Just act it out, and if he complains that you didn't wake him or remind him, just apologize sweetly and blame it on "pregnancy brain".
I wish the blaming it on "pregnancy brain" would work, but whenever i say anything about being pregnant (ie: my emotions/ due to hormones, forgetting something/ due to pregnancy brain) all's he says is "this is your fourth pregnancy, you would think you would know all of this by now." ugh! It's not like I can really control my emotions or my memory, trust me, I've tried.
Like right now, he's supposed to be picked up in twenty mins and he is STILL asleep!!! I'm half tempted to not wake him up and just let him deal with it when the director (HIS BOSS) gets here. But then again, I'm not that mean, b/c he will just get onto me and ask why I didn't wake him up and why did I let him sleep that long. And I've told him in the past that I'm not his mother, I am the mother to my two girls and when his son is over here, I'm his mother as well. He is 32 years old and should have no problem taking care of his own life/ job. I understand that we are in a relationship and that we work together as a team, but I do a lot around our house. I cook, clean, do laundry, feed the animals, plus manage his calender (which I want to do), and pay the bills. And the only thing I ask him to do is to take out the trash and walk the dog (yes, the same one that yanked me to my belly the other day).
Most of the time he is this extremely sweet, very helpful person, and other times, he reverts back to being 8 years old. UGH!!! I'm guessing this is one of those days. Now he will be up all night and I am tired of having to get up in the middle of the night to drag his ass to bed, just so he can get some sleep so he can get up the next morning to work. I mean, when he's on set, he works 12 + hour days and will function on 4 hours of sleep. He's a bear by the end of it, but he does it with little to no help from me. I refuse to baby him during that time.
Okay, I have to get off of here, this is turning into a HUGE rant again. LOL I need girlfriends to have a bitch night. LOL
