    You are entitled to at least time in the morning, or time in the afternoon.

    Family health is important! And if you feel better about yourself, then the whole mood of the house lifts. He should be making it happen, not stopping it!
    You are absolutely right. And yes I have told him what I want. I hadn't considered the morning as an option but that's a good idea!

    I think he thinks that I a) can sleep during the day, I can't ds is a catnapper and b) can walk during the day, ds needs to be tired to walk, I can't go for long and the dog won't walk with the pram. Besides which I miss going for that long fast walk with my first baby!

    Then he gets stroppy because that's not AT ALL what I was looking for after 3 hours of broken sleep. He was just trying to cheer me up.

    DH does this too....

    It's either turn it back on to him so he's talking about how stressed, tired, busy he is (which is supposed to make me feel like I'm not in it by myself.... but annoys me because all I wanted was to have MY tiredness, stress, busy-ness acknowledged) Or does the 'mock cheer squad'. Love him, but lordy lord.

    Default Re: Does your partner get cranky...

    Yup! How about "oh yeah you had a hard night hey?" *hugs*

    OH the other thing is like on a Saturday if he sleeps in till 10am I say "hey how was your sleep in?" "Aw what sleep in? I couldn't sleep blahblahblah" like it's not humanely possible to just say "hey yeah thanks" like admitting to having had sleep is impossible.

    Nope - but we're not in that situation.

    My partner works from home. I generally go to bed as soon as I can after about 9pm, depending on when the baby needs feeding. He takes the baby into the office at night, and usually works until about 1 or 2am, or sleeps if he's tired and our DD will let him. About 6 or 7am I get up for the day and take the baby, then let him sleep until anywhere between 10 and 12 (depending how much sleep he got). He generally gets a lot less sleep than I do, but does it to ensure I get decent sleep. It's very much appreciated

    No no..... One must never ever ever admit to a) having had a good night sleep
    b) feeling rested and relaxed..
    It's the code, doncha know. lol.

    I'm noticing that a few people who wouldn't have that situation with their partner are in a relationship where both people have stayed at home with the baby/kids. My DH and I split working and staying home so we both get how the other one is feeling I suppose.

    My hubby won't go around slamming doors and making lots of noise because he's not the disrespectful but he does make sleep into a competition and if i say i'm tired he straight away says he's tireder. I think that parenting my 2 is a lot harden then when i worked full time in a daycare centre. I would love for him to be able to stay home for a few months and realise it's not easy but what i really hate is that we have a good friend that became the stay at home dad for about 18months while his wife went back to work and he is ALWAYS saying how it's not hard to do and its so easy but he was only looking after 1 child not 2 kids so close in age like mine. Grrrrr anyway thats my vent lol

    Default Does your partner get cranky...

    No never thankfully!! We usually all get up together. DH actually let's me sleep in heaps because he knows I've been up through the night with DD a lot the last month.

    When DD was a baby he would be up an gone before we were up but he would NEVER carry on like that! I would have given him a serving

    I work bloody hard at home just like he works hard at work. It's not competition.

    I agree MammaNurture. All the douche DHs sound like they need a good case of empathy. Can some of you mothers take a couple of days off for DH or DP to take on the full load of childcare?
    My DH is awesome because he has done weeks with the children alone.
    Even the other day I went out with girlfriends for an entire public holiday for lunch and shopping. I came home to him sitting on the couch with a coffee complaining about how hard his day was with 3 children. Absolutely nothing was done. We had a good cuddle on the couch together and laughed about having too many children which is even more ironic that I'm pregnant with our fourth.
    It goes without saying in our house that we are equals on a team.
