A couple TWs. The first is that maternity leave should start two weeks before your due date (also everyone should get paid maternity leave). The second are the HR people at DHs work who just told him that he's not supposed to split up his paternity leave. I know we are super lucky in that he gets 4 weeks. We planned for him to take 2 weeks at the beginning and 2 weeks after I go back to work. He already talked to his manager about this and she didn't have a problem with it. He's meeting with her tomorrow so hopefully he can get permission re-approved.
@HGRich, our husbands sound like they could be related! When I have other plans to get things done or our house is a wreck etc that's when he chooses to have people over and/or start another big messy project. It frustrates me SO bad and he thinks it's no big deal and I just don't like company ever. Um no, I am fine with company but when I have to do ALL the cooking and cleaning and you just get to hang out and enjoy, yes I have an issue with it! Especially when it's last minute like he is very notorious for doing to me.
Hmm, lunch - order pizza! Or just do an easy crock pot soup, some bread and if you really feel ambitious grab something at the store for dessert (or make something if you like to do that) and call it good. It will be great soup weather this weekend, and soups make a lot and are usually pretty fast. I have a good taco one or potato if you need a fast easy recipe!
SnarkasaurusRex said:::snip::Every chance she gets she complains to me that I'm "withholding her grandchildren" from her. She makes comments all the time about how she has to do stuff with DS now because soon she won't get to anymore. And the other day, when we were on the way to my sprinkle, she basically told me that I was an incompetent mother who wouldn't be able to handle taking care of two kids by myself while DH travels for work. I can handle people being unsupportive, but she's unsupportive for the sole reason that she doesn't get what SHE wants, and that selfishness is driving me insane. My dad and DH's family get it and they're supportive of us. They've known that it's been our goal for a long time. It's JUST my mom that's acting like this. I've been giving her radio silence since my sprinkle because I just don't even want to deal with her at all right now.::snip::
