DP sleeps too much during the day.

I know alot of men have 'naps' during the day but he can sleep practically the whole day leaving me with 2 children under the age of three. I am waking up for the baby during the night and if our other DC wakes up. He doesn't wake up at all. If he is asleep then I obviously can't catch up. I have started going out without him at weekends and am worried that we'll end up having separate lives with him just sleeping the whole weekend and me spending it on my own with my children. Does anyone have any practical advice or did anyone manage to change their DP from being a lazy git to someone more dynamic or is it a lost cause?

good luck mytime, I think you will need it since he thinks he taught you a lesson with his absence

That does not bode well for the chances of his frontal love transplant lasting more than a week or two

My H suffered from sleep apnea in his youth so I always gave him support with his late nights, poor sleep, lie ins and naps and defended him against people calling him lazy. That support stopped when it got more frequent and he wouldn't get help with it. Turned out it was all about detaching from family life which had become unbearable for him.

Needless to say we are now separated and I just feel a mug for having believed in him. Sounds like you are in a similar position.
