He has offered to babysit for my OH's 30th birthday party, and I appreciate him offering because he is Tee-total and everyone else will be drinking.My issue is that I don't trust him with my LG because he can't handle pooh! He runs from the room gagging! So my concern is that he will do that when babysitting!I could be overreacting, but it doesn't seem unreasonable to me.Any thoughts ladies? I'm stuck for ideas otherwise.
take your child to the party?
We are taking her, but my OH wants to go out afterwards. So someone will need to babysit.
a grandparent then?how old is the child?
She's just turned 15 months.I have asked my parents if they would mind babysitting at our flat, no definite answer yet though.Because my OH's mum will be drinking and his sister and they usually babysit.
Is she likely to poo then? Wouldn't she be sleeping?
I feel bad though because he's offered to babysit. And he is always there when my OH's mum and sister are babysitting.I think I'm overreacting a wee bit!Thank you squeakytoy . I needed someone to talk to about it, my OH said I was worrying for no reason.
She would be sleeping, but she's a bit irregular sometimes.I am over thinking things. Sorry
I would have said if she is likely to be asleep then it shouldnt be a problem... Most people would run a mile from poo if there is someone else there happy to take over, but would cope quite perfectly if there was no choice but to deal with it themselves!
Explain that you are concerned about his ability to deal with toddler poo and leaving the child to sit in it until you return isn't an option. If he's still game, buy him a facemask and dab it with Vicks in case he gets caught out.
have you asked SIL's OH how he is planning to handle it?
Leave him a clothes peg just in case.
Yeah you are right. I'm just over thinking things!I will have a word, we are seeing them tonight. He's wonderful with her otherwise, and that's my only (unfounded) concern.He has a little sister who was a baby when he was a teenager so thinking about it, I'm pretty sure he can handle it.Thank you everyone (I love the Vicks idea BTW)
I think me and my OH are going to the cinema on Friday so he can have a trial run with my SIL there!
