Every time I tell mil that dh is going to be looking after ds1 for a day because I need to do something she will offer to take him because dh shouldn't have to miss work (he works 7 days a week so I never get a break except for work). I actually found out at that at one stage she told sil that I shouldn't expect him to look after the kids. WTF - I thought they were his kids too.

Remember...a woman has to do a job twice as good as a man to get half the praise.......
my mil nearly pee's her pants with almost orgasmic joy when my dh changes one of the kids nappies....makes me want to puke....but in thier day the men often did nothing..i mean NOTHING...they got home from work, sat down to a made dinner after a few drinks at the pub, went to bed....i know quite a lot of grandads who have never changed one of their own kids nappies.....erghhh so glad i wasnt a mum back then.

My mum is the opposite - really hard on my partner even though he spends a few hours a day with DS, washes all the nappies, is more domestic than I.She still says he should spend more time parenting than he does. Thank goodness when he's out with the kid on his own I don't have to hear 'he's wonderful' type remarks.
I think Mums get a raw deal, but as a few PP have pointed out, it's usually from the generation above us that had blokes/society expecting thst blokes wouldn't do much wiyh the kids. Neither o our dads ever changed a nappy.
In the same vein as this discussion, I get really PO'd when people said to me when I was pg - oh, you're having a boy...your partner must be so happy. Just because he's a dad, obviously he'd want a boy...right? And what about me, you think I'm not happy too? Or because I'm a mum, I must want a girl? All this gender stereotyping really annoys me. Annoys me so much I bought a pink girly Fisher-price mini dollhouse for DS last week.
