My husband and I always end up in an argument on Sunday mornings about who gets to sleep in ....and today was no different.
I am a stay at home mom, but I also babysit everyday... I clean for hours each day ( including laundry and scrubbing the floors everyday) , I workout , and do activities with the kids all day long, I am literally with them all day everyday I do not even go to the bathroom alone ... and even though I love them more then anything, I sometimes just want a few minutes by myself ( which it is why getting to spend time in bed alone once every other week is important to me ) ...
My husband has a sit down office job that he loves, he has alot of friends there, and even gets several breaks a day. When he comes home he eats the dinner that is waiting for him, he then watches his tv shows while i bath the kids, he then gets on the internet while i put them to bed ...
every other weekend we go out of town to his moms house ... so i came up with the idea that those weekends are the ones that I get to have that morning to myself and then the next weekend he has his....and he agreed to it - until it came to my time....
So this morning we argued in bed because he wouldnt get up - his excuse is that he has to get up early every morning for work...that might be true but he also gets to go to bed early/ Our daughter is in a habit ( that i havent gotten her to break yet ) that she will sleep for about an hour at a time and then stay up all night , which means I stay up too.
Last night I wasnt able to go to bed until after 4am , he went to bed at 11pm... but yet when 7am came and my son was wide awake he would not get up with him, and basically said if he gets up he isnt watching our son ( meaning I would still have to get up anyways) ....NOT only that but he is now back in bed taking a "nap" after only being up for 2 hours...
myabe I am just grumpy from lack of sleep but I am sooo PISSED OFF
