My baby has been with her Dad too long, I need to make sure she's still alive...
Please someone tell me that I am not the only Mom afraid to leave their child with Dad for too long.... I always conduct a full prep routine for leaving the hubs and little one alone for any period of time. Is there food left out on the table for him to prepare? Are the bottles clean and ready to use? Is the baby dressed? If not, is a proper outfit pulled out and ready to be put on? I swear it probably makes me sound completely overbearing and ridiculous, but I've learned from prior instances that these preparations must be made!
It's like when you are a passenger in a car. The driver is paying attention to the directions and you are just in the passenger seat enjoying the ride. I cannot tell you how many times my husband has watched me feed Olivia or go through our bedtime routine, but somehow, every time I am about to walk out the door I am bombarded by my panic stricken husband with questions like, "what do I feed her?", "How much will she eat?", "What can she wear?". Every single time. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
His panic makes me panic... How am I the only one who knows the drill? Its crazy!
In all seriousness, my husband is absolutely wonderful and he is an excellent parent and spouse, but it just cracks me up. I've actually used it as an excuse to get out of social obligations.. which is probably worse..
"...Sorry I've gotta head home. I've gotta make sure my kid is still alive, she's been with her Dad too long..."
totally not the only one right?
