Does your husband help out with kids when your hurt or sick???

My husband hardly helps with stuff like baths and I don't push the fact,but today I burned my finger and it hurt like hell. I asked him to help out by giving the our 2 year old a bath and he acted like it was a big deal, so I just did it. It pissed me off that he didn't help me out. I am still a little angry. ahhhh

  • i have thought this once or twice but lately i can't say that i wish he would do more since he really does do a lot. i think though that he does wish and expect to do more and i think i really should. i'm sorry your husband is being a dick. i would just tell him that he was being very insensitive and maybe next time he wants sex just don't give him any, say something like i'm to tired from doing so much with the kids all day. after all does he really deserve it.

  • LOL I was thinking that. I guess cause he works and I stay home I feel like I should do everything, but I was in a lot of pain and needed a little help for once.

  • I couldn't do it without him! I am soooo lucky! I had the hardest day today and he was so sweet! He's the one thing that didn't fall apart today!

  • Yeah....NO. I have had 3 surgeries since we have been married. His "helping" me consists of bringing me back from the hospital then plopping himself into his game chair to play video games. I pretty much had to bang on the wall to get him to remember I might need something. Honestly it was easier to just fill up on Vicodin and do everything myself. But when he needs me - I am 100% there for him. Whatever.

  • I'm pretty lucky, my DH will help out without me even asking - he can tell if I'm sick, and just does what needs to be done. Sorry about your finger, burns are the worst!

  • Of course he helps out, all the time, not just when I'm sick. We're a team that he takes pride in being a part of. Sorry you're married to an absolute tool.
