Why does daddy have so much time on his hands?

Now this isn’t a criticism,  so Harvey if you read this one.. Pipe down hun 😂

This statement is more of an observation if anything. I have met many mothers,  young or old,  1 child or 5 children, employed or stay at home.   The expectations of a mother,  are the same and high they are. Mummy does almost everything.

A day for me consists of waking up to children. I slide my mum pants firmly over my pancake arse,  for the duration of the day (accept when I get a chance to pee, which FYI is no where near enough).  Everything I do,  revolves around the children,  which of course is perfectly acceptable and is the life I chose.

BUT HE CHOSE IT TOO.

I just look at dad’s, whilst still firmly in my mum pants and I get mad… And maybe an incy bit jealous.

MATE CAN WE SWAP.

Now lets use Harvey as an example (again babe, pipe down.  Love you).  He wakes up before we do usually around 4am (sucks to be him,  but at least he gets to sleep all night) to go to work. And leaves all worries about the children safely in my hands.  He works all day,  bloody hard BTW (see Harv,  that was a nice comment).  Then he usually comes home to a lovely cooked meal and happy children (most of the time 😂) . Yeah,  I tell him to do the odd job around the house…

Lets take into consideration here that I am very much a control freak and boss him around when he’s at home.  I am one of the lucky ones in the sense that if I ask,  he does help. Because  I know plenty that don’t (recognition that is Harvey).

BUT OMG HE HAS SO MUCH TIME.

Child free time.

It’s almost like a bloody magic trick,  I don’t know how they manage it

I stay at home all day and I have no ‘me time.  Like I literally have to bribe the kids to leave me alone with items of food… Why is this?

I can be anywhere in the house and a child will find me…  He can be in the toilet for 45 minutes and no one even notices.

TELL ME YOUR SECRETS DUDE.

Can I please just take 5 minutes and no one even question my whereabouts…IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK?!

Ps: CHILDREN BTW… Please let your mummies have regular toilet breaks… Think of their poor kidneys.
