So I stay at home with our 6 month old little girl. I used to work but we decided it would be best if I stay at home with her while I can. My husband is in the military and he works hard but lately when he is home on the weekends he doesnt help me at all! He used to, I would have to ask him but he would help... Just a little while ago he said hey my friend and his wife and little kid are coming over and he said straighten up the house I said ok so I start to straighten up, vaccum sweep the kitchen floor and things like that and I say can you feed Emily (our daughter) and he just sat there playing his video game and I said I shouldnt have to ask you to help me you should just do it and he said well you should just do it! It hurts my feelings when he acts like this! He says its my JOB! Im like well she is your daughter too... And he just sits there and still is! What should I do?

How are things at work for him? My husband is prior military and there were a few times that he acted like that. I noticed that when he did act like that, things were not so great at work. Either they were working really long hours or one of the higher ups was being a jerk. I would just tell him how you feel. Chances are he is just stressed and doesn't know how to deal with it other than take it out on you. Good Luck!
