I've said here before that my husband makes poor decisions that drive me crazy. Last night was a banner night, and I just have to get this off my chest before I explode.
So, he organizes a Christmas outing to go see lights on a hayride outside at night. It's been on our calendar for a month and we went last night. On the 45 min drive there, I find out that he knows nothing about this place. I can't believe that he's got other people going to brave the cold, at night, drive all that way, and we don't even have a recommendation about this place?!? Anyway, I let that go.
This is a hayride, so when it's our turn we climb into the back of this big trailer with seats. We all sit; I have our 21 month old on my lap. After we are all seated, I decide I want to move to sit next to another woman. Did I mention that it's dark out? Anyway, I stand up, my 21 month old in my arms, take one step, and fall face first down onto the metal flooring of this trailer. My son's head bounces on the trailer, he's wailing, I'm scared to death since I just heard his head bounce. I'm confused as to why I fell since there's no part of the trailer that sticks up or blocks my path. I look back, and my husband has set down our bag in the middle of this trailer. That's what I tripped over.
Our son is fine, but it certainly could have been worse. The thing I can't stand is that he continually puts our kids at risk with his (yes, I'm angry) stupidity.
He does this kind of thing all the time! Once, he asked our 3 year old if she wanted to help in the kitchen. He suggested that she open the door to the HOT OVEN!!! for him so he could put something in. I immediately said, "NO! What are you thinking?!?" His response, which I've heard sooooo many times now, is "Uh, I wasn't thinking."
He's a smart guy, but he does stupid stuff and I'm sick to death of it. The ones that get me are the ones that put our kids in danger. I could give plenty more examples.
Thanks for listening.
