My husband plans on going out tonight after work but our 7 month old is really sick... She has been extremely sensitive and needing to be held constantly. Am i asking to much for him to come home and help me with our child so i can have a me moment?

  • If he doesnt go out often and its a special night you should let him go. If he goes out often and it isnt a big deal you should tell him he is needed at home.

  • Kids get sick and grownups' plans change. That's how it works. Any room for compromise? Can he go late, or come home early?

  • Well, if he hasn't been able to have a night out and this is the only time he could gp, I would probably tell him to go, but with the understanding he needs to come home at a decent hour and will then be taking care of the baby to let you get some rest and a break. But if he goes out all the time, or could go some other time, I would want him to stay home and help.

  • hmm if it was my child i wouldn't have to ask my husband would never go out when our child was really sick. You are def. not asking to much. Father first, friend later

  • First of all, I don't believe in "boys night out" for a married man. If her wanted to continue going out with the boys then he should have stayed single. Secondly, "boys night out" shouldn't even be discussed if you have children. I say he has a sick child at home and he just want to be childish.

  • I agree with ShouldHaveLeft. I dont think that married people need to go out and put friends and partying above the needs of their wife/husband or children. ESPECIALLY if the child is sick. Family should come first in my opinion. You are definately NOT asking to much. And you need a break too. Its not fair for one person to have to do ALL the work
