since he's sick he can be a dick to you and the kids?
mine must apparently. he was very rude when he got home from work. im trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, i myself am a bit of a grouch when i don't feel well. but im never mean to the kids because of it. after all, it's not their fault, is it? he just had a very sour attitude last night, yelling at them (they are 2 and 11 months for God's sake) for every little thing they weren't supposed to do. then my 2 year old came out of the room after I put her to bed, and he says very sternly to go back to bed. he stammers up to her and practically charges to her bed with her, shutting the door behind him. i felt awful, i went in there and she was so upset, so i took her into her big sister's room (who was at a sleepover last night) and read her another story. she then felt much better and went to bed no problems.
then our oldest, 4 years old, calls us on the phone just to say goodnight. we were already laying in bed, so he could hear her on the phone. immediately he shouts "GO TO BED LILY" and then she wanted to talk to him, and he was rude. just quick, short responses.
then this morning, the babies woke up very early because they were cold! he turned the heat down and i realized today they're not getting any heat in their room so i have to call management and have them look at the ducts. he stormed out of our room to let the cat in and i told him he cant turn the heat down, the kids froze and if he's too hot wear less layers or something. with the kids even in fleece pajamas and 2 blankets, they were still cold. then he just went back to bed, didn't even say a word. ugh!

No, my DH is a baby. He lays in bed and cries, "I'm siiiiiick". Then he begs me to do everything for him. It's annoying. However, I would NEVER let my DH treat our kids like that. He needs to have some nonsense knocked into him. If he wants everyone to treat him with love and respect, he has to do the same with everyone else. No one wants to play when they are sick, but they don't have to be a jerk about it.
