No he doesn't. He'll either go to bed, watch tv or play on the computer. Sometimes he'll be doing something productive...but more often not.

Re: Who gives the kids baths?

Well, my kids all bathe themselves, but I did most baths when they were babies. My older kids gave my littles baths once they hit toddler age. My ds is 4 and has recently started taking showers (you know, just like daddy ). He is so cute. He just casually tells me he's going to take a shower and sometimes asks me if I can hand him the "boy soap" before he starts the water. Just adorable.

I usually give DS baths during the weekdays, since I pick him up from daycare. DH usually works later than I do, but he gets up and makes breakfast for DS in the morning, so I feel like the trade-off is fair, since I'm soooo not a morning person. ;-)

Re: Who gives the kids baths?

I give the children a bath . I don't think DH has ever given them a bath. I also brush their teeth and put them in bed. DH has never done either of those as well.

I do the baths most of the time. DH probably do 10% which is the same with diapering

Well, for the past 10 months I have done all the baths, because DH was working in another state and only home a few days a month. However, now that he is home, he usually gives the boys their bath. I supervise the girls in the shower. So it is about even.

I always give ds (7 months) his bath only because we have our evening routing down to a t, dd is older (almost 5) and more flexible with her timing, she usually doesn't go to bed until a while after ds and I'd say dh and I are about 50/50 with giving dd a bath.

Re: Who gives the kids baths?

If we are both home, I wash our daughter and he supervises/washes the boys. If DH has practice (baseball or football) then I make sure everyone is washed. If we have an unusually busy night, I will do baths in the morning while DH is at work. So it works out to about a 50/50 split.

Dh hates giving baths. I do 99.99% of them. They only time he does is if I'm sick or just had a baby, lol. Or in labor :P I really think those are the only times he has. I don't mind though. They like baths so it's no biggie.
