ds wanted to go out for the day yesterday culminating in sleepver, however it is dh's birthday. i asked ds to ask dh, who said, he didnt mind. the first day out fell through but he went on a different day out, different people, then rung to say could he sleep over at so and so's.
i asked dh who was feeling pissed off anyway, cos we were shoe shopping with dd's... bit stress inducing experience... so dh said he didnt care anymore!
thinking he hadnt minded when the first sleepover was suggested i told ds, yes.
sigh, there followed an upset dh and i shouldnt have let ds go!!
Men don't do that? Actually men are just as capable of answering a question sensibly as women. It's been said a million time,s but if you go about saying 'oh, men are like this' you are allowing them to be like it. Not all men are like this. Plenty of women are. They shouldn't be.
Ahhh I hate hurt thing that some people do when you take them at their word. I don't do telepathy and when there is more than 1 person in a family you can't always put them first and spend the day guessing what they want.
I thought it was only women too. Then they go on MN and say AIBU: I just wanted dh to make an effort on my birthday - why did I have to explain this to him?
I reckon it was the shoe shopping that did for him. I'd be horrified if dh took my shopping for dcs shoes on my birthday. It might even make me come over all passive aggressive, which isn't my usual suit.

Ahundredtimes - I think the shoe shopping was the day preceding the accused's birthday.
I'm now convinced this is nothing to do with the sleepover and all to do with turning girls' shoe shopping into a family outing. Were there queues? Were those Clark's waiting tickets involved? Were you No 73?
