To have thrown a fake strop and stormed off into the kitchen because my DSs are being hideous brats and I want DH to put them to bed?

YANBU, as long as you take your turn on other nights.

Have just completed a month of lone parenting whilst he was away for work, so feel I have done my share recently....

Am also making our dinner whilst in kitchen...

Oh sorry, I thought they were your stepsons - that's why I thought you'd be ripped apart. grin

An extremely good move IMHO

Fake strops are a greatly underused tool in the parenting arsenal imho

I wouldn't throw a strop (gives a bad example), but would definitely "pass the buck" occasionally. Better to pass the buck than to get pushed to shouting smile

No, just that there are two of them and they are both being horrid tonight!

Ha Ha!

It's definitely your dh's turn if he's just back from a month away.

I threw a real strop tonight and everyone is tiptoeing round me now. To be fair i had good reason as the one job i'd asked to be done while i was out picking DD up hadn't been done when i got back and DH & DS were watching tv instead.
