Top Ten Things my husband does that annoy me

We all have things about our significant others that bug use. I've decided to list my top ten... If Drew were to make a similar list about me, it would probably be his top 100:

1. Make way too much noise when the baby is sleeping- You would think he would learn, but no... whenever she is sleeping he makes a TON of noise. Now, before you lecture me about how she should have noise around the house when she's sleeping, let me clarify. First off, she doesn't have a door on her room. Which means there is no sound barrier when things are really loud. Second off, Drew is loud. Like not just the normal household noises. I mean the screaming because the Bruins just scored a goal or slamming things around just because. He's loud enough that when I'm upstairs sleeping it jerks me out of my sleep. Now just imagine being a tiny baby and hearing those noises. Oh yeah, without a bedroom door. 


2. Offer the baby things he can't give her right away- This too falls under the "you think he would learn" category. Alas, he doesn't get why asking her if she wants something to eat and THEN cooking it, doesn't quite work for her since she doesn't get the whole delayed gratification concept. Instead he offers and then she freaks out because he doesn't hand it over.  

3. Ask me twenty times "what's wrong". If I don't tell you the first time, it's for one of three reasons 1) There's nothing wrong 2) I don't feel like talking to you or 3)You're what's wrong and I don't want to get into a fight with you about it. Either way, I clearly don't want to tell you... so leave me alone!     

                              

                                                                                                       
4. He makes me finish a fight at that moment. I'm the type that needs to walk away from an argument to cool down and get my thoughts together. Drew sees that as trying to ignore the issue and hope it goes away. So when I tell him I need a minute and try to walk away... he follows me. Drives.Me.Bonkers

5. He somehow manages to pretend to sleep through Fynn's middle of the night wake ups. Now, I don't know how much of this is legit sleeping through it, and how much is that he just doesn't want to get up with her. Regardless, it's frustrating to be the one who usually gets up with her. 

6. Scrutinizes our bank account. I get it, I get it, he does all the bill paying and banking, so he needs to pay attention to this stuff. But it's rather frustrating to get asked "so what did you buy at Target for $57 last week?". It also makes it REALLY hard to surprise him with gifts as he always knows how much I spent at different places. To get around this I'll often get cash back at some place to make it look like I spent more there and then buy his actual gifts with cash so he has no idea what he's getting. Wow... that sounds pathetic 

7. Judges me when I'm lazy. I'm lazy, and I'm okay with that. But there are time when I just want to laze on the couch and watch tv or read a book without feeling guilty. But the look he gives me when he gets home on such days? So not worth it

8. Hogs the laptop. So what if I've got the iPad? Some things (like writing blog posts) are a billion times easier to do with a full keyboard than on the iPad... buy me a keyboard for the iPad (hint, hint, nudge, nudge) and I'll stop wanting it so much. 

9. Whines when he can't find his clothes. I wash, fold, and put away all the clothes in this household... so sue me if I can't always remember where a particular shirt of yours is at a given moment. Did you put it in the laundry basket? Have I done laundry since then? Did you check the dryer? Honestly, your guess about where it could be is as good as mine. 

10. Leaves the shower head up high so when I turn the shower on water sprays all over the back wall of the shower and onto the floor. This one was actually the inspiration for this post, as it drives me nuts that he does this. Doesn't he realize what a mess this makes?!?

Okay, all complaining aside, I love my husband and think he's an amazing guy and a wonderful father... now if he would just stop doing all the things that bug me, he would be perfect.

  2. Ha! My husband is the same with #1. He is soooo loud and I can't stand it! He wakes up before me every morning and he almost always wakes me up because he is so loud. I yell at him all of the time for it. He also leaves lights on. Drives me crazy!

  4. You're a rather self centered idiot aren't you? Also, learn to proof read your blog posts. Spelling issues abound.
    The only legitimate gripe you have is the baby noise issue. Other than that, think about all your husband goes through outside the home. I am a retired stay at home dad, so I know the challenges, but you need to remember empathy and sympathy for your spouse.

  6. I agree with Mack on the editing before posting. However, aimed at Mack, I think it likely that these complaints are shared by many (I for one have experienced problems with most of these). The post is probably more of a vent and affirmation that she's not alone than anything else, and it does NOT mean that she has no empathy/sympathy for her spouse. It gets frustrating when one does not receive that empathy/sympathy in return, however, and while we deal with it for the most part, occasionally we tend to snap and need to vent. Seriously, calm down.
