change? Sino sa ligo? And everything else? . . . But let me also give a shoutout to all the single parents out there!!! Whewww! I salute you!❤️

“The face we make when we’ve gone through a day full of nursing, nappy changing, dancing (the baby to sleep), washing pump parts and storage bottles, and I was able to answer calls and emails,” she said, as she posed for a groufie with Contis and their baby. “Sa totoo lang (Actually), 24 hrs a day is hardly enough for all the duties and responsibilities!” 

“But you know, I’m glad [Contis] is such a team player! Kulang nalang sya na magpadede kay Summer (It is almost as if he can even breastfeed Summer),” Reyes stated.

The actress specified how Contis helps her in taking care of Summer: he makes sure to get the baby burping after feeding, and takes the baby from her so she can sleep some more in the morning.

Reyes then expressed her admiration for fathers, but also gave a special acknowledgment to single parents who do everything on their own.
