Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

If I was wrong I'll go apologize.

DH left the light on on the stairs.

I turned it off.

He said "leave it on, it's dark without it."

I said "youngest kid is 8, and perfectly capable of finding a light switch. The light will shine in our room and I know this is silly but it's really bright and bothers me. Can we please leave it off?

DH said "I said leave it on."

I said "that's why I have a nite light plugged in on the stairs, so there is some light but not enough to keep me up. its such a small thing but us important to me."

DH said "the bulb is burned out."

So, I replaced the bulb.

DH got mad and said "you just HAVE to make me wrong, I'm sleeping on the couch!"

I said "no, I wasn't trying to do that at all. I'm just trying to find a good solution for both of us. it's called compromise. I give a little. You give a little."

He was like "no it's just all about you! You you you!"

I said, " If I had my way there would be no light. You want a light, so I did the smaller bulb in the night light. If you want, we can just sleep with our door closed and put the big light on."

He said "I'm not sleeping with you, all you care about is yourself."

So I got mad and told him not to bother coming to bed at all, if he wants to punish me for trying to compromise, well he can just stay out there until he remembers I'm not one of the children, and he can't punish me like I am.

If you think I'm wrong, tell me and I'll apologize.
Edited for readability.

I don't see how you're wrong. I see you married a man-child, but I don't see how you are wrong.

Does he think your marriage license is a deed or title of ownership?

Woah he needs to chill. Give him some chocolate and tell him he's pretty.

This is one of those bright lights that you see all over the house and its right outside our bedroom door. I sometimes put it on for extra light to do my makeup.

Sounds like he's on his manstrule cycle. Let him sleep on the couch. Hopefully he's in a better mood tomorrow.
