Fortunately for me...yes! He's a hands on daddy. Dd wants nothing to do with me when he's home.

 Yes definitely. We both work. Once he comes home he takes over while I go to work.

yes. The last few days I've been getting aggrivated (not really AT him, just at the situation) the last couple days because right at bath and last feeding time, someone calls him (we're buying a house, he's designing a couple websites for people, and is planning a bachellor party) and he's pacing around the room talking to them while I have to bathe the boys and feed them by myself. But, that's not the norm....

 Yes, my husband is very hand's on.  He loves playing with the kids and doing stuff with them.  He and I sometimes "fight" over who is going to snuggle with our 2 year old before bed.  I couldn't have asked for a better husband and father to my children.

He sure does.  He does everything that I do and without complaint.  Often times he takes over so I can catch a break.  But... I never would have married a man that doesnt.

Absolutely! He is very helpful with everything from sports practices, bedtimes, bath time, reading to them, doing homework with them, taking them on bike rides and so on. I couldn't ask him to do anything else more than he does.

No not really. It's pretty bad really.
I do everything and he acts exhausted after entertaining the boys for 10 minutes...hello I do it ALL day 24/7!
For some reason since he works out of the house he's entitled to come home and do zilch zero nada.
Ugh yeah I'm a little bitter! We talked about this last night so hopefully he steps up.

Me too. The only thing he usually does besides play with them is read them their story and tuck them in.


Quoting mamavaness:

Lol not really. he works too much and when he is home I rarely ask him to help. He offers but I usually refuse unless I really need something done.

Yes my Dh does help with the kids, sometiems I feel like he could help more, but for the most part he is very helpful and always supportive. We have kids from 20 all the way down to two. He is a very good father and husband.
