I recently became a stay at home mom. I know what it entails. I did it when I had summers off from my school job.
Today I could just slap my husband. I am 23 weeks pregnant, nursing an 18 month old and don't ask him to do anything but take out the trash once a week (I put the bags outside when full the other days), eat dinner I make, do our daughters bath (dinner and bath time last about 2 hours max, as DD goes to bed at 7pm) and give me 15 minutes in the morning to shower. I do everything else. I am OK with this arrangement. I feel like I'm pulling my weight.
He continuously makes me feel bad and guilty about the 15 minutes I need to shower, as our daughter rarely sleeps well during naps. (our shower and bathroom fan are directly under her room so it wakes her when I try to shower during her nap.) He takes his time making breakfast, doing shipping labels, getting ready in the morning. All these things can be done while hanging out with our daughter. I don't understand how he can put on clean clothes I wash for him with the laundry soap/dryer sheets HE wants (I disagree with the chemicals in them, but do it so he doesn't bitch) and wash himself in a clean bathroom I clean and not give me a few minutes while he makes breakfast. UGH!
I know tomorrow I'll be over it and he'll apologize and we'll be good for another few months, but for some reason he just gets stuck on a**hole mode and I just want to punch him in the face (I would never do that, but I'm a little punk rock and gotta say it).
OK. rant over. I know it's petty and not as important as some other posts, I just needed to get it off my giant, pregnant chest before bed. thanks for reading.
