My confession: I lost my temper today and he cried.
My SO was working on dinner it was 6:30 and the 3 and 4 year old were supposed to eat at 5. It was just the 4 of us no other kids. I was working on the computer in the bedroom. He says can u keep an eye on the kids while I grab a couple of things (store is 2 blocks away) I check the kitchen veggies simmering ok. go out to the patio where grill is on and kids are playing in back yard. The kids immediately start freaking out they are soo hungry. I am like ok I open the grill thinking I will check and see if there is anything close to being done. I take the lid off, knock a bowl of marinating meat on down on the ground by accident and realize the grill is empty. I grab all the meat go inside and begin to rinse the meat off and he walks in. I look straight at him and say "good to know running to the store was more important than the kids". He just says what? I reply in my nastiest voice possible with "you couldn't be bothered to put the meat on the grill before leaving" He says nothing, we are sitting at the table eating, he looks up at me with tears running down his face and says " I didn't want it to burn, and you were busy" I think my heart broke right there, all I could say was I am sorry and I was upset from everything going to shit all at once and that I am sorry I was mean and that he didn't deserve it. I also let him know that next time I would be happy to watch the food and the kids, my work could wait.
I feel so mean. My guy sitting there with tears running down his face and it was so totally my fault.
btw the kids only ate like two bites each and wanted to go play so much for starving.
