Have you ever just gave up doing things for the kids and around the house

Just to see what your DH/SO will do? such as get the kids ready for bed, feed them give them a drink or will he just ignore the kids and let them wander about and let you take care of things when your feeling more up to it

  • That sounds like mine. i went out for lunch with a friend a few weelks ago. I got home around 2 P.M. i asked him what he fed the kids for lunch. He says I was supposed to feed them? Some men can be so lazy.

  • Wow, at least 'wheresthewayout' has a sense of humor about it! (Mine does the same thing so now we are working on reconciling our relationship, but that's another can of worms.)

  • No, but I've often felt like it. I'm with you--I wonder what would happen?

    The other day my sons were on the computer. I asked them for help in the kitchen to which they said they couldn't (being in the middle of a game and all). So I just said, "O.K. I'm not making dinner then." They got the message but they're teens. Try it and let us know what happens. lol

  • Despite of how unappreciative someone may be I wouldn't neglect my mother duties let alone live in a dirty and disorganize house. It's not worth it.
