He has his commute to decompress.
Why would I imply to Maya that she is something he needs to "prepare" for or "rest before" when she wants to be with him? What. ever.
She wants to see him and be with him because she loves him and has missed him - when he's home it's DADDY TIME.
Dh commutes, so his drive is about 45 min. I know many aren't going to see things my way but to me thats a long break. He's on the phone, listening ot the radio etc. i REALLY look forward to drives in the car, that's MY break. I get to listen to npr or music or whatever while DD is strapped to something not running around making a mess or getting into trouble. Ok i went off a bit there haha
Dh is really good about taking her when he gets home.
I just really dont buy that the ooh worker needs to get home and immediately get down time, while for some reason the sah does not. I would love to take my "work clothes" off and get in my pj's wash my face, eat etc. It's not like i can do those things during the day.
Dh takes about 30 minutes or so on average. It's not bad and then he takes dd and gives me an hour. He puts dd to sleep then he gets the rest of the night including a full nights sleep. I sleep with dd in a different room - he doesnt even hear her cry or wake up at night.
