Vacation from the monster
My Dh is out of town for the next month for work. He'll be home before Christmas. I didn't realize how much stress my ss3 and sd2 put on me until he was leaving. I was very sad because I love Dh so much, but on the other hand I'm fucking ecstatic because i don't have to be terrorized by his toddlers for A MONTH!!!
I know, I know, I'm so lucky! Anyway my sd for the most part is just awesome, she's very well behaved and only throws an occasional tantrum as kids her age will, but my ss3 is a Nightmare!!! This kid throws more tantrums than any other kid I've seen in my life. Hitting, screaming, breaking things. And it's all over the word No, which is normal at his age, but I dont think the amount of temper tantrums that he has is normal. He's very aggressive and wants to argue about everything, but Dh let's him do whatever he wants and he's the boss.
Recently at daycare he got in trouble because he was holding another kid up against the wall by their throat....he is 3. Another day he was throwing a tantrum and the daycare worker was trying to calm down, he looked at her and kicked her square in the face. And my Dh wants me to constantly be around and playing "mommy" when this monster is over. I just want to run away! But for the next month I am safe and in fucking HEAVEN!
We've been exchanging letter for about a week and I told him that I will no longer be watching princess and monster when he is not home, due to my own sanity. Next letter plan is for him to spend some one on one time with his children. He will put if I just want to go to the grocery store without him and his kids. Or he will want me to take his toddlers with me!!! Uuuuummmmmm NO!
Have any of you had problems getting Dh to let you get away while he actually hangs out with his kids? How did you bring it up?
