You have got to be kidding me?!

Currently Bubbie and I are residing with my parents. I commute to work 4 days a week and work a 10 hour day. 3 of those day I take Bubbie with me. I recently posted my schedule, and you can see I have a full day.

It became blatantly obvious to me today that my own mother doesn't think I am at all busy.

G came home last night. He is normally 3 hours a way, staying with friends while working at a new job. His current job requires him to be in front of a computer most days.

Today he spent the day with Bubbie. Bub's is a little under the weather mind you (teething, loose stool, diaper rash), so he required a little extra attention. I don't believe that he was terribly difficult today from what G told me of the day.

The thing that has me floored is my mother. If she told me once, she told me a thousand times since I walked in the door how much work G did today taking care of Bubbie. Mine you I got up at 4, commuted 1 hour each way, worked on my feet 10 hours and fought beach traffic on the way home.

I am inclined to believe that my mother loves my husband more than me. What's up with that. It's like she is completely oblivious to what I do and deal with. No wonder she keeps calling me a martyr when I complain about how tired I am.

So my husband mines the baby (with both my parents home) for one day and she is ready to canonize him.

I feel sorry that he is married to such a derelict.


  1. Love the pics--cracked me up! And my pet peeve is when people ask me, "So is your husband home babysitting the kids?" Umm...NO...he's PARENTING his children, thankyouverymuch.

  2. Hahah I love the pictures!! It is too bad you were really spending all that time watching trashy tv and eating ice cream instead of playing with your son.

  3. My mom likes my husband more than me for sure! What's UP with that?

  4. Love the pictures! I don't know what's up with mom's adoring every little thing the hubby mom is the same way!

  5. Why is it that the men get special status for doing the plain things we're expected to do?

  6. You've got some mad photoshopping skills! I love it when people think I don't work hard. HA!
