Re: DH watches kid like grandparent

Next weekend I'll be gone from Friday afternoon until Sunday afternoon and he'll be home alone with the 3 kids. I have no worries.
Someone recently looked at me wide eyed with amazement when I told her I left all 3 kid with my DH. 0-0

Apparently that's not normal? Or something?

I would probably seriously flip my lid if my DH acted like he couldn't be bothered to watch OUR kids. He doesn't do the best job ever. He doesn't even do a GOOD job. But he tries, he honestly does try his best. I do appreciate it (b/c apparently it's rare?! ) but I also EXPECT it. They're HIS KIDS, too.
