Re: DH watches kid like grandparent

I think you need to sit down and figure out a plan/dinner and bedtime schedule together so it's not so much you telling what he should be doing with her, but the two of you making parenting decisions together. Consistency is key when dealing with kids, and inconsistent schedules from the 2 of you doesn't help anyone out.

My DH is great with the kids, doesn't always do everything exactly as I would, but we talk about what our plan is going to be and then whoever is home follows through.

There are times I come home and the kids are sleeping in their clothes (sweatpants and a t-shirt), or I am sure there has been a night or two he forgot to brush their teeth, but overall we try and stick on the same page since he is not just babysitting, they are his kids too.
