Would you be offended if your SO told you this??
I'm not a mother but my SO has kids from his previous relationship. He told me in the beginning of our relationship that he wanted a baby with me. I got my hopes high and thought I was going to have a family with him. Well, I think he suddenly changed his mind about us having a baby because he told me he needed to rethink about it. I gave up on my pregnancy plans but I told him I really wanted to become a mom of at least one child someday.
Lately my job has been really stressful. I've been working full time with overtime hours during the week. I get home every night and cook for me and my SO even though I'm tired. Well, I've been asked to work 2 Saturdays so I have very litttle time to relax lately. Yesterday I worked from 9 to 3 and when I got home my manager asked if I could do overtime the next couple days again! I told my SO I didn't know what to respond as I was stressed and tired. And he told me: "WOW and this is how you want to become a mom..." As if I'm not allowed to ever be tired or I will be an unfit mother because I'm whining about working too much. I got really offended. So are parents supposed to be extremely stressed out and just pull up with it and never complain? I don't get it.
