SO and I have been together since 2004. We have 2 kids together (5 & 6). Our #1 reason we fight is over how we raise the children and his irrational mood swings. He accuses me of babying and coddling too much and I see his reaction to my nurturing ways as totally unjustified.
We both work full-time and when we came home last night from picking the kids up at school, DS was a little whiny after the car ride home. SO flipped out over what is NORMAL 6 yr. old behavior. We get to the house and DD flops on the couch tired and asks daddy for a blanket. He says no - get it yourself, youre not a baby. I interrupt and say she is cold that's why she wants a blanket. Just then DS comes to me to show me a scratch on his arm and asks for a bandaid. Before i even say a word to respond, SO loses it and goes "Would you stop babying and coddling them so much! They act all whiny because you do whatever they want!"
I swear he is the one who is the big fucking moody baby. How is what I did babying or coddling? I am a mother who loves her kids!!!! In SOs undeserved defense, he is not normally like that but I swear he has male PMS because he can be super moody an irritable over nothing. Ugh.
