And she just feels like the buzz kill

The bad cop is always made to feel like a buzz kill rather than a responsible parent. The good cop suggests pizza for dinner/a late bedtime/a trip to Disneyland. The bad cop says they should eat healthier/they have early mornings/they can’t afford Disneyland. And rather than say, “I understand,” the good cop says, “Aaaw. You’re no fun.” Which is never nice to hear from your spouse.
