    Yep I get this. Apparently I have DH of the year as he takes DS out to the supermarket early on a Sat.

    And don't get me started on the "working mum" comments while DH has never once been called a working dad. Hello??? We are co-parents!!

He comes back 15 minutes later red faced and asking for his shoes because someone had told him off for letting his kid go barefoot because a father couldnt possibly have a clue how to parent their own child. It happens alll the time.
    Yes, see that's the other side of the coin isn't it , and I'm guilty of that with my husband . Mums are 100% trusted and poor old dads get doubled checked all the time .

    My pet hate at the moment was MIL saying that DH was "babysitting" DS on Saturday - um no he's not, you can't babysit your own child.

    The babysitting thing annoys me beyond belief!!!

    DH gets comments from both aides of the fence, he's been praised and e has been in the same situation as FLs DP.

    Meh ya never win

    My mum is the worst offender at this. She is always saying isn't it great that DH gets them out the bath and cleans their teeth. Isn't it great he does ... Blah blah blah.... But we both have had busy days , both see it as a dual responsibility so we can get at least an hour of us time in before sleeping.

    Poor mum really did everything . Dad went to work 9-5 and then we saw him until maybe 7pm when he promptly left mum with us kids whilst he visited his local pub until last order pretty much every night ! So my mum just thinks I've bagged myself the most modernist man in the entire world!!!

    My DH is great, really great, but honestly I'd like praise for "babysitting" my DD too!!!

    Ah yes, very timely for this household.

    One of our children has been quite unwell for sometime (and has had a short hospital stay). I have taken many unpaid leave days from work to be at home with her and DH has taken one day of paid leave and one afternoon (when I was absolutely stuck), and apparently this is just sooooo amazzzzzing of him and makes him such a fabullloooouuus Dad.
    Um hello

    Yep that is what I get, if I ask DH to go out to the supermarket to get something and if he takes all 3 children I hear how unfair it is that he took them all and how lucky I am but no one ever says it when I do a whole grocery shop with all 3. It was the same when each baby was born people would always say "beautiful baby well done" to him and I am like "hey what about me, you know the one that carried him/her for 9 months then gave birth to them" I know I am lucky to have a loving, supportive, hard working husband who is also a wonderful father but what about me isn't he even slightly lucky?

    Yep it ****s me. But never happens as my DH is a lazy **** and never does anything on his own with the kids...... Oh but he cooks dinner so he must be husband/father of the year.....
