My husband the Idiot (rant)

Just so that everyone is clear, I knew DH was posting under my name. I told him as long as he identified himself I didn't care. I've been passed out on the couch about 80% of the day today. He decided after the responses to create his own account.

Now, I'm going back to my box of kleenex.

Thank you for agreeing with me.

That was awesome! I needed a good cackle tonight. Thanks for helping me out.

Ahhh Wayne. I appreciate your viewpoints and everything you're doing for Trish this week. And she has spoken up about how awesome a father you've been since the baby was born - very cool. So I'm trying to figure out why you rub me so wrong on this issue. Maybe it's because you describe your points as exeedingly simple or that you see so many obvious points that you need to address - I don't know.

Maybe the problem is you've addressed this issue of Puela's as her problem - kinda like blaming the victim in my opinion, when really the problem is his. Just think what would've happened if the husband said, "Oh Hon, I'm sorry. I got around the guys and we were being stupid. It's not okay to say bitch, unless you're at Westminster, and unless our son is showing Bill Cosby's cocker spaniel, I don't want him to think that it is." Situation over.

Why do men sometimes hang on so tight when they are wrong? Not only PP's husband, but you as well Wayne, for defending him.

I laugh at all kinds of inappropriate things - The Hangover, for instance, what wasn't inappropriate with the baby in that movie, yet I was rolling. However, parenting is cooperation. If one parent was obviously upset at what was happening, then other parent, don't be a jerk. Wives are not the only ones who can be caught up in being right. Husbands do it too, and occassionally they must be big enough to say they screwed up and apologize.

Okay, I might have laughed harder than I ever laughed before. But while they didn't have Carlos safely buckled in, at least they weren't teaching him to say bitch! :D

That's an easy one: Because we think we're right. Remember when I said earlier... "I may take some flack on this site for saying it, but it's my MALE opinion that when a woman can't convince somebody of something, it is almost unfathomable to them that there is an alternative interpretation of the facts."

However, parenting is cooperation. If one parent was obviously upset at what was happening, then other parent, don't be a jerk. Wives are not the only ones who can be caught up in being right. Husbands do it too, and occassionally they must be big enough to say they screwed up and apologize.

I can't agree more. I'm really not trying to defend him except that I agree with him that she was over reacting. I don't agree with teaching the kid the word but I do understand his reaction. I'd be in hot water with Trish if I did that with our son as well, but nobody would end up at the library, and I would heed to my partner's wishes.

Not just a dad...a SOFTWARE ENGINEER! I guess the door was opened when Mr. Stinky Feet became a regular blogger. Really Trish's Husband, this is your first kid, he is a newborn, so you really have no idea of what is to come, really you don't. You can have all the nieces and nephews and babysit a 1000 kids but until you have your own and experience it first hand, you have no idea.

As for the issue at hand, it is unacceptable to teach your kids that kind of language. Sure, it may be somewhat funny at home but get him out in the real world, at daycare maybe, that word comes out and you will be guaranteed a call! Her son is young now so if it isn't continually brought up, he will forget it but he is close the age where it will be harder for him to forget.

Whew, glad I didn't post about my DH yesterday.
Or, maybe I should have. :?:
No, I'm glad I didn't. It might not have been a 'just between me and my MOM friends' rant.
Dang, and it was a good one too.
I'm so far behind I think I'm first.
