My husband told me that I could be a stay at hOme mom. But ever since I have been home with our LO I get nothing but despised from my husband about being home. I know he works hard but he makes me feel
Like my life is so easy and I don't do enough. I've always worked so this isn't easy for me either I already feel like I'm not doing enough by staying home but them I'm made to feel guilty all of the time for it. It's really depressing and Iwish my husband could recognize just how tough this is. But also on good days or during good times at home with my LO I feel guilty like my life had to be hard everyday or it's not legitimate. Does anyone else have these problems or have any tips?

My ex husband was like this... he didn't want me to work (controlling psycho) but he hated and resented me for staying home. He kept complete control of the money and would disappear for weeks at a time. For some, its a control and resentment thing but as m-avi stated I am one that now needs to work for my sanity and security.

It sounds like he is ready for a lesson in humility. You should probably plan a girls weekend and make him take care of your child while you are gone. Having to do all of the thankless dirty work makes you appreciate those that do it for you more.

Next question overall
Do you think Pottery Barn items are worth the money?
