  • Yes, but only b/c my DH works 2 full time jobs so I only see him like 2 hours a day so I'm constantly having to cook for him & fix his lunch/snack/dinner to take to work with him and keep his work clothes washed. I don't get any help from him b/c he works so much.

  • Yeah, but I have double duty - a DF and an FIL which is like having 2 more children instead of grown men...

  • Yes, feels like I have to give double lessons about cleaning up after yourselves, finish your food instead of going to the desert first, & no watching TV while you eat! The list goes on, but those are the major ones that bug the shit out of me and truly make me feel like I have 2 KIDS!

  • Oh my goodness you have no idea!! My son acts just like my husband which in some instances just melts my heart, but in other instances makes me go "hmmmm....its okay for a 2 year old to do this, but is it okay for a 26 year old to?" Oh well, I love him just the same :)

  • If it weren't for moms the world would shut down. Seriously!!! LOL Having a SO means that at times you will have an "extra" kid. Ha ha. But we still love em'

  • OMG. Yes, men are overgrown children. Women run everything, in reality, even if it's behind the scenes. :)

  • Nope. Luckily I married an adult. My husband is fun, but he is not a child. Thank God he believes in us being partners and sharing the parental responsibilities.
