A hard-working mother and wife had to exchange home duties with her husband for a couple of days to teach him a lesson.
A hardworking mother of two has taken to the streets of Reddit to share the dramatic story behind how she tried to make her husband respect her efforts in the home.
The mother of two children— a 12-year-old son and a 13-month-old baby, explained her daily schedule and how her husband dismisses her efforts.
According to her, before the COVID-19 pandemic, she was on a crazy schedule. It included her part-time work, part-time school, and taking care of the house and her children.
Her husband returned with a bad mood and yelled at her, accusing her of doing nothing all day except sleep, eating and getting fat.
But since the pandemic started, she became a stay at home mother schooling from home. And with school back in session, she explained that she helps her older son with his E-learning.
She went further and explained how she manages the household, takes care of chores, and the schooling for her son and herself by following a strict daily schedule she designed.
According to her, she had a severe migraine that refused to go away in the previous week, she decided to take a nap at 3 pm after she put the baby to bed, and her son was out of school.
Her husband returned with a bad mood and yelled at her, accusing her of doing nothing all day except sleep, eating and getting fat. Even though she tried to explain that she had a migraine, he countered her.
Then her husband took a few days off work, and she seized the opportunity to make temporary work arrangements with a friend for a few days, leaving behind her daily schedule to guide him.
She said he called twenty times the first day and ten times the second day, complaining that he couldn't handle their son's schoolwork, and caring for the baby.
On the third day, she said her husband showed up at her friend's place with the kids, and she was just lucky her friend didn't mind.
Arriving home with the kids, she met him sleeping and let him be. Instead, she went ahead to clean up the house, mow the grass, and make dinner, and get her children ready for bed.
Her husband accused her, saying everything she did was to make him look like a terrible parent, and she, in turn, countered him saying she did it to teach him a lesson.
That because he doesn’t see her working doesn’t mean she sits at home idle all day. What are your thoughts on the issue?
