Is it to much to ask for help from my husband or does he just not Know how to help with family functions or chores or kids.
See he works 5am-2pm, comes home and can rest all day, which he will go on the computer, or play games or watch a movie. I don't mind it right when he gets home but until bed time.
I am running around with my head cut off when he gets home and would at least expect him to feed our 6month old son his solids, but no i come home to a screaming baby that is hungry after i pick up a kid from school. So instead of my son getting his food at 3pm he gets it like 3:45pm.
I fold up clothes, expect my 3 year old to help me with his clothes. Anyway i fold up his clothes put his jeans, underwear, undershirts, socks away, but leave his shirts on our guest bed and hope he would put it away, but no leaves it there for me to get to.
I do dishes, laundry, change diapers, get kids dressed, feed kids, make supper, lunches, snacks, put kids to bed, and even make time to go by him for lunch, and even make time to help him out with outside chores. I even take garbage out, i have been doing the spring yard work and even cleaned the garage.
I would at least like a break for myself for an hr, but i don't get that and it sucks.
I have talked to him about it, and he just says i pay bills, u don't, i work 8hrs u dont'. type deal. well now he can't use the bills because it is my checking account too. And to make it even more fair, i go get groceries and he doesn't, i take care of our kids, he barely doesn't/

I do not understand why so many men do not respect what their wives contribute to the family. just onne of the reasons I always have worked at least PT. I like my husband knowing that I have financial skin-in-the-game too. I work, he works. I parented and he parented. Not 50/50 but 100/100-
