How do I convince my partner that Child Care is a good idea for our 18 month old?
=S Has anyone else had this problem? He says he can’t really see the point in ‘palming him off’ to someone else when we can handle it. Meanwhile he doesn’t lift a finger around the house (except very rarely mowing)
I’ve tried pushing the fact that (even though ‘we’ CAN look after them both all the time obviously) it would mean more one on one time for our newborn, he could play with other kids (which he loves doing and his brother isn’t big enough yet really), not to mention the extra time I would have to keep the house better than ‘just okay’ but he’s really not interested at all. It would also help to have the extra blank time for him doing his Uni which he does get stuck for time doing currently… Nothing is convincing him and I’m almost at the point of just putting him in without telling him until the first morning…
I just can’t do it keep doing EVERYTHING all the time! I don’t know why he can’t seem to get this!
(Just needing a little vent!)
