    This is the reason I took over the parenting responsibilities. I wasn't thrilled to do it. But it was the only way for the kids to have consistent parenting. husband served as to the backup to whatever I said. Mom was the bottom line. Which meant I carried the full load.

    Considering the alternative.....It turned out well. There was less chaos in the house because the kids weren't subjected to his whims in parenting (which depended on his moods) and I had back up when I needed it, which was rare.

    Only downfall I've seen to it is that the kids have an active relationship with me, and basically none at all with their dad. But that's his fault, not mine.

    Vent all you need to, often it's what keeps us sane.

    I understand. Miss KT's father is referred to as Useless Boy around here. His uselessness far exceeded the simple parenting tasks, however. His continued uselessness is the main reason I divorced him.

    Hugs and strength to you.

    Is your avatar a pile of cotton candy...or a Jello brain?

    There must be something in the air, or it's the way the planets are aligning because this seems to be a common problem between my friends and my husband.

    My husband thinks I'm the wicked witch of the west if I stress because the bills due equal more than the money coming in...but it's okay for him to freak out about it. Just not me...the one who pays all the bills.

    My good friends husband hasn't worked a full week this year... refuses to do anything around the house while he's off because the children aren't doing anything so why should he?.... and even though he's not working, he wants to know why there is no play money for him.

    You aren't alone....vent all you want. Believe me, we understand and relate.

    OH HOW ADORABLE!!!!! A PIGGY CAKE!!!! (((((SNORT)))) - 2 hooves up! I love pigs....used to own a boar hog. William G. Davidson, Equire. Some day I shall write about Willie the Wino. I miss our hog. Everyone does. Your cake is very nice. Good job!!!!

    Just a thought.......before you get so far into boarhog world because I've been there, divorced Satan and moved on to greener pastures and much nicer man.....but have you considered going to Family counseling so that EVERYONE can air their greviances? If Hogman says "ME? Counseling? NO WAY I don't need it." Then May I suggest....YOU go alone. The reason I say this is two fold and I'm living proof in two scenarios....
    1st marriage - I asked, begged him to go - he said "I don't need it." he also didn't want me to go so I snuck and went. I kept going for 15 years. Wow did I learn a bundle. I'm almost right in the head. :tongue: Key word - almost. But....I do have a fantastic relationship with my DF (dear fiance)

    2nd relationship - I asked, didn't beg - but kept going on my own. At first he said "I don't need it." So I said 'Well I'm going anyway, but keep in mind - nothing is perfect. I just thought I'd learn how we could get along better, but if that's not of any interest to you? Stay home. I'm sure I'll learn something on my own about dealing with that too." Two weeks later? On his own he was dressed and ready to go. Three years running - he never missed an appointment - 2 nights a week - once for us - once for my son. Then he got to where he liked it because living with a difficult child is rough and you NEED a non-interested party to a.) blow off steam to and b.) have a professional tell you HOW to live with your own kid and be smarter & one step ahead to stop problems before they start. difficult child's don't come with an instruction manual. They need to be parented differently than any other chlid and you can use ALL the help you can get. Our divorce rate is EXTREMELY thinking ahead? Counseling wasn't such a bad thing after all. We used it for our date night -

    Just a thought so that you could sit in a room - and tell old boarhog - how you feel and then he could say how he feels and then a neutral party could come up with a solution for you both to work on all week....instead of you feeling bad and him doing nothing. Or you yelling at him and him still doing nothing...or you harboring resentment and expressing it inappropriately and him yelling back and the kids thinking NOW IS OUR CHANCE...let's act out. -----Just thinking out loud. Everyone has a side.

    Drat -----now I want pink frosting. Arrrrrrrgh.
