Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

according to my co-worker my husband is a "creep"

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I just want to see how many of you ladies would agree with my co-worker or with me. Honestly, I think that she is ridiculous but what do I know? We recently became parents, we have been in the process of adopting for several years and FINALLY our dreams came true in December of 2013 (just two months ago) we brought home our 2 year old daughter, Savannah Mercy who we love more than anything in life. I was talking to my co-worker today (I have worked in this office since 2008 and she is a good friend) telling her that Savannah woke up at 2am this morning from a terrible nightmare and she only wanted daddy. So my husband went in there and calmed her down until she was able to go back to sleep but every time he tried to leave she would wake up so he stayed in the chair next to her bed until it was time for him to go to work at 5am.

I thought it was precious because I worried about how well they would bond and it appears I have nothing to worry about. However, this lady said that he was "a creep" because what kind of dad just stays awake staring at his kid until 5am? I explained that she is easily frightened and needs extra TLC while she makes this adjustment into a regular family. She still says that it's weird.

He does this often if she wants or needs his presence. She clings to me during the day but as soon as it's bedtime she is a daddy's girl. Is she overreacting?

Your coworker needs to mind her own.

She's 2 and she's just been adopted into a new family...of course she's going to need some extra comforting. Your DH isn't a creep, he's just a loving father.

Awww that sounds so sweet. He's going to make a great daddy ;).

Your coworker must not have kids. She sounds like she knows nothing about parenthood.

Why is that creepy? I love watching my kids sleep. They're so angelic while sleeping. I forget what terrors they are while awake.
She sounds creepy. Things like that are only creepy to people who have warped minds.

Quoting Anonymous: *sigh* obviously he didn't stay awake for hours staring at his daughter. DUH! And not all men are pedophiles, creeps or whatever. This is stupid.

And stop sharing information with her. Messy people like that can cause a lot of unnecessary problems. All you need is for her to go back and tell a twisted story and CPS is at the door.

He didn't sleep according to him he answered e-mails on his iPad and did work on his laptop. It's not an unusual occurrence.

She is the one that is wrong. Your dh is a good Daddy. Ignore her, she is either childless or jealous because her child's daddy wouldn't do such.
