visitation vs babysitting

My wife goes out a lot. As the father, I don't consider staying home with the kids "babysitting" but I have a feeling once everything is finalized, she won't change her lifestyle and I'll be asked to watch them randomly - besides visitation - so she can do what she wants. Clearly I'll want to see them as much as possible, but how do I create boundaries of respect so the situation isn't taken for granted? It seems like it will be hard to say no out of principle and not feel like a bad father. But if I don't set expectations right away I can see it becoming an issue. Thanks,
