Anybody have a partner that is dramatic when child gets sick?
I get that my husband feels bad and worries for our son when he is sick... but he acts like it’s the end of the world. He mopes around, googles a bunch and constantly asks me if everything is going to be ok or asks if I’ve called the drs office yet. Meanwhile I’m cooking, cleaning up after messes, and taking care of our sick toddler. Doesn’t matter how mild or severe the illness, he acts as if our son is on his deathbed. He’s not necessarily making more work for me since I do everything when he’s at work anyway. But it’s just the fact that he’s home and could be helping out but he’s not, and on top of that his constant questioning of whether or not our son will survive is mentally tiring. I worry too but I know what warrants a call to the dr. Our son is 2.5 yrs old. He’s had his fair share of colds and other viral infections, and visits to the ER for falls and other shenanigans. Luckily nothing bacterial with a prescribed antibiotic. You would think that by now my husband has gotten the hang of having a sick child but nope. Anyway.. anybody else in the same boat? Or was? How did you help your partner?
