DH Says I'm going to lose him...
Since yesterday, he's been upset that I excluded SS13 from bringing him with me and my kids to the amusement park. We talked about it last night but we clearly don't see eye to eye.
Since all the kids are gone, I went upstairs to see the damage that was left behind. I picked SS's brand new tablet up off of the family room floor and my sons' shared tablet off of the couch where they both were with a bunch of miscellaneous crap. I was having a bit of a moment after picking up trash that the dogs had gotten into, etc and stated that I was taking the boys' tablets away since they aren't taking care of them.
Dh chimes in with an excuse for SS13 - something along the lines of he's only had it for a few days and he was only here for a few hours before he left, it probably fell, etc, etc. And I was like, well, guess what. If he can't take care of his brand new tablet and I find it on the floor less than a week after I give it to him, then there's a problem.
This quickly re-opened the "you pick on my son" issue from the evening before. Problem with that argument is that I was taking ALL of the tablets away - even though my sons' tablet was sitting on the couch. I get tired of ALL the kids not taking care of things. Uuuugh.
Well, anyway, being irritated already, pregnant and still upset from last night, I just let it all out:
- yes, there's a double standard - and its perpetuated by you making excuses for SS13
- yes, I get irritated with SS because he stomps around the house with a bad attitude or talks back or whatever on a daily basis - and I've had enough!
- yes, both me and my kids enjoyed the day without him - we didn't have to worry about him acting out and throwing a fit!
He acted all butt hurt again, saying that I'm showing him my true colors andn I'm going to lose him if I keep acting like this.
I've locked myself in the bedroom right now.If I wasn't pregnant, I'd have left and gone to the bar or to go stay at a friends for the night!
