I’m Jealous of My Husband… but he should be jealous of me

I’m jealous of my husband because he has mammoth lie ins.

I’m jealous of my husband because he gets to sit on his phone and scroll through his facebook newsfeed in the evenings without a toddler jumping all over him.

I’m jealous of my husband because he gets to go to work and escape home life.

I’m jealous of my husband because he gets to poop in peace.

I’m jealous of my husband because he falls asleep as soon as his head hits the pillow.

I’m jealous of my husband because he gets to dictate our days out.

I’m jealous of my husband because he doesn’t get periods.

But do you know what? My husband should be jealous of me! 

My husband should be jealous of me because I regularly wake up before anyone else, and, if I’m quiet enough, I get to have a cup of coffee in complete silence (it usually only lasts five minutes, but still).

My husband should be jealous of me because when we are sitting on the sofas in the evening I get the best cwtches from our toddler who insists on sitting right next to, or on me.

My husband should be jealous of me because I get to spend so much time with our daughter. And that’s the best time in the world.

My husband should be jealous of me because I’m our daughter’s clear favourite, he wouldn’t agree to that but we all know it’s true.

My husband should be jealous of me because I get to work for myself from home which is pretty amazing, even if it does mean that I can never fully switch off. My only boss is our toddler, and possibly the cats.

My husband should be jealous of me because being unable to drive gives me the perfect excuse to sit in the passenger seat and relax.

My husband should be jealous of me because I got to carry and give birth to our daughter. He will never get to experience that.

    This is so true! The grass is always greener I guess. I often think I should stop moaning about tiredness. At least I have the option to nap if both girls go down together, my husband has to confine wirking! Xx
