Why is it that when the men take care of their own children everyone says, "Oh, he's babysitting?" NO, he's taking care of his kids!

Oh, you just hit a nerve right there! My husband and I had to live seperate for about 6 months. During about half of this time he kept our son with him at his grandmother's house while I worked. She complained every day and would call me to tell me, "He is not babysitting again this week". It made me so mad and I said it over and ov er again, "That is HIS son!! It's not babysitting if its your own kids!" I we were staying home it would be "staying home with our kids".... but when men are the stay at home caretaker, its "OH, he's babysitting for her" GRRR. I feel ya for real!!
