Things you never want to hear in the middle of the night....

Let me start by saying that I love my husband. He works really hard to look after us all, in a stressful job, with a 4 1/2 hour daily round-trip commute and he STILL makes time to play with the kids when he gets home.
I get all that, really I do.
But that still doesn't mean he doesn't still irritate me now and again.
Last night, he wakened me from a deep sleep by saying 'The baby is crying'. Really??? You woke me up to tell me that???
Now if this had been the other way round and I had wakened on hearing the baby (rather than being dead to the world because I'm obviously knackered), I would just have got up and dealt with her. I would never dream of waking up my sleeping husband to go and sort out any of the children. Unless we get into vomit territory of course such as a few months ago when I had no1 son and no2 son simultanaeously puking in different rooms....
So why does he feel that it's reasonable to wake me up? I know he has to leave ridiculously early, but he can also sleep on the train, there's no chance of so much as a 15 minute catnap for me. Besides which he was already awake!!!
Grumble over. Please feel free to share any similar moans and get them out of your system.....
