Recently our direct tv bill doubled out of nowhere. So today, we put my son down for a nap. He will sit in the crib and talk to his toys until he falls asleep. Of, course, the second he quiets down, my husband goes into his room to move the fan into the doorway after I told him "Don't go in there. He isn't asleep yet." But what do I know? I only put him to bed four nights a week while you're at work. How could I possibly know his sleeping schedule better than you?So our son then thinks it's time to get out because daddy came in and when daddy doesn't take him out of the crib he starts to cry. Well we ignore it because he'll only cry for about five minutes before he figures out he wasn't forgotten it's still nap time.
So my husband goes into the Kitchen to call the company and find out what's going on. He is told the rates have gone up for everyone and a cancellation fee is $200. He flips out on the guy and hangs up, walks into the living room and hears our now quiet son talking to his toys again.
Apparently this set him off too because he storms into our 2 YEAR OLD's room and proceeds to scream at the top of his lungs "GO TO BED! GO TO BED NOW! WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?! JUST GO TO F***IN' SLEEP!" That don't fly with mama one bit. He came back into the living room and I yelled at him and told him that was completely unnecessary and flat wrong no matter what happened or what mood he's in. He proceeds to tell me "Well if it's not them it's him! And if it's not him, it's you! I just can't catch a f***in' break!"
EXCUSE ME?! This was it for me. I went into our room, called my mother, put two extra pairs of clothes for both of us in a duffel bag, and took our "terrible son" with me to stay at my mother's for the night, telling him I'm sorry we're such a burden on him and he won't have to worry about it anymore. Of course, I don't mean this.
This is the first time he's ever gone off the handle but it was so severe that I was not going to give him even a smidgeon of room to think he could get away with that. I'm not going to divorce him unless this becomes a regular thing but I've made it abundantly clear that we are not coming home until he apologizes. He's called my mom's house several times and I've gotten "You know I love you guys," "I didn't mean it," "I didn't mean it that way," "Why don't I make dinner instead," and everything else and every time I tell him what I want to hear and he doesn't say those two simple words.
But what would you do? Why should he not be held accountable for his words because he "didn't mean it" and "he'll make dinner"? We have never cursed at each other or our son EVER and I feel this is inexcusable. There's no "making up for it" there is only apologizing and watching your temper better. What do you think ladies?Answer Question
