OK....how can I show or tell my family that I wanna feel special??

I am a full time working mom....I work, take care of the kids, cook and clean everything. I rarely have time to myself, but I wouldnt want it, bc I want to just be with my husband and kids when I am off....but.....although I do all the house work, and cooking and all things to do with the kids, my husband doesnt do special things for me..well today I was feeling a bit left out...and I txt him a few naughty txts, or I made him a great dinner...thinking that he would make me feel special...or ive been hinting all day. well when we went to bed, he just like didnt care all that i did all day or any other day, i think e veryone wants thier spouse do special things for them,.,,i just dont know how to let him know with out (in his words) being a demanding bitch....we fought but at the end i just wanted him to care....what can I do?

  • Well, props to you. I can't imagine doing all of that and getting no appreciation. It sounds like you deserve something special. I'm honestly not sure how you should deal with it, but I just wanted you to know that I'm sorry you're feeling like that.

  • I really don't know but I'm sorry that he's not appreciating your hard work.

  • a demanding bitch? I would tear the boy up. you are doing the right thing. should should get some time to joy for you.

    i would have a stern conversation about what he thinks is "demanding". and never call me a bitch for wanting you to pay attention. etc..

  • You can make yourself feel special....be your own best friend,your own cheerleader....men have trouble showing appreciation and the get tired of hearing you asking for it and being needy.
