So my husband and I were talking on the phone during one of his breaks and we got into the discussion of cleaning the apartment. We have an 18 month old son and a girl due in March. Plus I was in a car accident that put us down to one mode of transportation and less hours at work for me, so in my time at the apartment I watch our son, clean just about everything on a daily basis, and cook dinner for my husband every night he works. I told him if he could clean the kitchen area and hang his clothes up it would make me feel less stressed. He got an attitude with me saying that I get stir crazy too easily because I am always asking friends to come over and hang out and begins to question how I am going to do with two children. Though when I take an hour and a half break while he is here all he does is get onto our son for just about everything. I then question him how he is going to do with two children when I get a better job with more hours. He blows up saying that I should not question his parenting. I pointed out that he had just done the same with me. He went on saying both subjects were completely different things. Did I do something wrong?

So apparently it is my hubby's time of the month. When he came home for dinner he apologized for being a jerk over the phone and told me to make a list of things for him to do in the morning. I'm just glad he realized that just because he is having a bad day at work doesn't mean he can bring that drama home.

I'm glad he came home with a different mind set I'd be really upset with SO if he acted this way.
