See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
My dh and I have been married for six months and my DDs,4 & 6, have been horrible to him ever since we got married. They won't do anything he asks of them, whether it's picking up their toys, brushing their teeth or asking to be excused before they leave the table. And it's not just stuff like that. The other day,DD 1 loosened the top on the salt shaker so that when he put some on his mashed potatoes,it all dumped out. She has also put shaving cream in his shoes, she colored with permanent markers all over his tan,very expensive leather briefcase. She also took his shampoo and put honey in it and replaced his cologne with vinegar. She's always been mischevious, but I have no idea where this stuff is coming from. DD 2 cries everytime dh asks her to do something. The other day he had to pick her up from daycare and she screamed and told everyone that she didn't know him and he was trying to 'steal' her. If I'm working at night and he has to give them a bath and put them to bed,dd 2 refuses to take let dh wash her hair,she says he gets soap in her eyes on purpose and screams bloody murder everytime he tries to brush her hair. She says it hurts, even though he tries to be gentle and uses the detangler spray. And trying to get her to bed is hell's own nightmare. She says he reads her stories wrong, he tucks her into bed the wrong way, he doesn't give butterfly kisses like Mommy does,etc.
I feel so bad for my husband,the kids were great before we got married, they even started calling him Daddy when we got engaged. I know this hurts my husband's feelings,because he wants to be their dad (their bio dad is dead) but my girls are just killing him. And we were talking about having a baby,but how can we do that when the girls are trying their hardest to run dh out????
Edit: The 4 year old does not pull pranks,she's just being a brat in general.
