Oh yes.I'm bad cop! I knew it would be this way, it was with our dogs! We haven't really worked anything out yet as baby is 14 mos old. I am hoping he'll see the importance of it as she grows. If not, we may need to seek counseling together to come to some kind of agreement. But hopefully it won't go that far. I think he'll step in on the big ones and I'll be the "daily cop."
