I have recently started an inhome daycare and it feels like I never get to go out and do anything. So tonight my DH got his mom to keep our son and he promised we were going to go out on a date. So I got dressed up and all ready to go and there he sat in his yucky clothes that he had worn all day. I asked if he was going to change and he said there was no need. So we went to dinner, no where nice, and came home. So now he's been asleep on the couch for a couple hours and here I am.....am I wrong to be upset?Answer Question

No one is ever wrong for feeling upset. It's your actions that count.
If I were you, I would calmly tell him how it made you feel. Tell him how you've been feeling "trapped" because you're always at home, and that you were really looking forward to going out and having a good time. Tell him your feelings were a little hurt. It's not a bad thing to let him know how you feel.
That said...I agree with the first response...people (not just men, IMO) can not guess what you want or expect of them unless you tell them first. It's not that he blatantly disregarded your feelings; he simply didn't know.
