    Default Spinoff - when does it become okay to judge?

    I'm pretty sure 5:00pm Friday until say 9:00am on Sunday is 40 hours. That's 9-10 times more time than my husband gets to himself - that's why it's different.

    I justify it as he lets me sleep in every Saturday morning, he's a hands on dad, he gets the kids up out of bed and fed breakfast while I stay in bed every morning. He used to also do all bath times until DD started her clingy to mum phase so I do that now.

    It's the 1 thing he does for himself. I see it as different definitely. Would I prefer he not go every weekend even on Mother's Day, sure that would be great, but it's 4-4.5 hours. Not 40 hours like the finches. Again different.
    In your calculations why do you not include sleep time with respect to your own family but include it for the finches?

    Edit: Sorry, actually I don't want to get into this. I don't want to start comparing real life scenarios of people on here as it could turn nasty. Please ignore. Your family is happy with half day golf and that's all that matters.

    Thanks for explaining. I can see it's different, but if you are including the Finch kid's and adults sleep time as time to themselves it's probably fairer if you include yours too...otherwise I'd say it's like 16 hours of free time for the Finch's .
    However, in your situation, if that was me I'd not be okay with it...especially golf on Mother's Day. That's a dog act in my eyes. BUT you are fine with it, your kids are fine with it, therefore it's not my place to judge. I don't want Rachael Finch's life, but everyone involved is happy, therefore it's not of my concern 😀

    Every victory is celebrated. My mother threw a party when I got my AF for the first time. I organized a dinner party to honour her menopause. Tho she wasn't as amused. Haha.

    Thing is I do agree with the sentiments of if it works for them, so be it absolutely. *However* it doesn't stop me having an opinion on the situation or making a judgement on the situation or voicing my judgement.

    Just like I'm happy for you to say you wouldn't be ok with the golf. That's okay, you're entitled to that opinion and you've made a judgement call. I'm not about to tell you that you should keep your mouth shut about it.

    ETA okay, 4.5 hours for DH and 16 for the finches that's stil 3.5 times as long 😜

    ETA ETA maybe more than 16 if the daughter still wakes in the night and they get out of night wakings 😜😜

    I'm sorry, but I'm laughing so hard at the menopause dinner party 😂 I could imagine that not being received too well.

    Getting your period is a big thing in some cultures and often involves celebration and gifts. I think it's great that it's not taboo.
