I'm trying to be supportive but

Yes I know our daughter got up at 4am because I got out of bed to deal with her and her sopping wet 5lb diaper that leaked all over her jammies and her bed. Which is why she came into bed with us because I was not going to start with stripping and remaking beds. Yes I know our daughter had trouble going back to sleep once she was tucked in between us because I was the person she was rolling on top of, yes I know you were the recipient of a few kicks here and there.

Yes I know that you don't do well on interupted sleep which is why I normally don't grudge you that extra 15 minutes each morning and when I do I suck it up reminding myself that you have to go out to a job and support us every day. Yes I know you can be a big grumpy bear when you think you've lost out on sleep but verbally attacking your daughter for just doing what comes naturally to her (you know, kind of like how being able to fall asleep quickly and being able to sleep all day if you have the option comes naturally to you?) is not OK. Then grumbling about how You don't have the option of a nap in the middle of the day with the unspoken phrase (like you do) tacked on to your condescending tone is not going to endear you to me. Especially since you will be taking off for the whole weekend with your buddies.

Did you know that you were actually sleeping through most of the 3 hours she was in bed with us? Did you know that she was actually sleeping for most of the 3 hours she was in bed with us? Did you stop to think that you have the option, and frequently take it (Like every day but Sunday) of lying in bed for a few extra minutes while I get up and visit the bathroom with her, give her breakfast, pour her milk and start the coffee and breakfast for us? Did you know that I don't get time off from my job? Did you know that I'm on call 24/7? Did you know that I am responsible for keeping up with her endless supply of energy and often don't nap with her in the middle of the day anymore? Did you know that you're coming off as a complete asshole dickweed douche bag?

I was just wondering

I wish I had known about this blog when I was going through what you are now. I didn't, I held it in, I divorced him later.
