I work 10-18 hours a week. I have a 2 year old and a 2 month old. The 2 year old is in daycare because he loves it and I work when my husband doesn't and stay home with the 2 month old. My husband hates his job and really wants a different one. I feel like he takes it out on me. I can not find a job that pays as much as his or i would gladly let him be a sahd.
Anyway, day after day I feel like if I don't get everything done, he thinks I should because I only bring in $140 a week. He gets cranky if I take a break from the kids, mention that I'm tired, forget to do something. I'm really tired right now so I'm sure this doesn't make too much sense. But I am the main caretaker when the kids are home. I have a 2 month old so I haven't slept more that 3 hours at a time for a while now. I do most of the house work, and I keep up a rental building. Some days I just don't do anything. I take a break. Like tonight I tried to make a complicated dinner for fun, but the prep took too long and by the time I sat down to eat he was frustrated about something I didn't do during the day and wanted it done right that second. Then he got upset that I was upset I couldn't just sit down and eat. Anyway, Do you ever feel like your husband/partner doesn't think you are pulling your weight?
