“Shhhhh daddy is asleep!” A well known phrase in my house! How is it that’s the adult version of the male species is incapable of staying awake for an entire day.
I spend all day, every day looking after two children … (3 including their dad when he gets in from work) making sure they’re clean, fed, off to school & after school clubs on time, kept happy and amused, I play referee to keep the sibling rivalry under control …I also have to keep the house tidy, wash the clothes etc, cook everyone’s meals …. tidy up after everyone …. a rare moment I find to sit and have an undisturbed cup of tea.
He on the other hand, granted he does go off to work everyday, (although I moan he could be a lot worse) ……but anyway, that’s about as tiring as it gets. Once his working day is over ….. he strolls in, tea is cooked for him, his clothes are all washed and ready , and he spends the rest of the evening winding down from his “busy day” …. this usually consists of a few hours undisturbed kip on the sofa!!!! Oblivious to the chaos around him.
