Tonight my 5th grader had a parents' night for the parents to learn what the kids will be learning this year (each grade has a different night for this). There are no kids allowed at this event so that means only one of us can go while the other stays home to watch the kids. It started at 6pm (which was 10 minutes ago). I had like 3 hours of sleep last night and have been cleaning the house since 8am including washing our 8 week old's clothes by hand because we don't have the money for the laundromat. I'm exhausted and sore all over.
My husband spent the day watching TV and playing video games.
He didn't feel like going and I'm too tired, won't drive our truck and it's pouring outside. So neither of us went. Why am I the only one expected to do these school things?

Very uncool of your DH. He SHOULD have gone. That teacher is going to think your child will have uninvolved parents since none of you showed. :(
