Dh was taking children to see Star Wars this afternoon - I popped out earlier to go to the bank and a few other little errands. While I was out I saw my sister for 20 mins and got back in time to drop them all at the cinema. When dh found out he went mad and said he wasnt taking hte children, i flipped and screwed up his mum's banking receipt (childish I know) and he's now stormed out in his mums car and has said "thats it". I now have 2 very disappointed children on my hands who we have done NOTHING with this bank holiday!

Oh jampots, your dh really needs to grow up, doesn't he?

LGJ Fri 03-Jun-05 15:13:53

What an arse, sorry but he is, he actually needs help by the sound of it.

Jam - how many children have you got? Sounds like 2 disappointed ones and one throwing a tantrum!

suzywong Fri 03-Jun-05 15:18:11

sod him, order-in all the entertainment you can and pay on credit card and put defrosted prawns in his pockets an wee on his toothbrush

What's the deal with people who make their children pay for their anger w/their spouse? It's not THEIR fault there was a row between you two. Sorry, but that's so disappointing for hte kids. How about being the adult and saying, 'K, my feelings aside, I promised to take the kids out for a treat'?

LGJ Fri 03-Jun-05 15:22:27

that grin is at lgj obviously

Remind me not to get on the wrong side of you suzywong.
Yeh order in as much entertainment as you can or go out for a walk or to kick a ball with them or throw frisbees.
Even better you take them to the next showing get a taxi if you have to but take them anyway. As you said its not their fault or yours. If your dh has another go about you taking them just let him know that your not gonna dissapoint them for an argument that you've both had.
You must be livid with him!!!
Why was it so bad that you saw your sister?

suzywong Fri 03-Jun-05 15:28:21

Damn straight Screwbalmuppet

remind me to tell you sometime what I did in my DH's office with a bottle of fish sauce

stressedmummy Fri 03-Jun-05 15:29:30

I feel for you & your poor children jampots.
I have been having similar problems with my H recently & have had a very serious talk with him, saying that I am not prepared to put up with much more.
He seems to almost be going out of his way to prove he is the perfect father & husband ATM, but I know it won't last.
You have my sympathies.

jampots Fri 03-Jun-05 15:30:47

thanks girls ! i just needed to rant. Its also my dad's anniversary so I wanted to go to the cemetary whilst they were all at the cinema!

suzywong Fri 03-Jun-05 15:31:38

oh no, do you think dh knows that? Surely he wouldn't be that mean.

ScrewballMuppet Fri 03-Jun-05 15:32:13

OMW @ suzywong and lgj. Thats gonna have me chuckling to self all day.
Dare I ask about the fish sauce, go on tell me?

jampots Fri 03-Jun-05 15:32:21

yes suzy he does know but only because I told him.

ScrewballMuppet Fri 03-Jun-05 15:34:13

Thats terrible jampots. All the more reason your dh had no right to have a go at you regarding you speaking to your sister.

suzywong Fri 03-Jun-05 15:35:28

Jampots, that is very arsey of him, do you think he is regretting his actions but doesn't know how to be remorseful after being such an arse?

Well I can't remember what dh had done, nothing probably, just looked at me in a funny way, and I went in to his office in one of the rooms in our flat and flicked an open bottle of Thai fish sauce around, including in the pockets of his jacket and poured milk on his chair. To this day he believes it was a rogue squirrel that got in throught the window and sprayed everywhere.

ScrewballMuppet Fri 03-Jun-05 15:47:24

Has he come home yet jampots?

Was it this

suzywong Fri 03-Jun-05 15:48:36

yes that was the very squirrel, hilarious!

anorak Fri 03-Jun-05 15:54:11

jampots, it sounds to me like your dh couldn't be arsed to take the kids out and picked an argument to get out of it.

jampots Fri 03-Jun-05 15:59:58

yes he's home now although going out again - indications are that he is going to look at alternative accomodation - not sure how he thinks he's going to afford that! He said he'd take hte children but in the time that he'd gone I spoke to my friend who suggested the children would like to watch it in their own lounge so I told him to f* himself and Ive arranged for the kids to watch it already!

ScrewballMuppet Fri 03-Jun-05 16:02:40

Brilliant about the Star Wars alternative arrangements!!

Are you guys splitting up (alternative accommodation)?
