I am a SAHM. I meet every single need of our 5 month old son. I left him with his daddy yesterday for a couple hours and my husband nearly went crazy. I feel that all mothers deserve a little pampering every now and then. My husband won't give me money to get something as simple as getting my hair done. He won't put me on his account so I have no access to our money. He has the money but he chooses to spend it on parts for his hunting truck and dune buggy. What do I have to do to make him realize that I have needs too? I need new clothes because my pre-pregnancy and maternity clothes don't fit anymore. I just feel unappreciated.Answer Question

Leave him with the baby more often and do as little as possible around the house when he complains, tell him you treat me like I don't do anything so I thought that was what I would do. That is ridiculous. This is not the 1950's. I am a SAHM and I do the bills and such. Talk to him calmly before you do stop doing things around the house and such. I had to write down what I do around the house and then ask hubby to do a few things. He asked me if I would really do them, I responded how do you think you had clean dishes and cloths today, I am. His did his chores without complaint.
