My husband is lazy. I understand that he works full time but I work part time & take care of our son from morning until bedtime. Even after our son is asleep I have the monitor & am the one that goes and checks on him. If he wakes up in the middle of the night I go to him. I do all of the cooking cleaning and laundry on top of working 3 night shifts Friday - Sunday. I think my husband should at least get up with our son on Saturday & Sunday mornings. I am not a lazy person its not like I would sleep all day like he does. ( He slept until 1pm yesterday.)
I really just want a little help. I am feeling very unappreciated and I am starting to resent him. He cant even make sure he hangs a wet towel or puts his socks in the hamper. & forget any kind of "Man" jobs such as hanging shelves or mowing grass. I have tried everything. I have tried explaining my feeling, I have also tried getting really mad & yelling & I have tried ignoring him. But I am at my breaking point. I really feel like I am gonna loose it. He constantly puts his needs before mine. I feel like a door mat. What can I do??

OK when you first got in a relationship with your DH was he like that or did you baby him because you loved him and wanted to do those things for him?which is perfectly OK I'm just asking you did you create the monster your talking about or was he already created by his mommy? just talk to him when your not angry or upsetand tell him that you need help and give him a few things to start helping you with try not to overwhelm him just pick up after yourself to start with add to the list one or 2 things every week until you feel balanced.... it also helps if you say DH can you help me with this and both of you do it together that way he has you to guide him through things sometimes our DH's don't help because they don't even know where to begin...
