Maybe it's just us, but when something is wrong with our baby my husband and I bicker with each other like nobodies business.
When I say bicker, I mean we're short with one another, we're snippy and we're frustrated.
Case in point, when Roo was super duper young her doctor detected a "blip" with her heart and suggested we get her to see a cardiologist as soon as possible. The entire time we waited for that appointment, we snapped at each other over everything.
As soon as we found out she was okay, we were fine, like nothing had happened.
Tonight, Roo walked into a door... hard. So hard that her nugget swelled up instantly, turned a nasty shade of eggplant and bled. Then she got soap in her eyes (during her bath) and proceeded to scream like a banshee.
Then came the bitching.
My husband and I, not our daughter (of course).
As soon as Roo calms down, we calm down.
Is this normal?
Do all parents freak out over their kids and take it out on their spouses?
We're not intentionally mean or say things that you can never take back, but the simplest request can turn into something of ridiculous sized proportions.
And as soon as the dust has settled, it's fine!
Kids nowadays sure will drive you, and your husband, crazy!
P.S. To note, Roo is fine. She happily has a Spongebob band-aid over her boo-boo and has soap-free eyes.
