My husband is a Stay At Home Dad - which totally works for my family but does cause some issues.
For example, I prefer that my daughters not have play dates when I am not home. I just worry that someone could accuse him of something inappropriate and ruin our lives.
NOT, of COURSE, that I think my husband would DO anything inappropriate - but you never know what a child might say.
And my husband refuses to call our 13 year old babysitter - even when he needs her to come babysit and even when I am thousands of miles away on a business trip. He will call me in Amsterdam and ask me to call her - 2 houses away - rather than be a 42 year old man calling a 13 year old girl.
And he won't walk her home after she babysits. I always do.
The other day I called our babysitter to come over today and she wasn't available so I called my cousin to see if she had someone. She gave me the name of her nanny's sister - a 23 year old who is currently unemployed.
So I called her up and booked her. Then I gave her number to my husband and said, "Going forward you can call her. She's legal."
My cousin called me back to see how it went and we talked about how nice it was to have a babysitter who wasn't a child. She told me that her husband also refused to have anything to do with the teenagers who sometimes babysat for them.
"Yeah," I agreed. "It's GREAT. I mean it would cost SO MUCH LESS to get divorced than to get sued."
