Am I overreacting?

I just need other parent's perspective on this...

I don't go out much since my ds was born a year ago. I finally signed up for an exercise class that meets twice a week. DH is supposed to watch ds while I'm in class - for 1.5 hours two times a week.

Something came up that he wanted to do without ds. He asked his brother to watch ds. I feed uncomfortable with this as ds has separation anxiety and has only been to his uncle's house twice. He doesn't see his uncle regularly either.

No, I don't think you are at all... There is only one person that I will let watch my DS other than his dad and that's my sister - but she's been around him tons since the day he was born. His dad's brother has only seen him a few times as well and his sister has never seen him... and there's NO way I would leave him with either one of them.

I just think that if your first gut reaction was "no", then its probably not a good idea.

Re: Am I overreacting?

I think you and DH need to sit down and agree on who can and can not watch your kid so at least that isn't something you will argue about at the last minute. you know? *hugs* for the first few days I had a hard time even letting family hold ds, lol and the first time I let somebody watch him was torture. it is your responsibility to be protective, and maybe even over protective
