'Mortified' mum leaves husband after his filthy behaviour forced nanny to quit

A disgruntled mum has lifted the lid on the multitude of reasons she dumped her ex-husband shortly after having a child together – with the tipping point coming after their nanny quit her job because of one particularly disgusting habit.

In an anonymous post on Kidspot, the mum explained her former spouse had always had a bad attitude, and had done several questionable things in the lead up to the couple’s divorce.

She wrote: “His attitude was the death knell for our marriage (a husband who refuses to let his wife sleep in past 5am one morning a week is not remotely attractive) but there were so many incidents along the way.

“Leaving a packet of cigarettes on the floor for our child to munch on. Eating pistachios in the car on the way home from work knowing our son was anaphylactic to them just by touch (yes, he was hospitalised with a reaction that night). Like… real poisoning situations. He just didn’t pay attention. And he’d get angry with me for being angry.”

The mum then said she was admitted to hospital with pneumonia when her son was two, which left her husband to look after their child with the help of family members and their nanny, Cheryl.

But when the mum returned home three days later, she found a note from Cheryl saying she had quit – and was horrified to discover why.

She added: “I walked in the front door and the stench of soiled nappies hit me.

“But I couldn’t see any in the kitchen or lounge. Instead, on the kitchen benchtop, which hadn’t been cleared or cleaned, there was a note. ‘I quit – Cheryl.’

“I went upstairs to check the bedrooms. Disaster zone.

“But there was something different about the stairs. Every second one held a rolled-up dirty – some of them pooey – nappy. Not even in a nappy baggie. Just sitting there.

“Evidently, my husband had changed nappies and left them on the steps, ready to be taken out as he left. He didn’t take them out. He adorned the stairs with uncovered soiled nappies – some presumably from three days ago.”

The mum was “mortified” by the state of her home, and realised she needed to get out of her marriage.

She explained: “I’d just recovered from pneumonia and now I had to clean the entire house that was considerably less clean than it had been on the night I became ill.

“Ya couldn’t get the nappies to the bin? I wanted to call and yell at my husband.

“I was mortified, but Cheryl never answered my calls so I could explain. She must have been disgusted and felt so disrespected. So on top of everything else, my husband cost me trusted help at home.

“And that’s just a very small part of the story of how he became my ex just eight weeks later.”
