Quoting Supafly★:" This is true. "
When my son was a newborn my DH had a gaming phase. It got out of hand. I packed our shit. He realised that I wasnt just kidding
and I dont let it get out of hand anymore. Im not telling him what to do like a small child, but I tell him when he exaggerates and exactly what I expect of him when it comes to cleaning and taking care of the kids. It has helped and now he does see how he can help me, which he didnt before
Quoting Supafly★:" I want to do this so bad, but I have nowhere to go except my mom's in NJ. Taking the kids out of state ... [snip!] ... the kids out of state = kidnapping charge. Not trying for that. I'm sorry but what do you mean by "when he exaggerates"? "
Well, when he goes on playing 'binges'
Like its great to have a gaming spree, but it cant interfere with basic parenting and your daily needs. He could have a nights gaming, but if during the day i am sick or need a hand, i expect him to help me out. Being tired from not sleeping is his problem. Just like it would be mine if I would have spent the night on BG. I still have to get up and feed the kids.
Quoting Supafly★:" Oh, okay I see what you mean. And I totally agree. But for some reason. DH doesn't think like that. ... [snip!] ... that. He thinks because HE got less than 12 hours of sleep that night even voluntarily, he deserves a break. It's ridiculous. "
he gets 12 hours????
When is the last time you got that?
Quoting Supafly★:" I guess at birth lol. Yeah he NEEDS 12 hours. It's so crazy. Ideally I would like 8, 6 consecutive ... [snip!] ... now I'm getting maybe 4 non-consecutive. It's tough. I'm hoping the baby will grow out of i his shit sleeping habits soon lol. "
I feel for you, my son just recently started sleeping through the night.
hes three ;p
