age is just a number

Does it matter how old SKs are?

For me it doesn't. If they are 2, 12, or 22 I want to be alone in my home with MY kids if DH isn't home.

I don't want to have to put clothes on because they are there. Cook or clean up messes.

I want to sit in my living and watch TV alone while my kids play.

What difference does age make?

Do you walk around naked with your kids? How old are they?

I agree, I'm rarely - if ever - home alone with my step kids without DH there. They're not there to see me.

So I do see what you're saying, but I think it's probably *easier* if they're older, because they're doing their own thing.

In your case, it sounds like your DH is pushing you to be a babysitter. I wouldn't be okay with that either.

Yes I do. They are 4 and 5 both girls

Yes. Age matters. A six year old has different needs than a 13 year old.

If it doesn't matter, simply answer.

You won't though because it would totally fuck with your pretend narrative.

LOL!!  That's... strange?  But then again I am freezing the second the thermostat dips below 79, so walking around naked would never work for me.

I'm not really sure what the point of your post was though... obviously age does matter where care is concerned.  A 12 year old is relatively self-sufficient whereas a 3 year old needs supervision.  

And do you not need to cook or clean up messes when it's just your two girls?  I want to know your secret, lol.

It matters because at 5, 15, or whatever I don't want anyone here!
