If I didn't have my 3 year old, it wouldn't be that much of a problem but when my wife and I agreed to having a child, the deal was that I would be available to watch her more often than not and at family gatherings, she (the 3 year old) tends to get wound up and becomes a hand full - me being from the north, country, and old school is quick with a spanking so it takes the stress level off my wife.
While I appreciate the encouragement, some times the rules change for the sanctity of the house in which I live. At least it's not the playoffs, then my wife knows I'd be missing parties.
