Well not fight but basically blew me off and said I should have pushed for him to go and he would have made it happen and that he didn't want to take the time off that early in the school year (a week after school started).

I told him in my email that I didn't want him to try and to take off now because it would just make me feel like e was doing it because I was whining about it not because he wanted to.

He is still going to the game. Money down the drain if you ask me since it is a 7 or 8 hr trip one way. Who cares if the tickets are free. Ugh whatever. i am going swimming with my boys.

So now he is texting me saying if I really want him to go he will make it happen. I wanted him to do that before without me asking . He told me that I just needed to tell him how I felt and what I really wanted. Why does he have to make things so difficult. Maybe I am the one who is making more out of this then it really is. I dunno.

Re: Daily Chat Aug 17th

Stacie-my husband always said men don't get subtlety (SP?) I have to tell him exactly what I want exactly WHEN I want or we get major miscommunication issues! Also where in the lonestar are you...I have a mini crib that I don't need..lol

We just bought a pack n play off of craigslist that will go in our room until we start using the nursery. Right now the baby's room is the room where I do my sewing and the dogs have their cages when we leave for the day so it is a mess and a work in progress! I'm getting the furniture out of layaway at the end of this month so we really have to start looking into getting that room cleaned up!

Laughing I live in Abilene but my parents live Ft Worth and Dh's in Houston.

I am done with him on the subject now. If he doesn't get that I truly want him there (and I have said I do want him there) then whatever. He can miss out on another great moment!

Re: Daily Chat Aug 17th

No nursery here. We still co-sleep with ds (who is almost 2) and only have one bedroom, well the second one is used for an office and there is no way not to use it as that. We will move in the next few months and will get another bdrm, so that there can actually be a kids room (yay!), but I doubt that either of my kids will sleep there for a while yet! ds is just so used to being with us and I am another one who just cannot fathom the notion of getting out of bed 6 times a night to nurse a nb. Really, I got to the point where I could nurse ds half asleep and almost feel human the next day--I would have been a zombie had I been having to go to another room and sit in a chair to nurse! DH has never loved cosleeping, but I told him it's the only way I'm functional. Besides ds literally would not sleep without the presence of me for a long time.

Of course all of this is with the caveat that I know all babes have their own little thing going. . .and some don't sleep as well in bed with others. And ds may decide he wants a big-boy bed when we have a room for him. I'll go with the flow. Not exactly sure how we'll make the arrangement to sleep with a nb and a toddler though. We have a King mattress on the floor so plenty safe, but ds kicks like crazy. . .will have to separate him from the baby obviously. Thinking about getting a snuggle nest for the baby too (to have in bed with us), just to protect the new one at first.

ack, no time for persies as I had an unexpected visit from the landlord and now ds is awake.

Re: Daily Chat Aug 17th

no nursery! we have a small apt and my babies sleep with me. i can't handle getting out of bed to nurse them during the night, lol.

sorry i haven't had a chance to read through this thread- i'm on my way out the door in a minute for a bit. hope everyone is well. afm, dd2s radian came today! i'm PRAYING this seat will help us smoosh three kids in the back of our forester. i'll need to get the baby the most compact seat i can find, too. possibly another one of these- right now it looks like i may be able to get another one in there rf. we have a true fit in there rf right now, and that sucker is huge, so it might work. the base of this looks much narrower than the truefit, so i think we may be able to get 3 across. oldest dd is 7.5 and already in a booster. i will literally cry if we have to get rid of our brand new car to fit the newbie in! lol!

No nursery yet, we usually co-sleep for the first year. We are planning to move soon so hoping to get a 4 bdrm and the kids will have their own room, dd will share with the new baby, or maybe ds2 will.

Re: Daily Chat Aug 17th

Stacie, once you two have calmed down I would tell him how much you want him to go again. I wouldn't bring up the football thing either, I think that would just make matters worse and get him upset. My dh usually doesn't go to any apt anymore. First one yes, second one, not so much, this time around I won't ask. If he wants to come, then I would be more then happy. If not then that's ok. So, I hope everything works out. As for a nursery no. The baby will sleep in our room so I can feed and not wake up our other sons. Once the baby starts sleeping through the night then he or she will go into or son's room. Oldest is moving upstairs so it will just be the two youngest across from us. My dh is an artist and did a Charlie Brown theme for our first son. That will stay until both youngest kids get tired of it. Which will be hard as he did such a good job and just the memories, though he can do something else. At least we have pics. Our oldest wants a hot wheel theme upstairs. LOL
