A mum has revealed the hilarious difference between her and her husband's parenting styles - simply by comparing the notes they left for the babysitter.
Mummy blogger Laura Mazza shared two different notes on her Facebook page Mum on the Run, which were written before the couple left the children in the care of someone else.
One note was on a torn piece of paper, with contact details for mum and dad quickly scribbled on it - clearly written by dad.
The other contained multiple pages of colour-coded information about the children's routines, food preferences and bedtimes.
'I don’t even need to tell you which is which. Oh the anxiety of leaving your children with someone is real, right?' Laura wrote.
'I’m almost tempted not to go out but it’s a wedding so we have rsvp’ed. I’d like to say that those notes are the only ones, but I’ve labelled everything around the house, including the bathroom.'
'I’ve also made her come two hours earlier so I can run through everything.Poor girl. I should label the wine as well, she’ll need it. (I’ll also write not too much, as I need her to be sober of course),' she added.
'My husband thinks I’m crazy, but this is just preparedness. Tell me I’m not alone? Lol.'
Laura's post attracted hundreds of comments from other mums who can sympathise with her information overload.
