This morning, DS lies about jumping on the couch (when I walked in and saw him), DH is right behind me and sends DS to time out. Okay, I agree, he was jumping on the couch, and he lied about it..

SD was jumping on her matress, and when I had told DS to stop jumping on the couch, I had told SD to stop jumping on the matress (toddler matress, living room campout last night). I turn to walk away and look back over my shoulder and SD is jumping from the couch onto her mattress.

WTF? So I tell DH to handle it

DH: SD were you jumping on the couch?

SD: No!

DH: Chellz saw you

SD: Oh!

DH: Don't do it again!

SD: Okay

Me: Um.. DS is in time out because he lied about jumping on the couch

DH: DS come here

Ds comes in the room

DH: You don't have to do the time out, just don't jump on the couch anymore

WTF?!! So NOW DS doesn't have to do timeout, for LYING, because you don't want to punish your daughter.

Lying and jumping on the couch are time out offenses.. They know better. I told DH that I'm not letting my son get away with the same bullshit he lets his daughter get away with.. She can grow up to not follow any rules, but DS will. At that, I told him that he is not to punish DS anymore.. that I will handle it !! I'm not going to have him send DS to time out and then 45 seconds later tell DS he doesn't have to do the time out, because DH doesn't want to punish SD. Ds should have done that time out.. he lied and jumped on the couch.. screw up your own kid.. don't screw up mine!

 

DH is a wonderful dad during the week, to my son (not his bio child) he attends family nights, PTO conferences, all of DS's intervention meetings, plays with DS, teaches him stuff, reads to him etc. As soon as SD comes over.. he turns into couch dad, who does nothing at all !!
