Do you find it to be a pain in the butt when someone shows up unexpectedly?
Are you annoyed and stressed when DH just plans stuff without asking, whether it involves you or not?
Do you like to have a plan to your day, and feel like you have to stick to that plan to sucessfully get through the day?
I just feel like ever since I became a mother I have to have my day planned and if I'm thrown a curve ball I'm no longer a "go with the flow" kind of person.
For example, DH wanted to go to his parents house right after we got home from the store, but the kids hadn't eaten(we don't have the money to go out and eat either) and I needed to breastfeed our youngest as well. On top of all that, they were due for a nap. I got really upset because he just grabbed a couple of diapers from the house and wanted to go. I explained to him that to me it's not that simple....we have to figure out what they're eating (I didn't want to show up with kids hungry and expect my in laws to feed them), I told him if they didn't have a nap they were going to be super cranky. I don't like breastfeeding around my in laws, and I hate even more having to go into another room...
He couldn't understand why I was so stressed out.
Is anyone else like this? With kids, I don't feel like you can fly off the cuff with stuff!
