When your co-parent isn't holding up their end of the bargain, is it okay to pick up and leave?
That's what one woman is asking, after she packed a bag and left her family behind to show her husband how overwhelmed she is with childcare. She took to Reddit to find out if she took it too far and went into a-hole territory.
I’m (35F) probably the a**hole but my god I am exhausted.
I’m a stay at home mom to my daughter (2) and son (4 months). I’m a preschool teacher and it didn’t make sense to go back to work with the cost of childcare and pandemic risk. My husband works and makes enough to support us, and all my salary would end up going to child care.
We have separate accounts (his idea) and a joint household account that he puts money into. I contributed to this account when I was working.
He works from home, 9-5 desk job that isn’t stressful (he admits it’s a “cupcake job”), has weekends and nights off, and takes vacation days. He likes his coworkers and often I hear him joking around on calls to them. I love that he loves his job.
