An orgasm & random fun when they aren't at work. Men are assholes

And my husband is a good father. I'm resentful of how little gage gets away with due to his work schedule

I think we each have crappy parts of our responsibilities.

When I was working full time and our dd was little, he actually did a lot for me.   He stayed home with her the one day a week he was off and I went to work.  When she got sick, he stayed home.  He even made dinner back then, changed diapers, got up with her early etc.

That's not necessarily men - it's the stay at home parent.

A good friend of mine went back to work between 2 and 4 weeks after each of her 4 kids were born.  Her husband was the sahp - even homeschooled them all.

That's cool but not the norm

My DH does a ton with the kids. When they were younger he took care of his fair share of feedings, bath times, bed times, doctor's appointments, etc. We switch off bedtime still. Tonight it's my turn, tomorriw his. 🤗

Just today, I took DD to the city for a day out with my niece, and he took DS to the forest preserve with our nephew. We both had long days with the kids.

Nope. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I love being a mom.

I am also lucky to have a good dh. He works hard and helps out at home with the kids.
