In DH's defense, he is really supportive and helpful when he can be but he works really long hours and sometimes I just pop, especially being overseas on our own. When he's home he's helpful. I sleep in DS's room because I just find it easier with feeding and I sleep better if I'm in the same room. Last night was only the 2nd time in 5 months that he'd woken and something else was up besides wanting to eat so I don't usually bother DH because I don't see the point of him getting up when I exclusively breastfeed. The first time it happened he did get up to see if I needed him but last night he didn't. I do see his point why, because DS was going back and forth between chatting and crying he probably thought he may wake DS if he came in or mess up what I was doing. I just needed to vent. It's mostly the 'we should have so and so over for dinner.' It's so easy to want to chat late into the night over a bottle of wine when you're not the one who will be up three times! I would love to be in that mood too but right now all I think about is wanting to sleep or lay on the couch and relax. Not entertain.

I am waiting until my mother leaves before having it out with him.
