A sleepy young father raised the ire of Redditors after he asked his wife if she wanted their baby son to get hurt. Her answer wasn’t exactly what he was expecting. Here is the full story.
They’re a Young Family
OP is a 28-year-old man who is married to a 28-year-old woman. They have one child together, a 5-year-old son.
Their Schedules Don’t Match Up
OP works full time and regularly clocks about 70 hours a week, mostly on the night shift.
His wife works part-time and only on Tuesdays, which OP has off.
He’s the Breadwinner
Largely because of the discrepancy in their hours worked, OP makes most of the couple’s money.
They don’t really need his wife’s income, but she likes her job.
He Sleeps through the Morning
Since OP doesn’t get home from work until 4 or 5 am most nights, he usually sleeps through the morning.
That’s fine most days, when his wife doesn’t work.
She’s Out Early
But on Tuesday’s, OP’s wife gets up early to get ready for work. She feeds the baby and then puts him back in his crib.
She Can’t Take the Racket
Since the little boy still hears his mom moving around, though, he cries until she leaves the house.
OP usually doesn’t hear it since he’s a heavy sleeper, but it really distracts his wife.
She Found a Solution
So, the last couple of Tuesday morning’s, OP’s wife laid the baby in the bed next to him while he was sleeping.
He Was in Danger
When OP woke up on those mornings, he was shocked to see the baby lying next to him. He was also a little panicked, because he knows that lying in a full size bed with a sleeping adult can be dangerous for babies.
He Wanted to Go Back
Concerned for his son’s safety, OP asked his wife to just leave the boy in his crib when she left for work, like she used to do.
She Said He Was a Bad Dad
But that idea annoyed OP’s wife, who said that he was a bad father for not noticing the baby was next to him and waking up to take care of him.
He Should Have Stopped at One Question
That made OP mad, so he lashed out and asked his wife what would happen if the baby fell out of bed.
He asked her rhetorically if she actually wanted the baby to get hurt.
She Took the Kid and Ran
That was the end of the coversation for OPs wife, who said she was going to stay with her sister.
So she grabbed the baby and stomped out of the house.
He’s Clueless What He Did Wrong
After a couple of days, OP still hasn’t heard from his wife, and she’s not answering his texts. He’s never seen her so mad, and he can’t really figure out what the problem is.
He Was Being the Protector
All OP was trying to do was keep his son safe, but now it seems like he has caused troubles in his marriage.
He Needs to Step Up
Redditors came down really hard on OP, with most of them telling him that he was a complete jerk to his wife and son.
They say that he doesn’t get to sleep in now that he has a baby, and many of them want to know how often his wife gets to sleep in.
But She’s Not Perfect Either
Some commenters are pretty upset with OP’s wife, too, for leaving the baby with a sleeping adult.
But even they think OP himself is being irresponsible and lashed out when he shouldn’t have.
