When my DH is sick it's like he expects me to take care of him. Like he is physically handicapped and can't get his ass off the sofa for anything. "Can you make me some hot tea?" "Can you get me the remote?" "I'm going to take a nap."

While I, a sahm, have to take care of the children and myself while sick. I make my own gosh darn tea and get off my ass if I need something. I can't take a nap unless both children happen to go down for their naps at the same time. I still have to clean and prepare dinner. 

It's like I have a third child when my dh is home sick haha.

*end rant*


*edit:  Don't get me wrong. If DH is sick and needs something I'm happy to help....until it gets to the point where he is taking advantage of me being home with him.

I totally agree. My dh is like that, if he's off work or home. Luckily he doesn't get sick often and he usually still goes to work when he is because he doesn't get sick pay.

haha DH is kind of the same.  He is the one who rarely gets sick but when he does he takes advantage of it.

 My S/O is more needy than my kids when he is sick.

LOL  Vent away.  Men are like that or at least most of them.  There's no way they could handle being a woman and doing all the stuff we do. lol  Just a big baby....that's what you get when you get a man.  lol  lol  Hopefully he's a sweet baby   :)

Usually in the evening when he gets home on the days I'm sick he is okay. He will help more with the kids but I still make dinner and stuff. If I ask him to boil some water for hot tea he would do it, but it's rare I ask him for much because I'm use to doing it all day when he is gone haha.

My husband has 4 days off each week, so he has the time to help. He is good with helping with the kids. I usually ask him to do the dishes for me if I feel really cruddy
