To take my dog toileting in the park while 2yo DS is in bed?

(102 Posts)

My neighbour just suggested I do and she'd keep an ear/eye out for him (she has my mobile number). His room is on the back and she is always in her garden so would hear him if he cried. The park is a 10 second walk from my house - I can see my house from the park (it's across a road at the end of my road iykwim, my house is towards the end of my road). It's a small city park with a playground and highly populated with summer revellers at this time of year. The dog won't toilet in the garden, normally DH takes her out but he's away with work and will be all next month.

Obviously I pick up after the dog and as soon as the dog has been I'd be straight back. Thoughts?

I think it's fine.

But I would go with bunging the 13yo a quid to sit in the house each evening. Then in a couple of years, you'll have a babysitter all trained up so you can actually go out for the evening.

meerkat you know this will rumble on MN loves a good 'baby leaving' thread grin

Think you've decided right though, if you're not 100% about anything, best to not do it (tries to listen to own sage advice)
