I must first say, my husband is wonderful. I love him, we have a great relationship and I know he loves our son, but......
Are any of you dealing with a frustrated husband? He seems frustrated when the baby cries. Ummm... babies cry, what did you expect? He says he understands he cries when he's hungry or wet, etc... but hates it when he cries for no reason. I can hear him grumble under his breath when he's holding him while he's fussing. I know he would never ever harm him, that's not my concern. I just want him to realize that he's a baby and he's going to cry. Try holding him closer or talking to him sweetly, don't roll your eyes! There are times I come home and he is walking around with him in the baby carrier, all smiles and happy. Then I'll come home and he'll be red in the face, rolling his eyes because he can't quiet him.
I'm sure this beginning stage is difficult for every couple, but he just seems so unhappy. As if it's annoying to him that he can't do the hobbies he once filled his time with because he's got a crying baby. He is an elementary school teacher, so he is TOTALLY comfortable with children and loves them dearly. He's the guy at the kids birthday party that is hanging and playing with the kids while the adults conversate in the corner. I just don't get why he seems so surprised by OUR child. I also feel like because of this, he's taking away from the happiness I should be getting to have for this wonderful time in our lives. We'll never get this time back- it's our first baby!
Are any of you dealing with a similar situation? I'd love to hear about your relationship issues and if this is normal?
