My Wife = Idiot
OK - This seems harsh but I have to share my story or I going to go off the deep end. I have been with my partner for over 10 years and I have always been annoyed with lack of intelligence but I tolerated it as part of the overall person. Meaning, other areas offset the lack of intelligence enough to maintain the relationship. However, we now have two children under the age of two and I am exhausted from the additional effort needed to maintain the household. I could write an entire book on the wondrous experiences marrying an idiot affords you, but todays 'idiot' move has motivated me to find this website for help. My wife took the children to run some errands in our black SUV. Years ago I had to establish a mandatory stipulation to leaving the house. The basic guidance is "please bring a sweater every time". I can't tell you how many movies/dinners/events have been ruined because my wife was cold. She still struggles with the concept and each and every time I have to remind her. Today, I am sure she enjoyed the 78 degree weather and felt like she was at the spa when the car hit 85-90 inside. Now I have tried to explain, babies can not regulate heat the same way an adult can so please be careful when temperatures hit the extremes. Also, direct sunlight through a car window is very bad for babies and can cause skin damage and overheating. Well, when she came by my office for a visit I was curious why my daughter was sweating, hot to the touch and begging for water. When I questioned why, my wife replied, "She just saw her cousin". Hmmmmm, why is her baby brother beat red and feels like like he has been placed in a micro-wave oven. Her reply, "I think he has a rash". It's funny when we go on a trip and I can tell her a snow capped mountain is really the "Great Salt Mountains of Utah" and we are flying to Southern CA. Then I explain I am teasing and on the return flight she falls for it again. This one isn't funny because of the serious risk of injury, but I feel helpless and afraid for my children.
Thanks for listening.
