I went to NYC this past weekend for a baby shower. Matt was home for the weekend with the kids.
When he mentioned that to someone at work a few days before I left, they were stunned — he’d have all four kids all by himself all weekend?!?!?
It made me mad.
I don’t think anyone is surprised that I take care of the children by myself when Matt has to go on a business trip. It annoys me that it’s shocking that he would do the same thing when I go out of town.
These children are absolutely equally mine and his. Why couldn’t he care for them on his own? Why wouldn’t he be able to do that?
