Tell me I'm not married to the only man who willingly agrees to do whatever to make his kid happy? Even if it's not a good plan?
So . . . DSS (who is 10) is here for 4-5 weeks. DH has one of those weeks off. I am expected (well, I sort of agreed) to watch DSS while DH is at work. DH works 70+ hours a week. Me being pregnant, I have at least 3 doctors appointments this month (and can't bring DSS).
I thought DH should take the kid to camp (DH is in the army and there's a camp on post) but DSS told DH he doesn't really want to, but didn't elaborate, and DH isn't making him, and now DH is all cranky that I want the kid to go to camp. (As he said, "If I'd known you were going to force camp on him I wouldn't have asked him to stay the whole month." Oh PUH-LEASE) First of all, I think it's super important to find out WHY DSS doesn't like camp - DH hasn't done that and doesn't seem to understand the importance of it. DH also suggested I take DSS to DH's work on those days - except my doctors are 1-5 blocks away and DH works way far away (well it's close but in NY traffic would take forever. and DH works 12+ hour days so DSS can't be w/ him all day).
I'm sure I've left out details, but I'm so annoyed. (DH is currently ignoring me because I'm so evil and I want his kid to go to camp for 4 whole days and I won't drop it.)
