  • That would be sooo annoying. Id tell him straight up! If i were sick like that and needed a little nap/ break from the kids id make him, who cares if he's sleepy. Go to bed early

  • Get in the car and go and leave him with the kids. He is ridiculous and he is going to get away with it. He does deserve to be left alone. You cannot ask yoo need to tell him what you need.

  • He sounds like a selfish asshole. If I were you I would be making some serious threats about either him staying and changing his selfish ways or find his personal belongings out on the lawn. Good luck and hope you feel better soon.

  • Omg i would have gone crazy on him. That is so selfish of him. I would be having a serious talk with him about it. You are sick. You need help. He is supposed to help you, and he isn't. Simple as that. It was his choice to stay up all night, it wasn't yours for getting sick, im sorry mama. I hope you feel better!
