why am I like this?

I feel utterly horrible for feeling this way but am I really in the wrong here? My husband a few days ago told our 4 year old nephew he could come stay the night. No problemo until it is now 10pm and my husband is just now going to pick him up. Our 4 year old goes to bed at 8pm and our nephew stays up much later (this is the first time also that he has ever stayed the night at our house) ok still no problem there. here is my problem my husband is in a band and practices on Sunday so instead of asking if I want to watch both of them tomorrow he assumes that I will. I am also a week away from my due date with our second child and could go into labor at any given second. I love my nephew and feel so bad for being aggravated. I want both of the boys to get a chance to play together but it is already hard enuff to take care of our son on my own. And yes I know I will soon have two to take care of but not to crazy 4 year olds.

  • i think you should be a little mad at your husband! it is too close to your due date for that!

  • He asked him to come over, he should take care of him.

  • maybe it will be ok, i guess if they got too much to handle I could call my sister in law to come get him they only live a few minutes away.

  • I would be mad if he said he could come over and then bailed.

  • Considering you are almost due with another baby, he should have asked you if you were up to it. Men just don't think about things the way we do. Just tell him that next time (if there is a next time), to ask you first.

  • No not at all, if he knew you were going to have to take care of them alone, he had every right to ask you FIRST. My SIL does that stuff to my DD and it just boils my blood. He just doesn't have any consideration for her. Next time tell him no, unless he's going to be three to watch them w/you.
