What would you like to change about...
Brilliant post pauline!!!!!!!!
I would like Gillan to stop having the twisted view that caring for OUR children is my JOB!!!!!!!! (he's got that idea from his mum)!
For him to get a job that pays fairly well and makes him happy
and if possible a mute switch fitted on him for when he flies off on a rant...
haha fab post Pauline
I dont want to change much really I would just like Sam to cook more and to put his clothes in the laundry baskets and not leave them gathering in a pile at the side of his bed LOL
lol Laura at your 2nd point!
I'd just want to see him less grumpy - or at least to not take it out on me when he is
There seems to be a theme developing here.
I would like mine to understand that being a parent is full-time, not just when he feels like it; that we are jointly responsible for them, not just, again, when he gets his 'dad' hat on; that is is actually hard work trying to keep the house tidy with three children doing their utmost to make it messy, whilst still managing to feed, clothe, cuddle and play with said children; that there are only 24 hours in the day and I'd like to be able to sleep for some of them; that I am a person not just a mummy and a housewife - if it was stimulating bringing up children and hoovering all day he really would want to do more of it.
Having a bad day.
to be more consistent.
He either does loads of tiding up and hoovers - when I am tring to have a lie down so I will notice it more. Or does sod all.
To understand my nutty illness alittle more. He thinks I use my Borderline Personaility Disorder as an excuse for my sometimes strange, impatient and impulsive behavoiur. Weirdly all three are symtoms. Funny that.
i would like it if Shawn was more patient with Ben and if we could agree on how to discipline him.. (having grown up in South Africa going to a military school - he tends to a be a tad hard on little man).
otherwise i can't complain - he does all the cooking and will clean when nagged!
I would like Gareth to realise that with a toddler, working full time as a teacher and now with a baby I have very little free time to do things like housework and so tend to do only what is needed!!
It would also be nice if he realised that I am always skint as I run the house, he seems to forget this and will happily spend money on non-essentials when all my money goes on essentials!! The kids are my first priority, not DVD's, IPods or trains!!!!!!
i know what you mean!! Shawn loves car magazines - and we often end up with FOUR a month, each of them costing over 4 quid each.. Have managed to get him off the Coke (Coca Cola, not the other stuff hehe).. but every time we manage to scrape together money to go out for a meal (rare) he has to have at least two drinks and then at least one coffee..
he has also started spending a fair amount of money on itunes.. grr..
i don't believe in paying for music when you can listen to it on the radio or put music channels on sky.. itunes charge 79pence for a single, but somehow we managed to rack up a bill of 30 quid last month! he also tends to buy very heavy metal music, which i wouldn't say was my favourite..
AND our phone bill has been over 50 quid for two months in a row (he's the only one who uses the phone).. fair enough, his family are in South Africa, but this month it was 65 quid, and he uses the 2p a minute numbers..
