Mr. Mom looks to be a little grumpy about being mommy!

So while I work 9-4 this week for a three week summer camp that I'm doing this summer, my husband is being Mr. Mom. He's done a good job for the most part. But as we're nearing the end of the week here are a few questions I have for him? And my "oh wait, I think I know the answer to that"!


1. Why are you freaking out that the baby dumped her spaghetti on the recently cleaned floors?
  Oh, you mean it is incredibly irratating when you clean up everything and they come right behind you destroying any kind of work you may have just spent hours completing.

2. Why are so irratated with Averi wearing 40 different outfits a day?
 Oh, you mean those 40 different outfits a day generate ALOT of extra, unneccessary laundry.

2. Why are you calling me in the middle of the day to tell me there's no TP? Aren't you in charge this week of running to the store at night if there's anything needed for the next day's survival?
 Oh, wait, I don't have an answer for this one. I just find it funny like what the hell do you expect me to do about it.

3. Why when I walk in the door you're dead silent and seem slightly irritable, like you're annoyed by something?
Oh, you mean, taking care of everything all week is exhausting and as much as we love our children they can really wear on your last nerve when you're the only one there to handle the constant demands and caretaking all day.

4. Why the dirty looks when I inform you of cleaning chores that are still left to be completed by the end of the week?
Oh, yeah, the damn housework to do list NEVER ends and it is freaking annoying sometimes.

5. Why now at the end of the week on the hottest day of the week, you can't wait to escape out to the backyard to mow the yard?
Oh, yeah, because sometimes you just want to runaway from everyone and just have a quiet moment to yourself even if it's in the most undesirable place.

I just found it amusing that my usually patient, easy going husband was starting to look more like an overwhelmed, irritated woman today when I came home from work. But even though he's picked up most of my mom work this week, he still won't touch those darn dishes so guess he doesn't have the true in my shoes mom experience until he spends close to an hour after dinner up to his elbows in dirty dishes. Not sure he could have handled that at the end of the day today with the way he looked.

So my last question- it's not so easy being mommy, is it?

  1. My two boys go through so much laundry! They get food or something on their clothes at least three times a day :)
