Just for a bit. I mean, once the kids are in bed that's it till I take her phone out of her sleeping hands. A five minute chat would do, you can all have her back then :-)

I did actually double check with DP if if was him, but seeing as I had to pry him off visforvoltage I figured it wasn't him.

Maybe I should wander on to his forums and beg for my DP to pay attention to me?

My dh is sometimes tempted to come on mn, but then I tell him about threads like the yoni dude or the top gear slashfic and he decides its safer to stay on reddit or /b/

Funnily enough, I'm now upstairs reading this thread, while DW is downstairs folding the washing. Normally these roles are exactly reversed.

I think I'm beginning to see the benefits of MN now...

Well its not my DP! Mine doesnt care if I speak to him or not! grin

I'd wonder if it were my dh, but he is at work at the moment. I think.

Idocrazythings Wed 24-Apr-13 21:32:49

I knew he wouldn't be mine as he'd pick a different username…

How many of you asked your DHs if they started that thread.

I did, I really thought he might have.

Even if you do manage to get 5 mins to chat to her, it'll just be some discussion about some interesting thread on mumsnet and then you'll just wish you hadn't bothered getting her off it!

No chance!
Nearly every night I consider starting a thread saying 'please will you all STOP Being so interesting so I can go to sleep' smile

I'm wondering if ops dw has replied as one of the joke 'hello dear' replies without actually realising its her dh.

If you bought your dear wife an ipad she would spend less time on MN, as MN is much harder to do on the phone, she would be far more efficient at her MNing, leaving more time for you to whip her away for a lovely mini break.

I have the same problem, mate!
