"If you're frustrated with your kids, then why do you want another one?"
My DH said this to me last night when I got frustrated with my oldest DS (7).
DS had left a stack of books in the living room at bed time and I just was telling him to pick them up and explaining that if he would put things away when he's done with them, he would not have such messes to clean up. I guess I had a crabby tone to my voice because DH asked me what was wrong. My mistake in telling him that I was just frustrated that DS1 won't clean up after himself like I've been telling him to for months now.
So apparantly (according to DH) I have to never get frusterated with our kids in order to be justified in wanting another one.
Does the fact that I get frustrated with my children mean that I should not have another one? Or is DH just being a punk?
Do you ever get questioned as to why you want more kids?
