Dad is a totally inexperienced househusband, but with the help of stacks of post-it notes and the very best of intentions, he thinks he can take good care of his newborn baby while his exhausted wife takes an afternoon to herself. He tries really hard, but the results are disastrous! Let's face it: it's Mum who runs the household.
