We just had our first child together this March. At two months I am back to work and working 12 hr shifts. He has tried to do his best to watch him at night when I am at work. I Feel bad b/c it just is not coming natural to him. I tell him to keep him to the rutine that I have him at when I am here...but he continues to "skip " giving the baby a bath and then the baby keeps him up until as late as 3 am...and he has to be up at 5:30 in the morning.
When I am here he just flakes out and it's like he forgets about the household needs. Like mom is here so I can veg out. I run all over the place trying to cook and bringing him his plate and drink and then I have to wait to eat b/c now that I have spent the past hour cooking and catching up on things b/c he is here now...the baby is hungry. When i ask him t o hold the baby he just sighs really heavy and makes me feel like he is being bothered.
I know that he tries, but he has a computer addiction that drives me insane sometimes. He has a bad habbit of leaving things all over the floor; like using the floor for storage space for his "stuff". I keep kicking things in the night when I have to get up with the baby. As if I thought it was never possible, he is even more lazy now than before the baby at times. When he does clean up something it's like he "had to" do it because I didn't so the world must be ending..lol
