Turdface Husband

by doodaddy on February 29, 2008

Remember when I couldn’t imagine being at home while my wife languished in a hospital room? Well, it turns out, neither could she, and boy, was she pissed off.

Three days "on" with Boobaby, very little sleep and (alas, the worst part!) having run out of coffee, I got testy on Working Mom’s first day home. Everybody and their mother (literally) wanted to come over, and my wife of course said "yes" to them all. So I got to play host, too, on top of it all.

Most of my whining was internal, but not all of it. Who the hell complains to his wife the day she gets home from surgery?

I do, apparently. Not feeling really good about my chances for the husband hall of fame this year.

I have only just begun reading your blog, but I would like to add one thing:

Speaking as a mom of three whose youngest (2.5) has slept through the night only ONCE in her life, and not being able to function without coffee, a lack of sleep and caffeine is a horrible combination.

Keep the complaints inside, play host, and don’t be too hard on yourself . . .

I know, huh? I wanted to find a coffee delivery service. At that point I would have paid all the cash I had to get someone to bring me coffee at 3 a.m.!

Thanks for sayin’ hi!

There’s nothing worse than both of you being stressed out and tired. Blog it out – it’s okay to feel frustrated.

Don’t be too hard on yourself. You guys both have had a rough time and everyone is stressed.

For some reason this reminds me of a sandwich I had just after a major knee surgery 3 years ago. Mr. Bum was definitely having a hard time adjusting to caring for his 1 year old daughter, his wife who was unable to walk, and all of his original responsibilites. One evening while fixing dinner the stress got to him and I can’t quite remember but I think it was a roast sandwich and it was cold. I asked if he would mind heating it. The response I got was a very irritated, “Just eat it!”

Yes, it hurt, but I got over it.
