Anyone else have to deal with this? It isn't fair! What do you do to ensure more chores are shared?
Nothing has changed, really... He did end up loading the dishwasher after I asked him again. He sighed and rolled his eyes but he did it. =) But about talking to him, I really have. No distractions, not yelling. I will say "This pregnancy is a lot harder than my first. Working at a daycare is hard and chasing a three year old is hard. I would really like some help in the evenings." He says he doesn't see why I complain. I was just fine when I was pregnant with our three year old. He just doesn't get that. But here is a kicker! Two days ago. He brought home a puppy. An eight week old mut. She is very cute and my son loves her but I kind of worried it was going to add to my daily chores. So I said, "if we're going to keep her I need to know for sure you will help with her." He said duh, of course he would... And by the next day, he already started getting angry at me for not cleaning up her poop since he forgot to take her out on his lunch break. I don't get a lunch break. And I don't feel like it is my responsibility to clean up after her when he "forgets she is here" then goes to his friends after work. So I put my foot down and said "I am finding a home for her." That snapped him out of it and he's done really good today but we'll see. He actually just told me he is cooking pork chops tonight. I got sent home from work bc my back pain is almost intolerable. So maybe he feels bad now, but we'll see.
Thank you ladies so much for all the hugs and advice! And the ladies who are going through the same, I am so sorry! If I find a solution I will let you know!!
