Mom Confessions Mom Confessions
I've been married to my husband 3 years this month. In that time I've gone "out" with my girlfriends ONE time. That one time was just dinner and a drink too, I was home by 11. My husband, generally a reasonable, family oriented man refuses to keep the kids so I can do anything "fun" without him. I don't get it. It's not that he's uncomfortable watching our little ones, he used to do it when I was in school... It's more like he's jealous, but I don't get why. I never object to him playing golf in the summer so I suppose I don't see how it's unreasonable to ask him to keep the kids while I go for coffee once in awhile, or in the case of this evening ask to go look at a wedding dress with my best friend. Do you? Anyone else just feel smothered....

I would try - "tuesday night I'm going out with my friends for a while, do you want to watch the kids, or should I call a sitter?"

Yeah really. What is he going to do???? IF he does anything you have your answer to leave. Period.

Quoting Sassy762:

Don't ask him to watch his own children. Just leave the kids with him and go................


I am a friend, a wife,a daughter but the best title I have by far is Mother .
