Cognitive dissonance

Today, in the same conversation with the same person, I got chewed out because our kids want to spend more time with me than her, and also because the kids spend too much time with her and she can’t work from home effectively. Can anyone explain how that works? FML

Maybe she pissed because youre the "fun parent" in the relationship and you make it seem kinda easy, while she wants to be the fun parent, but at the same time she just wants the kids to chill a bit so she can get stuff done, but because they're kids and want to play and have fun, it's not really working out when she needs to get stuff done, so kinda wishes you were there to divert their attention
