Im Two Inches Tall
My husband just got back from a business trip. He has been gone all week. (Its been a very quiet and HAPPY week.) The afternoon started with him griping about me not making him feel welcome enough because I was chasing two very small children instead of waiting on him hand and foot. I even attempted to offer a sincere apology which he just threw in my face.
I needed to go to the grocery store and I was waiting for him to come home so I didnt have to take the toddler. Well everyone decided to go. I was trying to expedite the shopping trip because it was starting to get late and our toddler needed time to unwind before bedtime. He didn't like being rushed. So as soon as we got to the parking lot he started cursing me out. He threw every insult he could - all infront of both little kids. I actually stood up for myself and interrupted him and said, "You will not curse at me in front of our children." I said if firmly. THAT DID NOT GO OVER WELL! He continued berrading me but at least now he's not talking to me.
Its bad enough that my children know the swear words because he cannot control his tongue. But it is completely unacceptable for him to continue to treat me so poorly. I am scared to death that my sons will treat women as badly as he treats me and that my daughter will be treated this poorly.
I just keep telling myself that it has to get better. I have invested so much. It just takes a little more time...I hope.
