    That is why the husband is supposed to be aiding and abetting their wives in this.

    That is sure tough for her.

    I worked when my kids were younger. I sure enjoyed the peaceful time at the office. Although now I love the time with my kids. :-)

    Kids should be seen and not had.

    My X never helped with ANYTHING around the house, and we were married in April of ‘59 and had all 4 by July of ’64. My older kids helped out some (because I needed it). They are all still very close, even tho’ we are scattered all over the country and the kids still help me now that I’m retired (especially my 2nd son).

    “Kids should be seen and not heard.”
    -
    If any of your stuff is on fire… I’ll just tell them (children) to ignore or keep quiet about it and enjoy the show.

    I don’t know, I’ve seen terrible parents say they need a day off and good parents deserve a day off too.

    You misquoted wndrwrthg. He(?) wrote HAD, not HEARD.

    While don’t happen to agree with the original comment, I did find it funny.

    I feel no sympathy. She didn’t find those kids under a cabbage leaf after all, and they weren’t her first kids either so she had to know what to expect.

    @Dampwaffle

    You would find that is faulty reasoning. Most people have no idea what to expect.

    Oh…
    Thought he meant to spell “heard”.
    OK, never mind then.
