My DH wants our daughter to be dressed in her best clothes, groomed, and in a good mood when he walks through the door each day.
I start about 2 hours before he gets home making sure she is clean and dressed nicely, but I swear she finds something to get into each day right prior to his arrival. If he comes thru the door to a fussy, crying 17 month old, he will gripe at me for hours. It's like he expects her to be playing quietly when he gets home.
It's so hard to make sure everything is perfect. Do any of you Mom's deal with something similar? How can I get have everything just so perfect each day by 3:30?

WTH? Are you serious? My husband is lucky to have a HOT dinner when he walks through the door. I spend my entire day chasing after two rambunctious little boys, cleaning when I can, and running errands. I don't care if my little one is in a diaper by the time my husband comes home from work. All that matters is that my children were fed, I got a load of laundry done and no one got hurt or sick that day. Tell your husband to take a chill pill. Not everything can be perfect and you're stressing out trying to make things perfect. A marriage like that won't last long.

Unless you and your husband deal with your HUSBAND's issues you will be raising a neurotic little girl who will grow up thinking she is never "good enough" for themain man in her life. This is NOT about her being "perfect" it is about your husband having problems. My gosh---have you no idea what that is doing to her? Suggest he get some counseling before he really screws up her precious little mind and emotions!!!!! Tell him before you continue this ridiculous behavior he has to read a book called, "Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters" and then if he still insists--he needs help.
