    Default Treating DP like one of your kids?

    So I was in toys r us the other day & heard a woman screeching, "Darren! Darren!". Thought nothing of it except that you don't hear of many kids called Darren nowadays.

    Anyway then she comes into the aisle I'm in where the metal Thomas trains are & hisses at the man near me, "Darren! Listen to me thank you! The wooden ones are over here like I told you!" and stomps off in a huff while he meekly follows.

    I started to get all judgey at the wife harassing her poor husband and speaking down to him when I realised how easy it is to get stuck in mummy mode & speak to your other half like he's one of children. The other day I was telling him off for biting his nails and then realised what I was doing.

    Anyone else guilty?

    I guess I am a little bit. But DP is too lol. I suppose as you said OP it's easy to get stuck in parent mode sometimes.

    I get stuck in mummy mode alot. I'm always catching myself out when DP is in a bad mood I usually tell him to stop being yucky and rude to me LOL. Luckily It's usually just the tone of my voice haha

    Yeah, I'm guilty. But not as much as the woman you saw OP.

    If he'd only act his age, not his shoe size!

    Yep I do it. Maybe if DF wouldn't act like a kid I wouldn't treat him like one. I ask him to pick up his clothes more than my 3 yr old and I am sure DS1 only started biting his nails after seeing his Daddy do it so much!

    No I don't, if I did he'd pull me up really quick (he hates being talked down too, which is perfectly understandable, he doesn't do it to me either lol).
    My aunts do it a lot to their husbands, I find it pretty demeaning and ugly to be honest (no offense meant to those who find themselves slipping up and doing it ).
