Title: Mister Mum
Characters: Jack, Meriel, mentions Ianto.
Written For: Challenge 395: Mother at tw100
Summary: Jack is finding that motherhood is harder than Ianto makes it look.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Torchwood, or the characters.
Jack adored his daughter but despite being the one who’d been pregnant with her, he had to admit that Ianto was much better than him at being the mum.
He’d insisted he could take care of Meriel for the day while Ianto was in London for a UNIT meeting, but it wasn’t even noon and he was more exhausted than he felt after chasing down rogue Weevils.
He’d bathed and dressed Meriel, fed her, changed her, done three loads of laundry, changed her again, been shopping… Now he wanted a rest, but Meriel was hungry.
How did Ianto do it?
