No emails today so I have something that I'd like your guys' wise brains to discuss...
I was on Working Mommy's Blog and came across THIS post and she found this article on Yahoo that is entitled, "10 Things Husband's Should Never Do".
Some of them I agreed with but the one that if I were an irkable person would irk me is #1 which states:
Offer to “babysit” your own kids.
I honestly hate when I hear my friend's husbands say stuff like that. (My husband would rather play with the kids then do almost anything else so I never have this problem nor has he ever said this to me).
For example, one of my good friends wanted to join me and another friend for a movie. I happen to still be at her house chatting when her husband got home, this is how the conversation went:
My Friend: "Hey hunny, I think I'm planning an impromtu girls night tonight and going to watch that chick flick with Shelle and So and So."
Husband: Looks at her in shock, "So what? I have to babysit the kids?"
Me in my head: "Oh no you didn't!? You get to spend quality time with your kids while your wife takes a break for herself." (honestly the girl is one of those girls that feels bad that she gets to stay at home so never takes time for herself! Reminds me of a fellow blogger we all love... JULES :)
My Friend: "I'll make sure they are in bed before I leave."
Husband: "Okay then."
I kid you not people.
So what do you think? Is it babysitting if the husband is watching the kids? Guys, Gals, what do you think?
