I mean, we both work full time, yet most everything outside work is apparently my responsibility. And don't think I can take care of cleaning, cooking or paperwork during DD's waking hours. No way! Obviously I can try to do some cleaning and cooking, but minimal and with a 2-year old attached to me. Everything else is once she is in bed, but he can walk off and do whatever any time he pleases. And he acts like he had to get up early with DD, but it's me. He's in bed still. This morning DD was up at 5. I got up with her and he slept until 8:30. Then she wanted to keep playing with me so I was up all morning until 11 when I finally convinced him I needed a break since I've been up sick a few nights. I got less than an hour before he comes waking me up to make lunch. Seriously?! At least if it were just me I would not be resenting a grown man for not letting me sleep. I also put her to bed every night by myself. While I spend an hour bathing, dressing, reading, etc., he's watching tv, so I can come out after and pay the bills or do the laundry. Grrrr..
But the worst is the discipline. Everything I do is undermined by him. I discipline DD and he comforts her. She throws a fit, he caves and gives her whatever she wants. And he gets mad when she is screaming and I won't give in. So we get nowhere. It's terrible. I wanted 2 more kids. I still do. But not with him. So I guess I'm not getting any more. Because I do still love him so I'm not going anywhere, but I just wish he could parent with me instead of against me. Argh. I just need to vent.
