Its the simple things that add up and get so annoying over time. I feel like im constantly annoyed with my husband for one reason or another. Its always something. Today he decided he wanted to eat iceypolls and when i go to the kitchen there are the scissors he used to cut of the top and there is the plastic tip of the iceypoll and with a little bit of melted purple grape flavoured iceypoll on the counter. arghh. then i ask him to change our daughters poo nappy and he does do it. but then i pick her up to play with her and i still smell poo on her? lol. so i check her nappy to make sure she hasnt pooed again, and she hasnt, he just didnt wipe thourougly enough. argh. just little things like this drive me insane and there is something new everyday to be annoyed at! And when i get annoyed, i nag and then hate myself for it :(
Yesturday one of the annoying things was when i asked him to feed our 9month old some baby food while i did the laundry, all i could hear is him complaning about how messy she's getting and then giving up after only a quater of the food was eatten coz it was too messy and he couldnt handle it so i had to finish the job.
He's always sorry when i bring these things up, and swears he'll change, but he never does :/
Im sure this is not a phenomenom that only occurs in my household so, how do you cope with your partner's inability to clean up after themselves, and help out "properly" with the kids and house chores?
