DH has recently decided to start going to boxing training weekly on Friday nights starting 8.30pm. Unfortunately this is also when the kids (4 mth old and a very demanding 3 yr old) bedtime starts. He promises to help me sort out the kids before going, but as bedtime routine starts creeping past 8.30pm the "I'd rather be else where look" is plastered all over his face. I have asked if he can postpone any activities for a few mths till things get easier to which he replied he "needs" to exercise now. This infuriated me as I would not think to leave him to attend to the kids bedtime routine alone, but he thought it was quite ok.
DH has also given me "the heads up" that in a few mths he'll also be starting footy whIch will require training on Wednesday nights starting 7pm (so i'll have to wing it alone with dinner and bedtime) and matches on Sunday (so our day would have to revolve around the matches).
I am feeling angry and feel he is rather self indulgent with himself. I have no problems with his activities, but the timing is just bad. I don't understand why he can't wait till our routine gets easier. I think I'm getting upset coz he has the ability to give himself permission to pursue these activities and I haven't (good ol' mother guilt).
Am I getting fired up about nothing? Anyway I needed to rant and get it out of my system.
