  • Yes...are you kidding....that would be amazing. Not likely going to happen. I have a hard time getting my husband to watch the baby for a couple of hours when I have somewhere I need to be. Don't get me wrong...he's a great dad, and he's excellent with her when he does watch her, but it's, unfortunately, rare.

  • Mine does, but we do not have much money, so I just have to make do without spending much! Last time he took the kids, I painted a little :) I never take more than a couple hours though, because I feel the kids are so used to having me around, I like to be there for example for their dinner and bedtime routines...

  • My wonderful boyfriend is going to "babysit" my daughter tomorrow night so I can go out to a birthday dinner with my friend. I didn't even have to ask. He volunteered!!

  • I get nights and weekends off so it's my reality. I think it depends on the man and how much of a helpful person they're. Maybe your man does other things.

  • No, because there is no way I would tell him to take a day to himself and take over his job! Maybe if he had a different job. Still, I wouldn't ask him to do anything for me that I wouldn't do for him.
