My Husband Wouldn’t Watch Our Newborn To Let Me Shower, So I Came Up With a Plan To Teach Him a Lesson


The arrival of our newborn daughter brought immense joy into our lives, but it also brought about a major shift in our daily routines. As a breastfeeding mother, I found myself constantly tethered to our baby girl, unable to do even the simplest tasks without her by my side. And perhaps the most frustrating of all was the elusive dream of taking a shower alone.

My husband, bless his heart, was eager to help, but his efforts often fell short. Whenever I attempted to sneak in a quick shower, the baby’s cries would inevitably interrupt my precious moments of solitude. And while my husband professed sympathy for my plight, he seemed unable to grasp the gravity of the situation.

“It nearly makes me cry whenever she does,” he would say, ushering our daughter into the bathroom with him, as if his emotional distress somehow justified his intrusion.

Meanwhile, his own shower habits remained unchanged. Every day, without fail, he would indulge in leisurely showers that lasted anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes—completely uninterrupted.

Fed up with the situation, I decided it was time to take matters into my own hands. If my husband couldn’t understand my need for a few moments of peace and cleanliness, then perhaps he needed a taste of his own medicine.

So, one day, when the frustration reached its boiling point, I hatched a plan. As my husband prepared to take his daily shower, I waited until he was fully immersed in his own world of steam and solitude. And then, I struck.

I called out to him from the other side of the bathroom door, feigning distress. “Honey, I really need to talk to you about something urgent,” I pleaded, my voice trembling with urgency.

Startled, my husband hesitated for a moment before reluctantly turning off the water and stepping out of the shower. With a towel wrapped around his waist, he opened the door, his expression a mixture of annoyance and concern.

“What is it?” he asked, his patience wearing thin.

But before he could utter another word, I seized the opportunity. “I need you to watch the baby,” I declared, handing him our daughter who was peacefully sleeping in her bassinet.

His eyes widened in disbelief as he realized what I was asking of him. For a moment, he seemed at a loss for words, his mind struggling to comprehend the role reversal that had just occurred.

But as he held our daughter in his arms, a newfound sense of understanding seemed to wash over him. In that moment, he experienced firsthand the challenges and frustrations that I had been facing every day.

From that day forward, my husband made a conscious effort to prioritize my need for a few moments of solitude. And while our shower routines may still be a bit unconventional, we have learned to navigate the challenges of parenthood together, one shower at a time.
