Just keeping it real here. Being a new parent is hard. Being a part of a parenting team is really hard. MH and I do things very differently and there have been moments when I would rather parent on my own.
I love how he hugs her and tells her his dreams for her. I love how he is so gentle with her and jumps in to change her diaper.
I struggle with how he is slow to react when I need help with her – for example, tonight Roo was hungry and screaming her head off for a bottle and he wanted to watch Italy walk into the Olympic ceremony. Really?! Your baby is hungry and crying and you are putting her off to watch f’ing tv? I’ll do it myself.
I am so annoyed. He bugs me. He doesn’t do things fast enough. I have moments when I really dislike him right now.
Because my parents are here helping out, he gets to sleep in and he seems to do less around the house. It makes me mad because he’s stepping back and letting them take over. He needs to step up.
Is this hormones? Is this normal or not normal? I feel bad but I can’t help but be annoyed. Ugh!
Sorry for the vent. I love my husband but right now I’m really annoyed.
