This post brought to you courtesy of PMS

I love waking up in the morning to hear my DH griping about me when he thinks I'm asleep. Actually criticizing would be the right word....

I clean, cook, do laundry, run the kids, take care of the finances, handle any and all doctor appointments, handle all insurance issues, schedule all appointments here to and fro, the groceries, oh yes, and just the smallest task of caring for our daughter with many health issues-I do all this and a lot more without complaint. It's called parenthood---welcome to the party. I absolutely cannot stand the criticism behind my back. I hate the passive aggressive crap and I hate to be waken when I'm up half the night taking care of Lillian only to be being bashed---in front of the kids while he's sitting in a chair doing NOTHING.Oh and lets not forget that despite how tired and emotionally exhausted I am I also need to be a love goddess at midnight when I'm finally able to get my sweet little peach asleep with NO help.

Once again, not complaining, I love being a Mom and I'm happy to do what I do. But please don't criticize. I'm hard enough on myself.

OMG I think I would have strangled him!!! What nerve! I am so sorry. And don't blame this post on PMS, blame it on the real culprit, an inconsiderate husband. We are supposed to support each other as spouses, not tear each other down. He'd better hope he is cooking up something real special for you for Mother's Day, separate from what the girls get you. If he doesn't, you let me know and I'll come and kick his butt!!

I hope you have a better weekend and a wonderful Mother's Day.

UGH! DH and I got into it last night briefly because he got shitty with me about not sending his work Am Ex $15 for personal stuff he charged because he asked me once a week ago to do so. Hmmm. I've been a little busy whilst you've been half a country away. Here's a it your own cute self. Then I went to bed mad and woke up mad and am still feeling slightly mad and underappreciated.

Yuck! That doesn't sound like any fun whatsoever. Hope he gets over himself and you can enjoy Mother's Day!
