Day-Off Smackdown

Isn’t funny how when movies and books and music depict romance they don’t cover the real particulars of relationships? For instance, who is more entitled to a day off from the kids, mom or dad?

Well, I have decided where Hollywood and literature have let us down, I will try to pick up the ball.

  1. So this is the fight that my husband and I have every Sunday. I am a stay at home mom. He works 6 days a week and says he needs a break. Sometimes I feel like a single parent who has lost touch with the outside world.

    It’s nice to know that someone is on my side.

  2. My husband is planning to take his child from a previous marriage to Paris in a couple of months, our baby is due any day now… I’m not TOO please about that but keep that to myself to minimize the evil-step-mom label that is so easy to dish out. Perhaps it’s good for them to bond, since his child is already rather jealous of the new sibling…I guess it’s one of those slight disadvantages of previously married men. I’m keeping my frustration to myself….and the world wide web.

  3. i hear you. make sure it’s not at too critical of a time for you and that you have some back up help. But, yes, sometimes when you are the subsequent spouse/parent you just have to suck it up.
