whilst DH is upstairs shouting - 'No DD, don't put your hand - oh that's gross. yuck yuck yuck'

It is such fun to hear him trying not to directly call for help.

It's benign neglect. Very fashionable.

I went to work.
I came out of work early to pick poorly DD up from school early.
I shopped for dinner.
I cooked dinner for 5.
I cleared up after cooking for 5.
I put a wash on.
I will iron everybody's stuff for tomorrow.

DH has been to work and eaten the food I cooked.

He is now doing his bit by sorting out 7yo DD's bath and I am vegging on the sofa. Enjoy the p&q smile

See now that is one of the benefits of doing this on your own, granted you have every single thing to deal with but you DONT have the additional toddler project all sorts of angst on you.....

Enjoy, if the shouting bothers you, put some headphones/earplugs in. That'll bloddy well teach him to appreciate you a bit.

I have just broached the sunject of what went on upstairs. Apparently DD (just 1)was in the hall DH was having a pee, not concentrating on where she was and before he knew it she was holding her hands in the flow. She then went to lick her hands but he caught her and rapidly got her hands under a tap. He has also asked why I didn't some to help but I don't drae tell him I was too busy starting a thread grin On the upside he now knows his pelvic floor muscles work.

It's very important that your DH has this special time with the kids, he really should be thanking you.
