Does your SO ever tell you that you have it soo easy? I get told that all the time. Well I made a list of all the things I do and my "titles"- taxi driver, nurse- stuff like that. I gave my SO the list and he just looked at me funny. I guess I am just saying that men should appreciate us a little more! I love him to pieces!

  • lol, I was a SAHM for years, and just recently went back to work part time. Now my husband has our kids during the day. He told me the other day that he has always appreciated what I did when I was home with them, but NOW....he says SAHMs must be part goddess! he said he appreciates me so much more now. Hope things get better for you, hugs! :)

  • Yup I do & if I say I need a break SO simply goes you'll get one when she starts school. WTF really seriously!? A) that is too far away since we are not doing any pre schooling at all B) I am going back to work when she starts school

    Ugh men! Slowly over the past few years though he starts to realize that I do a lot more then her first thought but still its annoying when he says things of the sort like I have it so easy or my break comes when her schooling starts aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

  • Oh yeah my DH never thinks I have much to do but for the 5 hours two days a week he's home alone with them he acts like its so hard....but its not supposed to be for me? lol, he's great but just doesn't get it. I once did a similar thing and wrote down everything I have to do in one day it was like two pages long and he seemed a little confused about it, but it does take ALOT to keep everything going and running smoothly

  • Husband knows, for the most part, what I do each day and how much I do - He tells me constantly how much He appreciates everything I do and praises me for how well I take care of/teach Our Son and tend to Our Home. He also says He doesn't know how I do it, and that He couldn't! But I think He could..He is amazing at everything He does - and I mean EVERYTHING.

  • My DH is the worst for this. And, we go through times when he'll do my "job" for a few hours...and he GETS it!! Then, a few days later its back to thinking I dont do anything, and he stops helping at all. Its frustrating, but its a guy thing!!

  • They don't understand and they expect us to understand their job. Its just one of those things that we have to work through

  • My DH says the same thing that i do 'nothing' all day but when he has to stay home to watch the monkey hes calling my cell phone within 5 minutes "where are you" "when are you coming home". And he dosent understand that having a 3 (almost 4) year old in the grocery store by yourself makes it a little hard to concentrate and he complains that i forget important things...but god for bid i ask him to stay home with the monkey while i go shopping.. I have just come to the conclusion that they are in a totally different genome then us and us women are the master species
