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 have always wondered if these posts about conversations with hubbys are made out to make the woman to be nicer. Every time i see one on here the woman is always so sweet and nice. I just wonder to myself did it really go down like that. My dh would never blow up over something unless i was being a bitch back. Just saying.

 I'm like you, I can't sleep with the light on, not even a nightlight.  IDK why it annoys me and will wake me up.  Weird I know.

So, she's selfish for wanting her way, but he's not selfish for wanting his way? Why isn't he selfish for all of a sudden choosing to engage in a power struggle over something so trivial?

That's like saying if your DH all of a sudden decided he wanted 4/5 of the bed that it's selfish of you to not give it to him.


Quoting Anonymous:

Yes, she is. Simple as that.

I would have looked for monsters, but I'm sure the monster was staring him in that face. :D



Quoting Liyoness:

She's selfish because she wouldn't let him have the hall light on and offered alternatives? 

Jeez. Would it have been better if she'd offered to look for monsters under the bed and make him monster spray just in case one slithered in from the dryer vent? 



Quoting Anonymous:

I think you're selfish. 

Seriously selfish. If anyone took the time to see, it was revolved around you. 

You can't sleep with light, You had to get the night light, You aren't going to apologize. 



I've read some of the things you've put. Everything is making him seem the villian while you run around like an innocent. 

Even the tone of this post is sarcastic and condescending.

Such a selfish woman you're being.

Ummmm... This in NO way directed at you momma, but i feel the need to ask..... Does he still breastfeed to? He sounds like my 2yr old- whiney and throws a tantrum when not getting her own way. :(

Enjoy your evening alone. Keeping my fingers crossed for you that he's over his PMS tomorrow.
