We deal with this with my older daughter as well (2.5), especially since my husband started taking Wednesdays off and working four ten-hour days. I think our expectations are clear when it is just me, her, and the baby. But on days that dad is home, our routines disappear (along with all predictability), and expectations (both hers and ours) tend to shift. I imagine this can be destabilizing/stressful, even though having dad home is a positive change.
