My husband works more of 2nd shift job- teaches music lessons after school.....so he usually gets home around 10pm. He and I were both NOT morning people before we had kids and usually slept until 9am- we BOTH then worked in the afternoons/ evenings. I understand he needs to wind down and have some time to rejuvenate, but some days it drives me crazy. I am usually fine getting up w/ the kids, I don't need as much sleep.
Last night we both stayed up getting ready for ds1 birthday today, and he agreed he would get up earlier to celebrate our son turning 4. Well apparently he stayed up later and now wants to "stay in bed and "get a good nights sleep"-- I told him I was disappointed AND I'm mad-- I feel like he's being selfish and letting ds1 down too........
AAAArghhhhhhhh. Sorry if this sounds like complaining,
Otherwise, he's super involved, takes care of kids, cleans house, brings home the bacon......
I just would never consider requesting to sleep in on one of the kids birthdays no matter how sleep deprived I was!!!!!!!
Any perspective, or mama's with a second shifter??
Thanks for reading!
