Oh yeah, I forgot about that! The Y and Lifetime Fitness were awesome in those early years.

This! No one else can seem to comprehend that having the other parent around so that you can mow the grass or work on the car is not a break.

...or worse yet, said other parent feels that they deserve a break since they worked all week, leaving you alone with the kids on a Saturday or Sunday - or even for four days and nights.

That's very true, I am glad that I am not the only one who feels like this. Sometimes I feel bad that weekends with mom and son are still like being on the clock a bit because I am still doing cooking, housework, looking after the kid a bit as well. Usually when the Gmom comes and the errands are done, I have a few hrs to myself which is a bit of a day off.

Sorry to hear that, FTM.

How about this one? Wife comes home with a chip on her shoulder, notices that there are dishes in the sink (or something else that isn't "right") and (with or without a sign, hands on hips or a rolling of the eyes) asks "so what did YOU do today?"

That is my greatest pet peeve.

Meanwhile, somebody's pajamas, bras and panties are laying in a heap on the bathroom floor. Hint: they ain't mine.
