Hi everyone. I just wanted to get others opinion of this. I’m really struggling at the moment with my husband, he’s been doing very little around the home and tends to leave lot stuff to me . Should mention tho he does do the cooking (some will prob think I’m lucky) but there still is a lot left to me and he never offers to help and when I ask for help I feel he can’t be bothered . And for some reason I feel awkward when asking him like I’m really putting him out.
Anyways just trying to give you the picture first before my question.
The other day he put our little 2 year old daughter down for a nap and a couple of hours later when I went to get her she didn’t have a nappy on and he said because there were none left!! I was working from home so wasn’t aware and he was off on leave. So he put her to bed with no nappy on and thank goodness she didn’t have any accidents but it could been lot different! All he had to do was nip round to the shop as I was there anyways and buy a packet of nappies but he’s too lazy to do this .
I’m super annoyed about it and he doesn’t get it . Am I over reacting ?

I mean, he didn't even mention to you that there were no nappies?

I it's beyond belief that someone is that lazy that they can't even be bothered to meet their child's needs.

In the words of MN hasn't he given you the ick?

He sounds like a feckless moron..

Is he wanting a mummy rather than a DP?

pictish Tue 23-Feb-21 22:25:11

What’s his take on this? Is he embarrassed?

Voice0fReason Tue 23-Feb-21 22:27:36

That is beyond lazy, it's actually neglectful.

How do you get down to just having one nappy in the house though?

Seekingjoy Tue 23-Feb-21 22:33:16

No he literally came up
Behind me when
I was getting her and said oh yea check her cot it might be wet...this is after couple hours of her lying there! It could been a bad situation!

That is some advanced level of slack. I’d be disgusted too.

What sort of stupid question is this? Are you trying to make the OP feel inferior or are you base level thick?

You don’t have one toddler, OP, you have two. I would read the riot act to your manchild and lay down some basic rules for how to be an adult. And if he can’t manage them, he should go home to Mummy.

This!!
he needs to step up who leaves a baby with no nappy because he can’t be bothered to go get some!!!!
