DS spent the last 2 nights at Mom-Moms so that he could get in some cousin time. Which was really nice bc I was able to try to catch up a little for school... not enough to get a head.. but not day to day on all subjects either) but it KILLS ME when he comes home. 1st I was real excited to go into his room and find him sitting on his potty. he asked for a crittle (skittle) and when I gave him one he said "Mom mom gave me 2" and demanded a second one! this is what she did hte last time we were attempting potty training and he completely shut down for almost 5 months. We had already had the "he gets 1 skittle" discussion before we left him there bc she asked if he could have hershey kisses instead. NO! Then I spent all night trying to get him to go to sleep since DH came home late with him.. did hte if I wait til later he will sleep on the way home and Ill put him in bed crap. which ALWAYS translates to "powernap in the car raring to go when I wake" Not to mention when I got home from work I spent all of my time doing laundry and cleaning our bedroom bc dh has misplaced his work keys. and he wanted to look for them tongiht so I figured I would help him. came home. didnt acknowledge I spent my entire evening doing cleanign and searching for HIS keys that he can't manage to hang on the dang hook at the door (theres a key hodler with like 10 hooks on it!) despite the fact that I needed to get shcoolwork done for TOMORROW. but went to bed instead. so I spent my evening of "catching up" searchign for something for HIM he brings me a wired kid and then goes to bed. so DS JUST got to bed ( again for hte 50th time) I haent even started my schoolwork for tomorrow and I am so frustrated exhausted I can't even focus to do it. and I get to be the lucky one that has to fight the 3 yr old that didnt go to sleep until after 11 pm. this automatically means Ill be late for work. I HATE when he does this type of crud. these are also the times I begin to question if I really want to have antoehr right now. (Dont get me wrong dh does a lot to help around but its football season which means that he's extra tired from coaching and doesnt seem to udnerstand that Im extra tired from teaching and dealing with a 3 yr old by myself every single morning and night AND AF just left. . the orginal deal was he'd take DS to daycare in the mornings so I didnt have to fight him in the morning and at night. he's taken him a total of 3 times in the last 4 weeks. then he had the nerve to ask me when we were going to make a baby when I went through the room to check the monitor to see if DS was still in bed. I pointed out that it sure as heck wasnt going to be tonight. or tomorrow for htat matter. he makes me SO FRUSTRATED sometimes!
Sounds like your class gets a video day tomorrow!
I would be totally upset with DH too, and would probably do some yelling/ throwing things.
Oh man! That sucks. They can be so insensitive sometimes! Sounds like you need to put your foot down on the morning routine of him taking DS to daycare. You can't do everything! He needs to pick up the slack!
I normally drop DD off at daycare in the morning and DH picks her up so I can start dinner. It works well for us. I hope you can figure it out. *hugs*
Ugh, it's so hard to be a mom!!!!! The most & least rewarding job in the world! Sounds like you are a pretty darn good wife too. I hope your DH realizes what went down and lets you know he appreciated all your efforts and sacrifices!! If not, we're always here to @$%^& to!!

omg i completely understand, DH is at work by 6 am so im the one who has to get DS up and ready to bring him to my mom and i get so pissed when DH puts him to bed so late because in the morning im the one who has to deal with the melt down so i got tired of hearing him so when he had a meltdown id call DH at work and say listen to this thanks alot. MEN
Karen I have done that before. Problem is DH has ot be to work way sooner than me an daycare is kinda out of his way. when he has a homeroom he can't get him to daycare and to work on time (bc of when daycare opens) I plan on totally getting payback when football season is over.... bc then he will be able to pick him up... late nights for me at work!
