Nah, I'll stick with my dh who doesn't know how to schedule for shit, but isn't insufferably sanctimonious . You are doing what plenty of parents do--myself included. Why the need for the self-congratulation and poke at others? [ Reply | More ]

Among my friends, combined with handling the kids all weekend plus handling their activities plus finding and scheduling the babysitters? Yes, it does. [ Reply | More ]

This is actually one of the easier aspects of parenting - calling a babysitter. Not to denigrate your efforts, but this really isn't something to write home about. [ Reply | More ]

A man who "thinks like you do" is supposed to speak to a therapist. You think you're a special snowflake, but really you're just a regular guy who is engaged with parenting and resents his partner for not recognising that he is a god. [ Reply | More ]

I think this is it. You say you feel like "a chump." Because you're co-parenting?! Get over yourself. Either grow a spine and tell your wife you don't want any parenting responsibilities, or get over yourself and enjoy being a dad. You're the worst of both worlds, not the best. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I had leftover takeout in the fridge that I've been looking forward to all day. DH came home while I was putting kids to sleep and I walk out of their room to find him sitting on the couch eating it. And now he won't go to whole foods to get me a replacement dinner. (He usually eats dinner at work - big law - so I didn't think I had to feed him tonight.) 16 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] What is considered "lack of sleep"? I look really old and tired lately. It usually takes me an hour to fall asleep. I went to bed at 11pm last night, probably fell asleep close to midnight and woke-up around 6:45am. I find too that I wake-up at least once a night, but sometimes I don't remember it. So to get a good nights rest where I don't look or feel tired, I should go to bed around 9:30pm? This is so hard! 12 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Main thing is to eliminate the wasted time tossing and turning. Eliminate caffeine after 12:00, exercise hard every day, sun on face in am, regular schedule, no screens in bedroom. Quality sleep beats 9:30 bedtime and insomnia. [ Reply | More ]
