Things are VERY tight for myself, and my husband. I know this holds true for most of todays families. The other day we go into a fight and he said "I will get another job, so you can keep on sitting on your ass at home". I said "Do you really think that is what I do?". He responded, "yes". It rocked my core. I am a SHAM to two girls, ages 4 years and 2 years. Our 2 year old is a slight special needs child. She attends PT, and OT. This takes places two days a week. Guess who takes her to these sessions? Me. I keep our home very clean. I will not say spotless, b/c it isn't. I do laundry EVERY day. I clean a room everyday. I cook dinner every night. We go out to dinner about once every 9 weeks. I bathe our children every night. Before he left for work he said "Once again, my phone charger is unplugged...!@$@#%!!" I said "Well, we have two kids under 5 ...". Anyway, I feel like I work so hard and get put down to nothing. ADVICE?

First of all take 3 deep deep deep breaths in a quiet place for a moment.
I know exactly how you feel I am going through the same thing all I can tell you is continue to do your part and try not to overwhelm yourself when cooking try to make enough for the next evening so you won't have to worry about tomorrow dinner, the girls if they are not too dirty and can skip aday of not batheing them it is ok one day is not going to hurt. And most of all try not to be on your dh back about him guys are guys and think they are only here on this world to work and have sex. Don't worry things will work out so try not to nagg on him to much it will get old for both of you and the kids are the ones that suffer. Just go with the flow. Remember your vows For Better or Worse.
