Is there anything your husband/boyfriend does that drives you crazy...in regards to your child?

What does your partner do that drives you crazy, in regards to your child? When I'm cleaning or busy doing something and my husband isn't doing a darn thing, our 11 month old daughter will start to cry and he just looks over at me or calls out to me to tell me she's crying. It annoys the crap out of me...like I'm the only one in the house who's capable of giving her her juice or whatever she may being crying about at the time. What do your husbands do that just makes you want to choke them?

  • My husband loves to pick and aggrivate the kids and make them mad. He picks at my daughter, who cries at the drop of a hat anyway, she is the most sensitive child I have ever seen. I can be busy doing something and he will aggrivate them just get them mad and hollaring. Or when he works all day and thinks his day ends there. He will come home and I am with kids all day and he will use I worked today. I am like YOU yeah me too. I cook, clean, do laundry, am the mediator to keep the kids from killing each other! Just because I do not have a job outside the house does not mean that I do not work! Sorry I went on a vent there for a moment,LOL. I love my husband but he does drive me crazy. It is just the man in him!

Then he is like you dont work all you do is go to school, im like but i do laundry and dishes and bottles and try to find a baby sitter if my parents arnt available and its just so annoying and he dont understand why i tell him on dang near a daily basis that i dont like him because he dont know what parenting life is really like!
