EDT: hmm maybe i should have worded the tittle different.. dont get me wrong i 100% trust dh with ds at all times he cares for him beautifully.. maybe i should have said "things you have to remind dh of when watching the kids".. also.. dh has yet to forget anything other then the snacks as meals thing.. idk i think i have OCD with some things

Ok dh is a wonderful father.. every thing i can ask for! BUT there are 3 things that i have to call every day to check up on.. i know my husband .. and i know what he is capable of.. and i have to be sure of these 3 things every day!

1.) did dh get dropped off and picked up from school ON TIME - dh is a heavy sleeper and has no concept of tim

2.) did he feed ds "real" food. - Dh tends to think chips and slim jims are a healthy diet and sufficient for a meal

3.) did he brush ds teeth before school!

other then those hes a perfect dad.. but i feel like if i dont check up on him daily and remind him daily.. then they wont get done

I trust DH to a certain extent with DD.  I've been the main caregiver to DD from birth and remain so even after going back to work full-time, so we have a routine.  I sometimes worry because DH will let her eat whatever she wants (and she'll milk it for all it's worth and live off of juice boxes, cake, cookies and crap if she can) and will let her take out every single toy and toy-like item she can get her hands on and not clean it up.  It bothers the crap out of me.

Of course I trust DH with the kids. But I have girls, he doesn't really do anything. He just nods his head and says okay. They are pretty self sufficient, they know what to eat, when to brush their teeth and what time school starts.

of course. he might not do everything exactly the way I would, but if I wouldnt have married him if he wasnt a grown-up man fully capable of taking care of his own child.

This. I wouldn't have married him, let alone have with him if I couldn't.

Quoting sam12796:

 Yes 100% no need to check up on him.

I would have married or had a child with someone who was incapable of caring for that child.

Why would I be with a man I didn't trust to leave alone with my kids?? Yes I can leave for a few days and know my husband can take care of things. I don't have to call and remind him to do anything.
