Originally I told my husband that he didn't have to worry about helping out during the night and it made sense when I first thought of it. He works, I'm at home with the kids, it's just different. Well I was basing this off our first baby. With him, I slept whenever he slept. A lot of the time he would fall asleep on me and I wouldn't want to move, so I'd fall asleep too. Now with a toddler and an almost 2 month old I have yet to get a nap when it's just us at home. I have even got their schedules just right to where if things went right, I COULD take a short nap, but honestly that's my time to get things done around the house or pay bills and make appointments for everything.
Also, our daughter has not been as easy as our first. She has a hard time dealing with gas and lately has started waking up constantly during the night needing her pacifier to relax back to sleep. If it falls out before she's REALLY asleep and she's still dealing with pain, she'll wake back up fussing/crying. Finally at 7am when it's actually time for her to wake up, I'm tired and grumpy to say the least. You think I'd be happier with a baby that sleeps from 1-7am without needing to eat, but it's different when it's not constant sleep.
He doesn't wake up ONCE and if I try to wake him up, he'll look at me for a second and just fall back asleep. It makes me so mad that I wake up with every sound and I literally can't get him to stay awake for long enough for me just to finish a sentence. :/ He doesn't have the normal 9-5 job, he leaves the house around 11:30PM and comes home after midnight. He will seriously sleep until it's time to leave if I don't wake him up. I wake him up around 10 and she's already asleep for her morning nap by then and I've gotten our son up, made him breakfast, and got him playing a game or something. He'll wake up and start cleaning which is nice, I know a lot of guys don't do that, but I'm still extremely bitter. Plus we spend absolutely no time from when I wake him up, to when he leaves.
I'm finding myself getting more and more bitchy towards him and only him. I love my kids and getting to stay home, so it's not that. I just want him to be more present with helping me with them. He's a great dad, on his days off he's here for me and them 100%, it's just during the 8 days that he works straight leave me feeling bitter and I don't want to be.
