Dads don't babysit
Scared of the baby
When a mother takes care of her children, she is referred to as being a mother. But when a dad takes care of his children, he is all to often spoken of as babysitting (and let's be honest, women are just a guilty of this language as men are).
NO! The dad spending time with his children is being a father. Dads of the world unite! This babysitting thing has got to come to an end - the sooner the better.
You are babysitting if, and only if, you are taking care of somebody else's children. You can't babysit your own children anymore than your wife can.
