To think he could have put this back in the cupboard?

DH was working from home today, I was out. I came home and went upstairs to our en suite and there on the side of the bath is a tube of thrush cream (lid off). It doesn't live on the side of the bath, it belongs in the cupboard above the toilet that my younger DCs can't get to. Thankfully they hadn't seen it so there were no questions for me to answer. But they could have and more to the point I don't want to see it.

He sees no problem with leaving personal stuff like this around and while I'm not a prude I think some things should be put away!

AIBU???

Mmm. I just want to know why you DH is using thrush cream. grin.

HeinousHecate Thu 25-Oct-12 20:06:56

Oh dear. Is he a bit itchy then? poor bugger.

Yes, he should have put it back.

What if they'd mistaken it for toothpaste? grin

Apparently he has thrush, according to him I gave it to him. I have no symptoms though. It's his way of letting me know he has it I think. Like he leaves the cereal box out when it's empty rather than putting it on the shopping list.

or going out and buying it...

cathkidstonbag Thu 25-Oct-12 20:08:22

Exactly toothpaste. Or eldest DD would have been absolutely horrified to see it and know what it is.

And the bloody lid left off FFS.

If it is his way of letting the prudish you know that he has thrush and therefore you probably do too, then that is fair enough.

Take the hint and get treatment yourself. Be a grown up, not a prude!

We haven't had sex for 2 months so I know I haven't bloody got it!!

MrsTerryPratchett Thu 25-Oct-12 20:10:48

What a strangely passive aggressive DH you have.

McHappyPants2012 Thu 25-Oct-12 20:13:01

2 months without sex bloody hell shock

Aibu is getting so boring lately sad

This is a petty annoyance surely or is it representative of how things are in your relationship?
FWIW my DH is very messy. Sometimes it irks me but not enough to post about it. If he left something out I would barely notice it.

cathkidstonbag Thu 25-Oct-12 20:16:13

Yes it is petty, sorry about that. Had it been toothpaste or whatever then no problem. I just think leaving that kind of thing out with young DCs is a bit grim. Nothing else was left out, so it's not like it was in amongst a whole load of toiletries.

GhostofMammaTJ Thu 25-Oct-12 20:21:18

How old are your DC?

cathkidstonbag Thu 25-Oct-12 20:22:19

5, 10 and 15.

BrianAndHisBalls Thu 25-Oct-12 20:28:30

why would you or your dc care about a tub of thrush cream? confused

TheAccidentalExhibitionist Thu 25-Oct-12 20:29:12

Don't apologise, no need, just wondered if this is about a wider issue in your relationship?

Naghoul Thu 25-Oct-12 20:30:38

It's annoying when anything is left out on the counter, every fucking night I go and put the bath toys and the shower gel away after DH baths the DC.

I suppose I should be glad he bathed them.

Anyway. It's thrush cream. Just thrush. Kids can get thrush, it's not a wierdy shameful thing. If your DC has itchy bits I hope that they could come to you without feeling all blush about it and going to the doctors.

it's just thrush.

GhostofMammaTJ Thu 25-Oct-12 20:32:35

The five year old won't care, the ten year old may ask and is old enough to get an honest answer and the fifteen year old already knows!!

GhostofMammaTJ Thu 25-Oct-12 20:33:06

BTW, with those gaps, you must be due another anytime soon. grin

cathkidstonbag Thu 25-Oct-12 20:34:54

It's still medication. Do I want my 5 year old playing with it? No. I don't leave my excema cream out because I don't want her touching that. My 10 year old would probably ask me what it was and tbh I don't want to get into that discussion with her. I just don't think it should be out. But obviously I'm in the minority.

cathkidstonbag Thu 25-Oct-12 20:35:35

Most definitely not due another!

IvorHughJackolantern Thu 25-Oct-12 20:36:14

Well I never knew blokes could get thrush.

There you go, every day is a school day.

(In my defence - as I am assuming this is a stupid thing to not have known - there are lots of far more obvious things that I'm oblivious to).

shrimponastick Thu 25-Oct-12 20:38:51

So -he is untidy.

Thrush is no biggy.

At least it was in your en-suite. Isn't that private from the DC? Or do they go in there?

Tell him to tidy up after himself. Problem solved.

cathkidstonbag Thu 25-Oct-12 20:41:39

No he's not untidy. He's obsessively tidy. That's why I'm struggling to understand this. He's making a point but I have no idea what it is. Yes it's an ensuite but the DC occasionally use it, which I'm fine with.
