I'm totally disappointed :-(

Posted by   + Show Post
My 13 year wedding anniversary is Tuesday. My husband texted me on my way home from work to be ready at 5:30 and wasn't telling me where we were going. I got all excited! Well I get home and showered and discover he has the kids dressed in their "sunday best." Yup, no sitter... He has planned to take our two children to our anniversary dinner. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids but they are 5 & 3 and not the most fun to take to dinner since I spend most of the time taking someone potty or reminding them they have inside voices. I won't lie, I'm totally disappointed, I was excited to be getting a date night :-(

Then you just need to tell him you're not playing that anymore. But you have to stick to it. And there will be an arguement, and there will be whining. But oh well.

Quoting Punkie74:

We tried that on Mother's Day... It was not a success... Dad is not the best at getting them to mind... They know he's a softy!
Quoting EireLass:

Why doesn't he do potty time, lower your voice time, etc? Why are you always doing it? Tell him they can only go if he's willing to take over the dinner time parenting....you're not in the mood.
