I love my husband very much, but on sunday he broke his foot. He has been home all week, and everything was going fine until today. He woke up at noon (cause I am that nice), he has been up a total of 15 minutes, and has spent the whole time yelling about the most ridiculious stuff. Ie because I do not know his work cell phone number by heart (it was programed into the home phones and my cell phone). Because I offered him 4 pillows for the couch when he only needs 2 pillows. I think I might need to put him out of his misery like a horse today.. :0) Men can be such babies... thanks for letting me vent!

Ahh Amanda, good thread for bring a smile to my dial lol. My 'nice' response is to make up a nursy uniform & give him a sponge bath...my married response is to take off all day & leave him with the kids, or but my real response is to tell him to shut up & dy quietly, & pop in your ipod turn it up loud everytime you go near him while pointing to the head phones & mouthing I can't hear you??

My husband has had two knee surgeries and is soon going to be getting another...I feel your PAIN. Not only is it hard enough to please the kids, keep up the house and try to eat one meal a day but you have to take care of the so called Man of the house... It's awful! :) I would take one of those pillows and hold it over his face for awhile. LOL! At least you know one person understands.

Well we had a great weekend at his parents, and now that hes figured out hopping on one foot is better then the crutches, he sure has cheered up!!

A sick husband is the worst!!!!! They are the biggest babies. Just grin and bear it. The next time you are sick "Milk it for everything its worth" :)

You must have some kind of playgroup to go to. If not, gather your moms for some sort of outing today, tomorrow and the next day. He has one good foot right? He can hop to the kitchen, bathroom, etc. etc. Soon he will be appreciating you being there instead of biting at you.

Wow. Ouch. I don't think I wanna know where that came from. This has been a quite lighthearted and fun thread and that was like a glass of ice water in the face. Please don't have things like that on Circle of Moms. Discuss that in private messages. The rest of us didn't need to read that.
Thanks

He's probably feeling miserable because he feels like he's not contributing by working and guess what...you are the convenient person for him to take it out on! I like the idea of the Tylenol PM in a drink...! Women don't have any problems working in a "mans" world, but let's reverse the situation and bring men into a woman's world for a week and see how that goes! Not bashing all men...but you know who you are!! :-) Have a great day!

Remember a woman has a cold a man has the flu, its hard but just try to indulge hime while getting on with things, he doesnt need to know wat ur thinking , lol xx

LOL... I am not laughing at this because you are frustrated, you have every right to be frustrated. I am laughing because there are two types of men. 1-big babies and 2-too prideful to let anyone help...
My advice to you would be to dress up in a maids outfit and ask him how you can serve him. LOL~~~ No, seriously.. let him know that you are glad he is home getting the time to recoup he needs, but at the same time let him know you have a routine you do yourself. (This sometimes will set in and let the hubby's know what we actually do while they are at work) If he's going to act like a big baby (because some men are baby attitude driven with pain) tell him what you do when your child acts out as such :)
Or to even simplify it all, tell him to go to his room, give him a remote... at least then you can shut the door right?

Hang in there girl.. it's just for a time..

ROFL! How hilarious. Men are such huge babies. They like to think of themselves as being superheroes and it kills them to be sick or injured. It kind of smashes their tender ego. When my husband does that, I just treat him SUPER sweet and nice and wait on him and totally ignore what a jerk he's being. Then at some point he starts to feel guilty for being so snippy and he starts being nicer. I feel for you.

Men are babies when they are sick. He's probably just feeling a little helpless and frustrated right now. Take it with a grain of salt and pray for the day he goes back to work.

Wow. This is the very reason that when my friends get married, I give the wife a MARBLE ROLLING PIN as a wedding gift!

Im debating on the pillows or the skillet LOL! Though reading theses responces to him has made him put a smile on his face, he fully agrees with the woman who says I should met his manly needs. Bawhaha...

Boy do I know what you mean! My hubby has had several things happen over the last few years. Things that we go through, of course, are nothing to them. I'd like to see them push a baby out!



Anyway, Just remember that this too shall pass and they will go back to work.... hopefully sooner than later! I love my hubby, but am so glad at times when he goes to work! :)



Have a great one! I sure hope your day goes better!

I dont do anything for mine when he's hurt or sick. he doesnt baby me or anything. So why should i? He expects me to do everything for him. I guess i'm not such a nice wife lol

[deleted account]

He is feeling discouraged because men do not like to be weak or missing work. He needs to know that you still think he is the best. Pour it on thick- they can never get enough, ask what movie you can rent for him, make his favorite meal... tell him you know he'll be better in no time- couse' he is just that kinda guy. Just encourage, encourage, encourage. Whatever you do, dont point out faults, failors, or dissapointments. put on your happy face and have fun playing nurse- you will find that you will both be blessed! Also it is his foot that is broken- make sure you are meeting his manly needs as well. You will have a happy husband who knows he has the best wife in the world before you know it!

SKILLET!! Ohhhh better idea - bar of soap wrapped in a towel. Every time he opens his mouth to snivel - bop him on the head, it hurts and no bruises!!

lmao .. the flu?? heck I can't stand up straight with my monthly cramps - he figures it happens so regularly I should be used to it and doesn't help much. he was more help when the entire family had the flu though... lol I need more advil

Just play the movie Misery for him. It'll show him that he could be worse off. And personally, if all he's going to do is gripe, stop doing stuff for him. His foot is broken, but his hands aren't. He can use his crutches to do what he needs to do. If a mother can care for a child with the flu and the like, he can care for himself.

When it's time for his medicine slip in some Tylenol PM and tell him its the regular stuff. It will knock him out, you can get on with your day peacefully, and he can get some much needed rest that it sounds like he needs since he's being such a grump! Hee hee. Just a thought....Nik

visions that go through my head. Maybe you should rent that tonight, he might get the hint... wish I could think of a funny movie where a woman leaves a crippled guy in the tub for being a dickhead....

He's injured and not dying. I ignore mine when he's sick. Offer him pain meds every 3 hours instead? LOL.
