Super Mom

When did you get home?

When did you get home, he asked when I walked towards our bathroom to run Zander a bath.

WTF!?  I know he was being sarcastic but this week is not a good week for sarcasm.

I asked so nicely for help this week.  To please help with the kids, so that I can concentrate on getting my work done on time without killing someone. 

Did he do the drop-off of the kids….no.  Did he pick them up…no.  Did he do the rugby run around … no.  Did he do homework? … no.  Did he sit with ALL 4 the kids in the study until the bedtime?…no.

So when did *I* get home?  You probably missed us when you fell down in front of the TV to watch rugby and then moved on to the bed to read a magazine.

You did make hotdogs after I forced you, so thank you for that.

    Sorry Mel- it really is a man’s world. They don’t share in the responsibility and they never will. Blame the mom – it starts with them. I will be raising my son very differently.
