At least this morning, when he was compelled to redo the diaper that I had so haphazardly fastened, Nate preceded his lesson with, “I’m not trying to criticize and it’s not a big deal but…”

Ugh, I can relate. Try forgetting your son’s antibiotics because you were rushing to give him dinner after a long day at the office. Boy, did I get an earful from dad when he got home!
Mine is telling me I’m screwing up my kid’s ability to sleep by laying down with her until she falls asleep. …>>… Come to think of it … why isn’t HE the one getting up at 2 a.m. and putting her back to sleep?>>Maybe it’s time to settle the score?
Oh, yes, this I know. I am somehow to blame for all my family’s ills, real or imagined. This morning, Jack told his father that he wanted to have <>him<> make breakfast, because I do not feed him enough. Cue the violins, please.>>His father promptly reported my failings to me, accompanied by the dirty look he has perfected over the years.>>Said I? “It’s not that I don’t feed him enough, it’s that you feed him too much, just like you feed yourself too much, buddy.”>>There is no low too low for me. All’s fair in love and war.
He must have a good, kind, patient teacher. 🙂
you get that <>too?<> I just about lost my shit when I was given impromptu lesson on “doing up a diaper so it does not leak” for the 600th time this morning. What am I saying. I did lose my shit.>>what new breed of man are we cultivating here? (and I am not complaining. really i’m not)
Oh snap!>The score on parenting skills is probably, overall, in your favor.>You must not have gotten the memo that moms are not supposed to mess up.
Thanks for your comment on my site. I appreciate it.>>I agree with Sunshine. I know my memo got lost somewhere.
Oooouuuccchhh.>>(Need a band-aid? I might have an extra one around here somewhere… I use up so many of them…)
Just so long as he handles all the potty training! >>How badly can a girls’ diaper be fastened? A boy, now that I understand after my mom forgot the ‘point it down’ rule and I got soaking wet in the back of a cab.
Nice. Now if the situation were reversed what would his reaction be? I know how that would play out in my house and it wouldn’t be pretty.
Oh yeah. Like Andi said, if I said something like that to my husband, I would get the cold shoulder the rest of the day. Just keep reminding him (and yourself) that you are a TEAM.
My husband said something similar about how I washed his underwear, so I stopped doing his wash for six months. Haven’t heard him utter those words since 🙂 Hang in there mamasita!
ha! and there was me thinking I was the only one getting comments like that.
LOL- I get that all the time from my husband who needs to remind me what my own kids like to eat.
men! I am told that I am to blame because my son has my ‘foreign’ eating habits because he doesn’t like good old spicy indian food. .. he’s only 21 months old for crissake!!!!>>don’t worry.. its not working mom insecurity.. its working dad trying to prove that he knows something better than you!
