Does your husband know the name of your child's school, doctor, etc?

I was amazed that my husband has no clue what school our kids go to! His excuse is that he works..Boo hoo! When I worked full time I knew where they went, since I had to pick them up! Plus I knew their teachers etc...everything a parent should know. I found it a bit sad how much he didn't know about his kids.

  • omg yes. Ditto for daughters ballet coach, assistant coach, the junior helpers, the names of everyone is sons kindergarten class, teacher/principal/office secretary, etc etc . he also knows what day is gym, library, etc. It's shocking to me a dad would want kids and then entirely hand them over to the mom and do so little. raising them is FUN. I schedule dr appts around my husbands schedule. he wants to be there. he handles shots better, we bet on their weight and height, etc etc

  • DH knows their doctors, school, birthdays. The only thing he might not completely up on is the names of all of the older kids' teachers. They are in middle school, so different teachers for different periods. Some days I barely know that.
