So, the good news.
As a bartering arrangement I would propose the following to the David Beckham of your household. A free pass on all England Games and any subsequent matches they play in after the group stage and a free pass for the final regardless of who is playing (that’s a real deal sweetener!)
In return for this most generous offer he needs to do the late night feed so you can either go to bed early, go to the gym or get out with the girls. He should also agree to get up every night when the baby is crying. Of course if you are required to breastfeed and the bottle isn’t an option then you’ll need to come up with an appropriate trade off. The selling point for him is that he can watch the World Cup highlights around the clock while you are tucked up in the full snooze position. Why not even set the baby and him up in the lounge room for the entire month as a real gesture of support?
Now this is a very important point that needs to be entered into the bargaining arrangement. If you too love the football and want to watch then its only fair that matches are evenly divided unless a suitable babysitter can be arranged (good luck finding one if we make the semi’s or finals). You may require a professional lawyer or arbitrator if the bank account permits.
Yes girls this World cup can indeed be a win, win, win result. He can watch the games and six out of seven nights you can get a solid night sleep or catch up with the girls. It’s a fair trade and one that the dads I’ve tested it on, have agreed is a good one.
