It's Going to Hell

Post by Fainn » Wed Oct 18, 2017 5:36 pm

So, I pretty much do ALL the housework, walk her dog each time. Then her brother says she'll need more help now that a baby's here. What the hell does she do exactly that she needs help with?
Now she says she's going to take the baby and stay with her cousin a few days. Doesn't ask if its okay or anything. What kind of mother would keep the father from a newborn? Have no idea what to do.

You need to talk to your Wife and find out what's going on. Be loving and life-giving.

More help? This is a truism. We give of ourselves to give the Next-Step-of-Us, our Children, a better world and life than we have.

Fight against all odds for Your Child and Your Wife.

Never give up.
Rgrds,
Joe

A hard thing someone told me a few months back is "Assume the best until you verify." For me that's a tough thing to do because A: My mind wants to immediately go to the worst (in the particular situation the advice was given for) and B: To "verify" means I have to man up and talk it out with the person/s that the problem is with which is never fun, but ultimately necessary and even mandated by God. Another thing that Holy Spirit has added to that for me is to remind me that when I go to verify, I should go with expectations of healing and unity. If I am to be honest, in my sin, there have been times where I am actually hoping the person was trying to mean just so I can fool myself into justifying my anger.

“Then the lion said — but I don’t know if it spoke — You will have to let me undress you. I was afraid of his claws, I can tell you, but I was pretty nearly desperate now. So I just lay flat down on my back to let him do it.

“The very first tear he made was so deep that I thought it had gone right into my heart. And when he began pulling the skin off, it hurt worse than anything I’ve ever felt. The only thing that made me able to bear it was jut the pleasure of feeling the stuff peel off. You know — if you’ve ever picked the scab of a sore place. It hurts like billy-oh but it is such fun to see it coming away.”

“I know exactly what you mean,” said Edmund.

“Well, he peeled the beastly stuff right off – just as I thought I’d done it myself the other three times, only they hadn’t hurt – and there it was lying on the grass, only ever so much thicker, and darker, and more knobbly-looking than the others had been. And there was I smooth and soft as a peeled switch and smaller than I had been. Then he caught hold of me – I didn’t like that much for I was very tender underneath now that I’d no skin on — and threw me into the water. It smarted like anything but only for a moment. After that it became perfectly delicious and as soon as I started swimming and splashing I found that all the pain had gone from my arm. And then I saw why. I’d turned into a boy again. . . .”

I fought. She's staying here with the baby. I am under the impression she doesn't think men can handle it. Nevermind that I babysat my niecce for 2 years or the fact I do all the cooking, cleaning, and laundry. I'm just being taken for granted.

Seems like she's looking out for you man. New babies who don't sleep through the night can be a strain on the family. Seriously. A baby who sleeps through the night is worth his weight in gold. This whole baby deal is going to take some getting used to. By all of you.

Praying.

Welcome to my world, in part. I mean, I do everything save that which I teach the kids to do. And it's assumed that I know how or can figure out how to do anything.

I hope that's the biggest problem you have. If so, you got it made. I've handled that, and much worse,for thirty years now. I imagine you can, too.

Yep. Actually it's not that uncommon for either a close relative or friend to come stay with a new mother, or a new mother to stay with a close relative or friend for a day or so. Look at the bright side, when my oldest was born my mother in law came over.

Not to engage in one upmanship, but so did mine. From Tokyo. For a month.

You'll be ok, Fainn. :D
