Like OldManSky said, you definitely want to set up a second telescope if you want to do visual.
I'm the same with the babysitting part, not a lot. I monitor it remotely using TeamViewer. But I do tend to still try and keep an eye on things since things can go wrong.
I find though, that the two hobbies are so totally different, that I tend not to do them on the same night. Imaging is more like a job. You are trying to achieve a goal and there are many things that can go wrong or get in your way. So you need to have check lists, and concentrate on what you're doing to make sure you've got everything covered and didn't do something wrong. It's a lot of attention to detail and a lot of small steps.
Visual on the other hand, is very relaxing and takes me away to another place. I let my mind drift and just enjoy the sky, the outdoors, and the fresh air. I can spend as much or as little time as I want on a target, and go in whenever I feel like it. There's no task to complete to have a successful night of visual observing. If a cloud passes in front of the scope, I can just sit back and relax for a while and wait for it to pass if I want.
So for me, the two just don't go together. I can't really relax and enjoy the visual end of things if I'm thinking about when the median flip will be, are cables getting tangled, is guiding still going ok, is there a cloud sneaking across the sky that will screw things up ... etc. Doing both on the same night is like taking a "working vacation" ... it's hard to get the work done right, and you don't relax and enjoy the vacation as much.
But that's just me. Your mileage may vary. :-)
