Tired of it Man in stockings 1 child; Colorado 2766 posts

I'm so tired of my husband talking to me like i'm stupid. I know he doesn't mean to do it, but then HE gets all butt hurt when I get snippy about it. Like every night he tells me "Don't forget to take the dog out before you go to bed".
Umm thanks dumbass I know this. I've had animals all my life, and even if I didn't i'm almost 25 years old. I think I know a dog needs let out when the last person up goes to bed. So he went to bed all pouty bc I snipped that I wasn't fucking stupid and I know to take the dog out.
Great V-day for me!

I know it can get annoying but he's probably just trying to help, why not sit down and talk to him about it?

I guess if its all the time it would get annoying but reminding you to take the dog out doesn't sound that bad to me. Not worth an attitude really.

First world problem, would you rather him remind you to take out the dog every night, or be alone raising your family and reminding yourself to take the dog every night.

not just the dog thing, it's a constant thing. If i'm alone there isn't anyone to constantly talk down to me and treat me like i'm stupid when i'm not.
He does it on an almost daily basis and is starting to do it to me about our son. Like he knows what is best and I have no clue what to do, when I'M the one raising him. I'm with him all day everyday. My husband spends 40mins tops with our son m-f . Sat and Sun he can't even take full care of him. If he is holding him he can't put him down to make a bottle, or go make himself food or a drink. He is completely helpless. I have to constantly remind him, I'm home alone all day long, who do you think does this stuff for me.....oh yea I DO.
it's frustrating!

I do hear where you are coming from sweetheart, maybe you could try to talk to him and let him know how he makes you feel, or even get up on the weekend and leave him with your little man for a couple of hours for mummy time so he can see how much you actually do. I hope all works out in the end xx.

My husband is the exact same way. I sarcastically ask him all the time, "how do you think I make it through the day without your help?" He takes it as a joke and it really mostly it is but it can get really annoying when he comes home from work and thinks he needs to tell me how to take care of our son like I'm clueless.
