Being a new parent is hard work. When you’re juggling a job and other priorities too, raising kids can get challenging. What you don’t need when you’re trying to keep things together and make a good life is someone from the outside looking in and criticizing.
So, when one woman’s mother-in-law started complaining about her cleaning, the son struck back and his reaction went viral!
Full Disclosure – Clint’s A Blogger
Clint runs the “No Idea What I’m Doing” Daddy blog on Facebook. He’s married to Mel Edwards and he charts their journey into parenthood and shares it with his fans on the social network. That means he has a bit of an audience.
Clint’s Mom Interfered In Their Relationship
Clint says that he was minding his own business when his mother called and asked him, “Doesn’t it bother you that Mel won’t keep a cleaner house?”
He says that he let it go at the time but it continued to play on his mind for weeks following the event.
He Acknowledges This Wasn’t Spite
Clint says that it’s important to recognize that his mother wasn’t looking to start a fight. She wasn’t trying to drive a wedge between him and Mel. The question appeared to stem from genuine curiosity on his mother’s part.
Clint Says His Relationship Is A Partnership
He says he thinks his mom misunderstood how relationships work now. He said, “She’d obviously noticed that our home wasn’t all that tidy. Not that it was only Mel’s job to clean it. I see our marriage as a partnership, so cleaning is as much my responsibility as it is hers.”
