I had notes from the school saying Honeybear has not been himself the last two days. Just that. When I spoke to the teacher’s assistant she said he does not eat and is just not himself. As soon as we got home, he ate a snack and then dinner and he played and looked fine to me. I saw his teacher this morning and she said he is not himself. I asked what is wrong because he has been eating at home. She says he is sad. She says there seems to be a sadness in him and he will not eat and does not want to play.
She asked, in a very roundabout way, if Hubby and I have broken up. I think she thought he might be sad over that. Also, hubby had dropped Honeybear at day-care the last two mornings which is unusual.
I was a little taken aback, and now I am worried. What is my little baby sad about? Obviously something is wrong.
Hubby has been working late shift all week so Honeybear will not really see him until tomorrow afternoon and then again on Monday afternoon. When I tried to explain the effect of Hubby working the late shift all week, to him, he was upset with me and just assumed I was making a huge deal over nothing. Now maybe I was not so melodramatic?
Honeybear runs into the house calling for his Papa and looking for him. He asks all afternoon where his Papa is. Hubby has no idea the effect of these hours on our family. I have tried to explain, however, we end up in fight usually, so I try not to say anything. It is not just Mom’s that have guilt , I am very sure Hubby feels it too, I just wish he would understand that there are things in life far more important than work.
