to ask DH NOT to take a piss in the morning

Details:

- we live in a tiny 2 bedroom flat (DH shows no interest in leaving it despite my pleading).
- I've got a 2yr old DD & 9 mth old DS.
- DH leaves early for work in the morning. The bathroom is right next to the kids' bedroom. When he has his morning piss he manages to wake me (I'm not bothered about this) and wake the kids (I am bothered about this).
- I'm at home all day alone with the kids, and I'm not being precious when I say, it is physically exhausting. I'm on pills for anxiety and depression and often find it difficult to cope.
- When DH doesn't get up early for work, the kids sleep for at least another 2 hours. This definitely helps me to cope better with the rest of the day.

I reached the conclusion that it must be DH having a piss before work that wakes the kids up. So I suggested to him that he not piss before leaving for work (anytime up till 5am is fine). And he completely blew up at me. He got very angry.

I didn't think I was being overly unreasonable with my suggestion, as I've been preventing myself from pissing after 5am for months now. (Yup, it can be uncomfortable at times - but getting up at that hour and having the kids all day on your own is even "more^ uncomfortable).

AIBU?

Mad thread. My husband pees, shaves, cleans his teeth and showers before work. That's just normal adult cleanliness. Put the kids to bed earlier if you're concerned they aren't getting enough sleep.

Ah, the romance of family life!! How very dare he? grin
When you had your first date, did you foresee that the bastard would wee in the morning?

Lady This one was originally posted a few days before her AIBU post about kids whinging, which has since been moved to Relationships due to the turn of events.

Tbh the events in this thread aren't really relevent anymore, they're a symptom of a bigger problem which she's currently trying (I hope) to deal with.
