Husband Tells Wife He’s “Being Lazy” With Their Girls—Then He Texts 10 Words That Make Her Heart Sink

Yeah, I was angry. Sure, I was having a super easy, relaxed day at work, but it was work. I was working. So he needed to be homeschooling. That was the deal. So why wasn’t he doing things like I thought he should?!

I had been homeschooling our daughters for three years, and I’ll be the first to say it; it ain’t easy. I just told someone the other day you need to have a calling to homeschool because if you don’t you’re going to have a very hard time. If the idea is just some passing folly then when the going gets tough you’ll be gone. When my husband and I decided that I would go back to work full-time, he agreed to take over 100 percent of the homeschooling responsibility. That way when I was off we could just all hang out as a family and enjoy time together. Perfect!

But there I sat on a Saturday morning at work, and when I asked my husband how their day was going he replied, “good. We’re just being lazy.”

Wait, what?! He should be educating the children!

“Have you done school yet?” I asked back quickly.

“Not a full day yet. But we will.” He answered.

Then I continued to question him about our 5-year-old, and what she had done so far, since I knew she was the more difficult one to keep focused because of age. In that moment all I saw was what I was doing, and I needed to make sure he was carrying his weight to my satisfaction. But also performing to my specific standards. You know, like how I would do it.

So as I continued to question his schedule and progress he finally responded back.
