    No you don't want gastro. You want what your DH had - man gastro! My DH is not too bad when I'm clearly sick - flu or similar but if I have a headache or feel nauseous he acts like I must be making it up.

    Meh... I tell DP I'm going to lay down and that just means he has to take care of DD instead. He's not even her father and just know that if I'm sleeping/resting, then he's got to do it instead. I'm kinda surprised when people's partners, who are actually their children's father, don't do this. Like it's even hard - to just be lazy as hell and meet their basic needs.

    It constantly surprises me too.

    Along with the comment "DH is babysitting". I didn't realise people babysit their own children...

    'man gastro' LOL - love it!

    I'm rarely sick but when I am, I'm still expected to do everything but when DH gets the slightest sniffle/headache etc, he expects to be pampered! ie., served everything.

    man gastro

    If i'm sick and DH is home he takes over everything while i rest - unfortunately for me i get a lot of pain so he has done a lot of taking over. He never complains or makes me feel guilty - he just does it. Even if i'm not sick but just feel tired or over it he will look after the kids while i go rest. Of course when he is sick he gets the same treatment - i let him rest and do everything. This way we recover quicker and can go back to helping each other out sooner.
    By some ironic twist of fate though i tend get my worst illnesses when DH isn't in the country - so i'm left to just get on it despite feeling like crud *sigh*.

    I hope you don't get gastro - however if you want a day in bed i'd be taking one. When he is well just announce that you having a day off and he can take care of things! DH is on holidays and i have had quite a few lazy days doing nothing while DH does the childcare, cooking, cleaning - not because of illness but because everyone deserves a break every now and again. I wouldn't except a husband who made me do everything all the time - we are in this together.

    Omg my dh says it too (he knows I get p!ssed when he says it)
    I blow up like a mad woman, it's not f'n babysitting when it's your own child mo fo!!
    Why can't they just do stuff like we have to just do it!!

    Man gastro and man flu are the worst! Dh will look after dd while I rest but it's not worth it because the house is always disgusting when I get up. Dd does not enjoying watching you play play station games!
