What is it about “I’m getting ready” don’t you understand?
Almost everyone reading this has been to the beach, right? What do you pack? Cooler with drinks, snacks, towels, sunscreen, change of clothes…etc… Now, you’re going to the beach with 5 kids, one being a baby, what do you pack? Fucking anything and everything. You have to be prepared for every possible scenerio. Drinks and snacks….a million at least. Countless towels, clothing, and beach toys. Sunscreen is 100% non negotiable. You have to have a pack and play for the baby! You can’t have your baby crawling all over the beach eating sand and getting breaded in the process. First aid kit, because you never know who is going to end up with a bleeding body part. The list could be endless.
Now, why is it that it is impossible for most men/husbands/fathers to understand all of this?
You cannot simply grab a towel and head out for a day at the beach with 5 kids!
So, then the inevitiable happens….the fight. “What is taking so damn long”?….”What are you bringing”?!?…..yada, yada, yada…
And he doesn’t bother to ask what he can do to help speed up the process….no…just sit on the couch and bitch about how long it’s going to take.
Is this just happening in my house? Yes, I am going to say it…women think far more ahead than men do.
So, after all the screaming in front of the kids and me running around packing bags half assed, he wonders why I may have forgotten something.
Is it just me or am I the only one who realizes the ramifications of not packing properly for kids?
