Annoying habits of my other half!!!!

So I stumbled on this meme on nairaland but the comment box wasn’t adequate for me to detail my dear spouse’s own so here I am settling down to “offload” this dilemma of mine….
I must start from the beginning
My mother in law is a sweet little woman…. She’s actually small physically so little is apt in describing her.Most times I feel know I got a good deal as per getting her for a(an) MIL!!!She’s peaceful and quite generous but …

She fidgets… kai the woman can’t just keep still!!! She must always just find one activity or the other for herself. It usually doesn’t bother me except when I have to wake up at 6am because she wants to bath the kids…or she packs hubby’s cloths that she wants to wash them. The day after no 2’s naming ceremony you can imagine my shock when I strolled into the kitchen and there she was FRYING MOIN MOIN supposedly to preserve it. IMO because she had nothing else to do….

So now to today’s story :D
She has passed this fidgeting habit to my dear spouse….
At first it wasn’t so obvious but over time I can see that my dear spouse has a hard time keeping still.It wouldn’t matter so much if the fidgeting doesn’t make him turn my world upside down in the bid of helping (IMO joblessness) but more and more im tempted to flog my husband for this silly habit…
He can just head to the children’s drawers and say he’s arranging and just distort my already colour, size and occasion sequenced arrangement of the said clothes, bear in mind that I mostly dress up the kids…. So my own order of arrangement should be in place abi?
On some other occasion my dear spouse peeled nearly N500 worth of irish potatoes and sliced them and kept in the freezer(I no send am work oh and we were not eating chips for breakfast/lunch/dinner oh) then kept ranting about “that’s how things should be done etc” the next day when the potatoes started to go black he had nothing to say again….
Today now he has emptied my freezer and is going on about how I didn’t arrange the things properly and how my space management is not good etc etc I have gone to look now meat he has left on the counter top, bread he has abandoned on the counter top and he has the nerve to tell me to stop leaving remnants in the freezer… where do I then keep them biko?
The supposed reorganization of the freezer has the whole place looking quite jam packed so I wonder what he was/is going on about!!!
I have told him he will have to decide who Is going to do kitchen management at this rate, whether na me or na him….
Because I don tire~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lol, my hubby does the same thing, acting like he knows more efficient ways for everything. Like when I was weaning baby no 2 off the pacifier, I had made up my mind to do it at a time when I was free enough to ignore the night time cries. Hubby decided 6months. when the boy began screaming his head off, i moved with me and my pillow to the next room.

Next night, he sterilized the pacifier himself and stuck it in the boy's mouth. I just tire sometimes.

Frying Moin moin... how?

Lol at ur husband tryna help out.
IMHO, i think you shouldnt totally discourage him from helping out in the house cos if he stops u'll completely hate it. So talk to him about how u want things to be done, hopefully he'll understand ur point of view and if not... well na to dey rearrange everytime be that!

Merry Christmas
