Right now Wyatt is napping and I'm neglecting my "duties" and blogging. Now, don't misunderstand me. Josh doesn't care in the slightest if he lives in a clean house, or if dinner is done. He'd just go out and get something. So it's not like he's making me do these things. I do them because it needs to be done. But since it's not a priority to him, he doesn't recognize it as something that should be praised. It still pisses me off and hurts my feelings though. And every time I bitch about any of this, I'm made to feel guilty because he's the serviceman. Look, I know you're in the military... okay, big whoop. I'm pretty sure a lot of servicemen have to take care of their kids and work too. Shit, if I were working right now I'd have to do all of the things I do now and more.
Yes, Josh loves his son and would do anything for him. But no, he's not the primary caretaker. And it's acceptable that he's not because he is working. I know that. But I feel like if I'm in the bathroom and Wyatt is screaming bloody murder on the floor, then you should just press pause on your game and hold him till I get back at least. Isn't that understandable? Am I totally crazy for thinking that he should step up in that way?
I do love my husband. I feel guilty laying it all out there. I'm just so irritated. And Mother's day is in a few days. Big freakin' deal. Who cares? I saw the best episode of The Middle last night.
Isn't that so true?
