The other day our kids were acting up (ds12 & dd10) I mean they both getting on my dh's nerves he had worked graveyards and woke up in a bad mood.
Out of the blue I asked him I don't get it what am I doing wrong as far as dicipline these kids they listen to you more than me, they walk all over me. Then I had to bring it up (I don't know why) I asked why do your older kids from a previous marriage (my step kids) acted alittle better when they were little than our own kids. He says bc his ex had a backbone and I don't and when she said no it meant no. I don't know why but that hit me the wrong way.
I asked him how do you know she was firm with the kids you only was with her for 4 years with kids (they were married 10 yrs.) he is like I knew her. As far as I knew she would like to go to bars so I don't see where she was a good disicipliner. I mean my sk are good and well behaived so why are mine so wild :( (my sk are dd21 & ds19)
Anyway yesterday I was having a bad day and he lifted me up so my day went better...but after saying what he said "his ex had a back bone and I don't. I stupidly said we'll remember yesterday you lifted me up I just wanted to let you know "Anybody" could have lifted me up and walked off. (I just wanted to make him feel the way he made me feel) I know childish but that is what I felt :(
he just walked out and left for work. No kiss goodbye or nothing. I know I hit a nerve too but doesn't he realize he hurt me too.
Sorry so long but thanks for reading and leaving a response.
