How much does Daddy help with all the things that have to happen before the kiddos go down for the night?

Jordan is actually a huge help. The kids usually take a bath together. I wash them up and hand Kiefer off to Jordan. He gets Kiefer dressed, teeth brushed, and medicated (this kid has a ton of meds so this is a HUGE help). While he does that, I do the same for Jaleigh. Cuts my prep time for bed in half.

He also reads books and sings bedtime songs with me for both kids. It is really sweet to watch him get really into the whole daddy thing, even if it's only for a small portion of the day.

Stuart is amazing :-) he does it all from pjs to bed!!! he is in charge of the bedtime routine he gets their pjs on (sometimes i do this but most of the time he does) and then takes them all up to bed, he reads the girls a story too, i like that i can sit down and relax for the 15mins he is doing that, thing is he really enjoys it and i really dislike it so it works lol

Harry is great too I bathe the girls after dinner usually -he comes home about 5 minutes before dinner so after that he gets to relax a bit or does the dish washer. And then when it's actual bed time he comes to read them a story ( he does the voices lol) , each their own story. I'm usually the one that helps them with their hair and stuff, but they can change etc themselves, so it helps. But I'm sure with the new baby he'll help changing /bathing etc like he did when the girls were little

Daddy's help? just (bitterly) joking...

No, I shouldn't be so harsh.. during the week it is just me home with the girls - so obviously it's just me doing it then, but Emersyn's father has really stepped up to the mark and alternates between having her Fri-Sun and Sat-Sun each week, so I presume he does all the bedtime stuff when she's at his house.. I would hate to learn it was his partner doing it all...

Whatever, you should be harsh, they don't help OK, I'm bitter. I feel frustrated with dh, but if I were going to explain I'd do it in The Hush. He does help sometimes with bedtime, but certainly not every night...

Troy is actually really great. If I'm working an evening shift, it's all on him. But even if I am home, he does the showers, teeth, and pjs, and I do the story and tucking in

HEhe Chantelle, that's great! Seems like it's the other way around here, Harry does the story and tucking in
