  • My fiance is really not. I am a SAHM and don't go out much because of his work hours. He has no problem watching the kids on his own if I do go somewhere, but I handle all of the day-to-day things.

  • well my hubby is VERY involved with my son (his step-son) and now that our first baby together is coming well he will be as much as he can! he's deployed so he wants to experience as much as possible when the baby comes and he gets time off for him.

  • my SO is very much in my daughters life he gets home from work (im a SAHM) takes off his work shirt and gets on the floor and plays with her. and if i decide to go running he will take care of her he doesnt mind it or if im not feeling good he will take our daughter to the in laws for a while so i can get some rest. my favorite thing he does though is change her diapers and gives her a bath hope that answered the question

  • He is evolved when he can be. I do get up at night with our son and in the morning with both our kids. But I cant complain. We do things equally.

  • My hubby is super involved. He loves every part of being a dad. I didnt make the baby alone so I wont raise him alone Joey helps with everything, when he gets off work.

  • Extremly involved. The only thing I do that he doesn't do is nurse. He was a SAHD for two months until we found a daycare we liked. He has all day Mondays with her since I work and he's home. He is home with her right now actually since he called out of work to get stuff done at home. He changes her, bathes her, takes her potty, gets her dressed, runs errands with her, puts her to bed when I'm gone/busy, feeds her, plays with her, teaches her, snuggles with her, comforts her...he's a great dad!

  • Well, my boyfriend, who's lived with us for 2 out of 3 of my son's years, is amazing with helping with Landon even though its not really his biological son. He is a father figure to Landon and if things go well, he will be his father growing up.

  • Well I am a sahm and my fiance works 6 days a week at about 14 hours a day! So I do everything. I see it as fair that way. I don't work he does! He spends some time with our son when he gets home ya know playing with him and stuff but I do the actual taking care of him! He will help if I ask him to though!
