So here's my question new mamas. How do you not hate your husband after you've given birth to your second child and you hear shit like this come out of his mouth:
When asked to hold the newborn during the 24 hour later exam he tells you "his back hurts".
After being up for three days breast-feeding, changing, cleaning, etc baby. Recovering from a natural delivery, and so on...DH comes in with toddler and lays on bed and says' he's "broken" because he's so tired. This after at LEAST 5 solid hours sleep the night before. Granted, he did have to go to the grocery store TWICE and he's had to actually interact with his daughter 24/7 for the last 3 days, but I wonder...does it cross his mind that this is my day EVERYDAY? That I have to wrangle her all day long? That I have to go to 1, 2, 3, 4 different places with her in tow MOST DAYS. That I was PREGNANT for the last 9+ months? And that I haven't seen this side of 5 solid hours sleep in months? I mean, really.
After going to bed at 8:30pm I wake him at 2am because if I don't get sleep NOW I will start killing things and Kailyn is not sleeping 'cause she's gassy but she's clean, fed, etc so she doesn't "need" me. He takes the baby, walks her around a bit brings her back. I snuggle up to her, fall asleep for like an hour, wake up around 5, again at 6 and then Dee is up at 7:30. He sleeps from 8:30-2 and from about 2:40-7:30 and has the nerve to tell me he's still "beat". WTF?!
To be fair, I did ask.
Oh, there is so much more, but really? I just want to cockpunch him.
Thankfully I have my sister-friend here to help out and Dee has been pretty awesome so It's not as bad as it could be. But really, any advice to give would be helpful. I keep trying to remember that he's a loving father and a good husband and he's not intentionally an ass. But wow, it's hard when shit like the above comes out of his mouth.
