  • Do the best that you can we are not Superwomen if we were we wouldn't be saying anything but if we keep going the way we are we will blow a gasket and go straight to the hospital...So let's do what we can and live our happy lives. hang in there we are all in the same boat GL

  • I always feel that way. Me and my husband both like a clean house but when it comes down to doing laundry, picking up the babys toys or even simply washing dishes its all up to me to do it. I sometimes put my little man to bed early like just 30 min and fill the bath tub with hot water and just relax with some candles and soft music.

  • I do all the cleaning, cooking, laundry, that kind of thing. but I have all day to do it when he's at work. plus he tries to help out in other ways, like watching dd for an hour when he gets home so I can chill. I like things clean, and he doesn't care as much, so I do it more for myself than him lol

  • used to have this happening to me all the time. and finally i got proactive in telling my husband what i needed done and by when. eventaully i broke him in to the habit of helping me. not HUGELY but enough to make me feel more appreciated

  • I am the Incrediable Invisible woman! Until the kids need my car, money food you name it then everyone sees me. That's when I take advantage of my super powers and with one felled swoop all that needs to be done around the house is done in no time at all. Aaaahhh the power of a mom!

  • yep i do but i'm use to it. my hubby does help SOMETIMES but only if it gets him what he wants *hint hint* which it hardly does cause after doing the other things that he won't do.. i'm to tired to even do THAT!
