I tried to explain to my husband this past weekend that I wasn't sad, but I wanted to cry. The more I tried to explain it, the more horrified he looked. You're not alone, as you can see from all of the many other responses!
Feeling very slighted today. My husband and I are part of a Renfaire group. We've only been involved for two seasons so far. Last year, he had to work and couldn't participate. The first year, he was a villager and basically just wandered around the grounds playing rat puck, which is part of setting the scene and whatnot. I have been considerably more involved: I worked the first weekend last year in the ticket booth, I've walked in the parades, handed out flyers, manned the table at the local convention, I helped with the bake sale the first year and ran the entire bake sale the second year, I've helped make costumes, run errands, and also acted as a villager. Guess which one of us was remembered when the woman who heads everything up was listing who all helped last year? Yup, just my husband. I know it's selfish to get upset at this - it's all volunteer work, and if you're volunteering for praise and thanks, you're doing it wrong. Just stings feeling like I do so much and get completely forgotten.

*disclosure- this is probably going to sound lame and whiney* I know that not everyone has the luxury of being able to take 12 weeks off for maternity leave but I am lucky in that my employer does offer it even though they don't have to. However, my OB has to authorize the 12 weeks in order for me to be able to take it! Well I just got my paperwork back from the doctor and she authorized me to be of work for 6 weeks! Ugh I should have checked it before I left the office to see if I could get her to extend it! I hope she can change it for me next time because 6 weeks doesn't seem like nearly enough time with my baby!
