Quoting Mrs. Purplelady:" Why is it that moms think dads can't handle the household/kids like they can? Do you leave instructions for dad when you leave the house?"
i think there are plenty of dads that would do a great job.
DH is an awesome dad, but if he could never deal with DD when she is sick, he wouldnt know the first thing to do or how to even tell.
he would let her be dirty and leave the house trashed. he also does not think much about safety. he never realizes that she is still little (she is 2 now) and cant do everything he wants to do with her and that he has to slow down etc.
i honestly do not think he could handle being a single dad to her with me out of the picture or being away for more than a few hours.
