I'm a homemaker and my Mom is getting a community award and tickets are limited. I told my husband that he will need to have our newborn and his (very troubled) 5 year old for a few hours during the day. He complains about anytime he has to deal with both at once. This event will be 45min-1hr from where we live so I asked if he would take the boys to the local science museum which would be 15min away from me. He went on a rampage about how insulted he is and its said just pump a bottle I'm not leaving the house. I told him it has nothing to do with him, I don't feel comfortable being that far away from my son and he continued scolding me about this. We have very different points of view and he constantly travels. When his son was a few months old he left him with a babysitter (non-family) for over a week to go on vacation and I could never imagine doing this. Help!! I need him to understand this is about my need to be close to my son not an attack on him.
