Are you a "hand over" mom?

 I am!!! As soon as dh hits the door I hand him dd and run for the bath tub! From the time he gets home until he walks out the door for work  he does whatever dd needs help with. If she is sick and trowing up he is with her, if she needs to potty he takes her, and if she has a nightmare he cuddles her. He is gone from 7 am to 8 or 9 at night so I feel like he should be the parent when he get home ya know? 


****Side Note****


Dh is only handed dd. The house work, cooking, and laundry are already done so it is just him focusing on dd, nothing else.

Depends on the day. Sometimes I am, sometimes I'm not. We both work though.

 nope, my husbnad work 12-16 hour days 6-7 days a week in a labor field job ... my husband needs his rest sorry but he does . He brings in the money plain and simple and if he isnt feeling well or exausted he cant do his job properly which wouldnt work because he is self employed no one else for the work to fall on . He does stuff with our kids but I dont hand them over and expect him to jump at thier every need either.

No way. I'm lucky to stay at home and that's because he works hard. He should not have to work at home too.

He has an hr and a half drive home so he can decompress (his words) and I do most of the stuff on the weekends.

Mmm no, I dont do that. Dh has work to do once he gets home, so we share the kids no matter what

While I'm all for sharing child responsibility. You seem to ne taking it to an extreme. He needs rest and relaxation too ya know.
