    Default a vent

    i am greatful my dh stayed home this morning and looked after the kids while i was not well.
    I am however ANGRY he didnt follow my simple instructions.
    DS needs to go to bed at 12.30pm and he will sleep for 3 hours. Give him lunch at 12 then put him to bed. We do this every single day, he is used to it and will sleep wiithout fail.

    1.45pm i wake up from a nap and find ds still awake. Clearly overtired. DH playing with dd, totally un aware. I eneded up having to put him to bed asap, He slept for 40mins and did not stop screming so i had to get him up. DH has gone back to work and left me with.....this.

    Why didnt he do as i told him?
    i feel horrid and ds is all out of whack, grizzling and being difficult.
    Thanks alot dh.

    I would be annoyed too OP! I find my DH is similar and always runs late with timing things for the kids (and himself). I find it very frustrating as it inevitably ends up impacting the kids moods. So, no advice but sympathy from me!

    Hope your afternoon isn't too bad
