I posted a picture on my FB the other day of Lyla and DH. My SIL immediately posted a comment about what an awesome dad my DH is. I agree, he is an awesome dad.
Not ONE single person has ever told me that I am an awesome mom (not counting you ladies). Not one. Nobody IRL posts comments on my pictures that compliment my mom abilities in any way shape or form, ever. I just tried having a conversation with DH about it. He doesn't get it. He gets all butthurt about it because he takes it personally, like I'm telling him he is not doing something right. That isn't it. I don't want him to change anything he is doing or for him not to do something, I just would like the occassional pat on the back for my efforts as a parent.
I guess it's just expected of me as a mom to spend 24/7 with my child. Care for her all day and night without any sort of thank you or acknowledgment for the hard work I do. DH even said, "I never would've expected anything less from you." :shrug: Such is Life.
