Okay, so my turn...........to expect a lie in on both Saturday AND Sunday this weekend

because it is my birthday on Saturday and it is Mothers Day on Sunday?
Just spoke to DP, and we were discussing what the plans were for the weekend. He had invited some friends round on Saturday evening (I dont know if that means I am cooking or we are getting take away yet ), as opposed to organising something with family.
We then talked about him picking something up from work that he had forgotten to bring home that we will need for the garden this weekend. So, he said...."Oh I'll pop to work Saturday morning with the LO's, and you'll get your lie in then, because our friends are coming over Saturday night, and I'll have a few drinks so will be better for me to have the lie in on Sunday"
Err...firstly Saturday night is my birthday and although I dont often drink - I might want to on my birthday. Secondly - it's Mothers Day on Sunday and had it fallen on any other weekend that that of my birthday - i'dve got the lie in.
Mind you...I usually get my lie in on a Sunday, adn DP's on a Saturday.......
hmmmmm What say you all?

Yes - recognition for being born is vitally important. He is very lucky to have me
Which brings me on to the other point of yours.....it is his pennance - once a year after all to run around after me for having unprotected sex
That'll learn him

I think it's quite fair. He will no doubt say he has to have a lie-in for Father's Day and his birthday. But beware because I think Father's Day is a Sunday and you said he normally gets his lie-in on a Saturday - so you may be in for the same thing in June...

Ihave to say that if you get to have a lie in one day, you should get up the other. If by a lie in you mean snoozing til 7ish, if your LO gets up at 5, then that's OK. But my DH 's lie in is until lunchtime and IMHO that's selfish and unreasonable. If you're working then you should be with your kids, you can snooze on the sofa cuddling them, and if you don't work, then sorry, really late lie ins are just selfish. What happened to family time and maybe all having a snuggle together in bed and then getting up and doing stuff?!
