Must be nice

It Must Be Nice - Husband pt. 1

*A collection of random thoughts. (Note to reader: I do love my husband, and I love doing things for him. Just had to get this off my chest.) There may be more to come. Feel free to add your own in the comments.*

  • It must be nice to sleep in on the weekends.
  • It must be nice to cook dinner and receive all the thanks and praise, and then let someone else worry about cleaning up the mess.
  • It must be nice to eat your dinner while it’s warm, and when you’re finished go do whatever you need to because someone else is feeding the baby while their food gets cold.
  • It must be nice to have a clean house, and you didn’t lift a finger.
  • It must be nice to get a shower WHENEVER you want it.
  • It must be nice to leave the house without dragging a kid with you everywhere you go.
  • It must be nice having someone there to bath the baby and put him to bed, so you can play on the computer.

It must be nice to go coach basketball, which you love, in Indiana for the weekend while your sick wife stays home to cope with the two-year-old and the dog! :-)

I love mine, too, but it is necessary to vent once in a while.

This is making me too crabby. If I start adding to the list, or venting about why items should not be on the list, I will end up biting my husband's head off as soon as he comes through the door tonight, and he'll be all, "Huh? What's going on?"

I can't complain too much. Jim is really good about a lot of things- he usually cleans up after dinner, when we go anywhere together with Addy, he usually watches her more than I do, and he does pick up the toys quite often. That said, I will add that I do get very tired of lugging her with me everywhere I go during the day. I envy the freedom to get in the car without a baby on your hip and two different bags over your shoulder.
But sometimes I also feel bad for Jim. I wonder if he's sitting at work thinking, "It must be nice to get to take a nap or get a snack whenever you want, or stay in your pajamas all day." Not that that ever happens...

I'm thinking maybe I sent the wrong meaning with this. Maybe I was being too critical of my husband when I sent it. Yes, he does take advantage of some of the things I do. But there are a lot of things I don't do for him that I probably should. Anyway, I think all relationships are like this sometimes. We give and take. Sometimes we take too much, but then other times we're the primary givers.
