And he admitted that he secretly watched his wife with their 3-year-old twin boys on their nanny cam.

But what he saw said otherwise.

He went on to explain that he was at work when his smartphone was notified by the nanny cam app...

Their nanny cam was connected to his smartphone, and when it asked him to rate the app, he opened it up to try and disable this irritating notification.

"To my surprise, there was a live feed from the living room onscreen. I'd thought that we'd disabled the cameras," the dad explained.

"But in the feed, my wife was on her tablet with noise-canceling headphones on when the boys were playing kind of rough with each other."

His wife seemed completely oblivious to the twins...

"[Fighting] is something that they're not allowed to do, and she was just ignoring it," he went on to write.

He was tempted to confront his wife about this later in the evening...

"But that afternoon I had the urge to check the app again, and they were eating unthawed breaded mozzarella sticks from the freezer box while my wife was FaceTiming someone and still wearing her noise-canceling headphones," he said.

This caused more concern for the prying dad...

"It was so bizarre and unexpected, I opened up the cloud storage and took a few looks at older videos throughout the week. And every time, she had her headphones on and was practically ignoring the kids," he went on to say.

He decided to ask his wife about her behavior when he got home from work...

"I went home and told her I wanted to talk and said that I'd noticed somehow the cameras were left on and I was worried about her. She'd looked really checked-out and that was absolutely unlike her, was something the matter?" he asked.

"She seemed defensive saying maybe she was just tired when I looked, and how did the camera get turned on anyway? She sure didn't do it."

His wife felt betrayed that he had secretly looked at the nanny cam...

"She got upset with me for looking through weeks of videos instead of coming to her right away when I'd noticed the camera was recording when it shouldn't be. She said I should have told her and not watched," the dad explained.

"I told her I wanted to talk about how she was doing, what was up, and she just shut down. Saying she was fine, and that she wasn't talking about s*** that I had no right to be looking through."

The dad ultimately turned to Reddit for advice...

"I feel worried; it's like a switch seems to flip when she's alone with the kids versus when she knows someone is watching. She's so attentive and present when we're doing stuff as a family, or with family friends around. But it looked like she was 100 percent checked out when she thought nobody would see," he explained.

Many Reddit users felt the dad was right for being worried...

They're your children and you have the right to worry about them," commented one user. "Likewise, she's your wife and you should have a mature conversation about this like mature adults. The fact that the kiddos aren't supervised enough to the point of eating unthawed food is horrible! You are NOT in the wrong for worrying about her or her actions."

However, some feel that the wife's behavior isn't normal...

Someone else replied, "I’m a childcare provider and have worked as a nanny. It can be exhausting and boring spending ten to twelve hours with 3-year-olds... I’m sympathetic to someone who wants to check their phone real quick or keep a podcast on in the background to hear an adult voice. What you’re describing is not that and I find the noise-canceling headphone particularly disturbing."

And some pointed the finger at the dad...

"Uhm, dude? Taking care of kids is actually exhausting like you wouldn't believe. She kind of needs those breaks," one user said.

This is a tricky situation...
