I'm so livid. On Friday night I came down with the kids sick bug. I was really ill. DH rang from work at 8pm, told him I was really sick. He said he was going to work drinks but wouldn't be late. I said fine as younger kids were in bed and older one can sort herself out but I said remember I'm ill so I going to need lots of help with the kids on Saturday. It's a nasty bug.
Anyway he gets in at 1am, very hungover he gets up with the kids and takes them to the park etc so I spend day in bed.
I've got up today feeling slightly better and the house is a total bombsite. Every room is wrecked (our 3 kids are very messy). The kitchen is a disgrace with dirty plates etc everywhere.
Am I wrong to feel so angry? If he was ill in bed I wouldn't let the house get so messy. He's literally looked after the kids and nothing else. He even got them a take-away for dinner. I know he was hungover but come on, he could have loaded the dishwasher.
We often row about cleaning and tidying as he doesn't get how much I do and what a relentless task it is with 3 children.
Sorry what an essay! Thanks for reading if you got this far
oh twintummy yanbu , my dh is exactly the same , he often comes home after work & points out the parts of the house that i haven't had the chance to get to yet & it drives me up the wall , but then on his day off he says things like " oh sit down for a few minutes will you " cant bloody win sometimes . he rarely helps out around the house but the odd time he will tidy away the dc's toys & gets fed up when a few minutes later they are all over the place again , to which i reply " welcome to my world"
YANBU my DH is at this moment sitting on his arse watching football, totally oblivious to the carnage that my DD is making around him. Men just don't seem to see mess, my DH's excuse is that he is at work all week so it's "not his job", so basically it all gets left to me
you have my sympathy teameric , my dh uses that excuse too , he's at work all week etc thing is though he gets lunch breaks & days off , i don't . grrrrrrr men . girlsyearapart - very annoying isn't it
