Dh confessed recently that when he is in charge he feels like he can only watch the kids. He isnt comfortable leaving the room(even more so with a newborn around) to do chores. He worries that something will happen or someone might need him so he sits on the couch, waits, and does the bare basics 'just in case'. Only when I return or get up(after he lets me sleep in) will he pick up toys, take out the trash, wash dishes, ect. It makes complete sense to me. I remember feeling the same way when dd1 was born. Difference is I learned how to multi-task and got over the feeling but since dh isnt caring for the kids all day everyday he isnt as comfortable with mutli-tasking on his 'duty'.
