RQOTD - May 30

What's your least favorite thing to overhear while DH is playing with your LO?

Mine has got to be "Go GIT mama!" I know I'm about to be baby pummeled.

Hearing crying followed by "Don't be a faker!" Baby is guaranteed to be running for me within 2 seconds sporting a new bruise, scrape, etc while my husband comes behind him saying he's faking it. :roll:

Mine is similar to Erins: "What's mommy doing?" which means he's passing them off to me or encouraging them to attack me!

LOL! That reminds me of my 2nd runner up: "EW! Go to mama and give her a hug!" Aka, DH is trying to pass off a poopy child. Blum 3

Lol I've definitely heard most of these. Hmmmm...I think my most hated right now is any farting (dog, human, etc) followed by DH prompting Addy to say "MOMmy....." she did it on her own a couple of times and he thinks it is THE BEST THING IN THE WHOLE WORLD, seriously. So annoying.

What's Mommy doing? This is usually said when he has been playing with DH for two minutes and I sneak off to use the bathroom ALONE. It seems that it never fails.

Yeah, I just had a little talk with DH the other day about his constantly saying "Oh, you're fine." when she hurts herself and cries. All that does is teach her to hide/ignore her feelings, which is not a lesson I really want to instill! And I don't know what the big deal is...it's not like she's some kind of big faker crybaby, and I'm not adding any extra drama with my approach. I say "Are you OK?" and 9 times out of 10 she says "...Yeah" and stops crying. If not, I ask where it hurts, give it a kiss, and say "Now does it feel better?" and that almost always takes care of it. The only time she doesn't almost immediately let it go is when she's REALLY hurt. So...why teach them they're crazy for expressing it appropriately? DH and I are mostly on the same page with parenting, but yeah...that's one area I felt like I had to say something. Must be a man thing.

oh my gosh Leigh it's the exact same in our house. I say Are You OK? And give her a little hug and boom she's over it. Ugh men!

Least favorite thing to hear: Crash! Scream. "She's fine!" More screaming. "Really, she's fine! Don't come in here!"

It usually means she's fallen off of something when Dh wasn't paying attention.

Find Mummy or go to Mummy. Usually about 2 minutes after I send Ronin to him
