After 3 very busy weeks I told my husband I would be taking this week off to catch up on some household items and spend a little extra time with the boys(and on me). It figures that this week both the boys would come down with a cold as well as my husband felt run down/tired and I would be left to care for everyone 24 hours a day. I've felt tired all week as well but my policy is life still has to go on or no one would have clean clothes or food on the table while Mommy is sick.
Monday the boys both woke up with runny noses and I was exhasted by 1 pm. My husband took the next day off work and relaxed in bed all day while I took both boys to an eye appointment downtown (at 9am) and then he had a nap with our youngest while I took the older one for a hair cut and at 5:30 I ran out for a Chiro visit that I have been waiting weeks for. He was still tired Wednesday, Thursday and today but guess what he still kept his weekend plans dispite being tired. Where did he go you ask? Off to Golden to enjoy some time on the mountian with some work associates and spend a night in a hotel and have meals catered to him.
I know I choose to be a WAHM but is it really that hard for a husband to understand what we go through in a week? Our work is like working two jobs (non stop if you have children who still get up at night) and would it kill them to help without being asked once and a while?
Some days I wish we could switch for a week just so he could see what I really go through on a daily basis. I don't think one day would cut it for him.
