Is your DH willing to watch the kids while you go out and do something?

Yes he is willing, but I also have to give him some chances to get out alone. We take turns having alone time or kidless time with our friends. Sometimes it is hard when I've been alone with my daughter all week during the day and then he wants to leave us to go on a camping trip all weekend with his friends, but I know that I'll get to have my "me time" eventually.

Yes, especially Avery. But he is not very good with infants, and quite honestly our infant is not very good with him. Poor guy. She screams in his arms sometimes. Other times she is in a super mood and smiles, etc.

Anyways, yes he is willing, but not until they are a bit older and easier to manage. My MIL will come and help though if I need to go somewhere.

Yes, as long as he isn't working and will be home he is fine doing it. He is just as capable as I am taking care of the kids.

For the most part, yes. I don't really go anywhere though and when I do it's while he's sleeping (during the day, he works nights) or in the evening when he's at work. On the weekends if I need to go somewhere he'll watch them, though. That said, he's not very good with little bitty ones. Once they're potty trained and can verbally express exactly what they want to eat/drink/do he's fine but he gets soooo stressed out with the youngest because he has no idea what's going on. Being our third at this point you'd think he's got it down but nope lol So if I go somewhere and leave her here with him it's usually for no more than an hour or so tops.

Yes, as long as he isn't alone for a long period of time. He is already the only parent home 5 nights a week (I work full time at night)
