  • you know we havnt had our first baby yet and i wounder how my husband will be when left home alone. LOL sounds bad i know
    Im sure he will do just fine he watches our newphew for his sister and hes just a few weeks old and hes great with him so im sure he will be just as good if not better with our little guy.
    However he is clueless about having a newborn lol

  • Meh, not really... He usually calls for help and has his sister and brother here by the time I get back... He can't understand how I do it alone all day "out numbered by kids" lol! Men are so funny!

  • I think that accidents happen, regardless of which parent happens to be home. So of course I would trust my husband to be alone with his own daughter, if I didn't I wouldn't have chosen to have a child with him. However if it were a situation where my child continuosly got injured, and the injuries were serious, red flags would undoubtably be thrown up.

  • I trust my husband, but I sometimes wonder how preoccupied he will get while watching them alone. I have three children (12, 3, 7mths) and sometimes he gets so envolved in a tv show that it takes me 4 times to get him to answer me....but I know that he loves the children, as your husband will, and that alone should be enough to trust him to be alone with them. A parents love is something that makes us all be a little more cautious.

  • I trust him at home becuase I put the gate up in between the kitchen and the liveing room when I leave becuause I've come out of the shower and my son is standing on the kitchen table!!! But I am a little weary when they want to go to the store alon i am always like you know you can't take your eyes off him for a second!!!
