He would love to help MORE... and I should let him. But I have a certain way of doing things, and he isn't usually around to see it, so when he gets onto her for something that I wouldn't I have to tell him "Hey, she's OK... don't confuse her".

But he does what he can. At 18 months old she's kind of a one track mind anyway.

Unfortunately, My DH doesn't do a lot when it comes to that.  I wish he did more, and he thinks he does a lot, but I am usually the one that does EVERYHING when it comes to the kids.   I feed them , bath them, dress them, read to them, play with them, take them to school, take them to dr. apts. Discipline them, cuddle them.  I am the one who diapers the baby-always.  I am the one who wakes up  with them at night -always.  We do go out as a family, and he will take them to the park or the zoo occaisonally, but really, overall I wish he would do more, for the kids sake, and his.  I have already told him that he is missing out, even though it is hard sometimes, we will never get these years back!   I am the SAHM so These things are my responsibility, and He works, so he feels his job is to make money, but I think he still should help out more when it comes to raising OUR children.

I have the world's best husband, not only does he help around the house he is very involved in what his girls are doing. He comes to dance practice and cheer practice, he gives the girls baths if needed, he plays babies with them, he reads to them I could not ask for more!

Yes, especially in the last two years he’s really stepped up to the plate and become a vital part of our everyday kid activates.  Once he dove in he found out how much he enjoyed it!

He helps as much as he can, he actually works 4:30pm-? so when we're home he's at work but he does get up at 7am (even when he gets in at 5am) & takes Bailey to school & he picks her up every day after school.

Then when he's off (he works 4 on 3 off) he gets up at 6:30am to help me get Bailey up & ready for school & then after school when he picks her up he helps with home work, dinner etc. .... He's an AWESOME Dad & SO if I do say so myself :o)
