I find that so annoying too. They are parents not sitters.

Yeah I've heard people saying that. It's ridonkulous.

I'm going to a concert next Wednesday and DH is gonna do a solo dad night, that's how I describe it anyhow. He says he might take the girls on a date (they're 3 and 12 months), which I think is adorable :)

I feel it implies that Dads are less of a parent then a mom.
No one ever says a mom baby sits her own kids.

Im a stay at home mom and do mostly everything when it comes to taking care of thr kids so when I do get some time away without hubby or thr kids(rare) it does feel like he is babysiting them since thats not something he normally does.
