Warning...angry vent ahead...
January 20, 2013 at 5:55 PM
Why the f*** does my job description as "mother" include every fu**ing thing. Who decided that it was my job to get up every single weekend for the past 2 and a half years? I am so so so tired of me being the responsible one. For once....just fu**ing once, I'd like to sit on my ass in my own TV room with the door closed and not be bothered for anything. I would like to eat supper without having to stop and do 5 other things. And you ask me why I dont want another baby?? WTF? Are you blind? Dumb? Ignorant?

    That sounds like my situation!  Except neither of us want another baby.  Sometimes I feel like saying "Well I'm heading out this weekend, you guys have fun!"  and when he says he has to work on Saturday I'll be like "Oh. Well I guess you'll just have to figure something out".

    Umm your an adult right? Speak up or be grateful. Many woman don't even get to hold their babies. Much less be bugged by them. You only have 16 or so more years. You'll live I promise.

    And furthermore, if you say you're never annoyed by your kids or need/want a break, then you're lying.

    I sense anger & frustration in your post, and having been where you are, and did for 20 years, I totally understand..  Have you ever calmly discussed this with your DH?  Screaming the anger you feel solves nothing and only ends in more anger.  If nothing else, save your pennies, hire a weekend babysitter and get a hotel room for the weekend. It would save on your sanity, maybe save your marriage and throw a very broad hint to DH.  By the way, my children are now grown and gone, and I would do anything to have a house filled with children and their noise again...enjoy it while you have it.  Time will fly and you will wonder where it went.

    Yes, I have tried conversations. They work for a day or two, then he goes back into his little bubble. It's fine, I mean, all he's doing is teaching me that I don't need him and can do everything alone if I needed to. I try to let him know I need his help as my man, as her dad...and a lot of the time he makes it feel as if I'm being silly. Anyways, this was a vent. A vent is supposed to be an emotional outpouring of frustration. Even if the readers dont necessarily understand or relate.
