I make sure you have a homecooked meal when you come home everyday, I make sure OUR daughter gets at least an hour of outside time, I try and make sure the house doesn't look like a friggin tornado ran through it(although w/a 3yr old that's almost impossible)...among other things (yes, I understand how difficult it is to drive around town all day long, carrying Ks of lbs of crap, etc & all u wanna do is relax when you get home)...and YOU'RE the only one making a freaking sacrifice because you want to watch a little TV rather than play with OUR daughter (I can always read a book, he says...which I love to do but I mean sometimes I wanna veg in front of the damn boob tube too!!!)????  Who the hell's supposed to watch her/pay attention to her while we BOTH just veg?  I guess, again, that's all up to me since I don't have an actual job...I'm just the stay at home mommy....and if I mention anything about it, or get pissed off while taking her to her room so that we can play while you're busy being a blob, I'm a NAG....WTH?!

I'm sorry. 

It sounds like you married one of those 'I work outside of the house so I don't have to do anything but eat, sleep, fuck and watch T.V. when I get home' kinda guys.

Luckily, I don't have this problem.

it gets worse in the summer, when he puts on the tv & then sits in front of the computer (with his back turned to the tv!!!)

Why don't you do what I did - I took a weekend off and left my hubby in complete charge of everything!  He learned the hard way just how much work I really did do, and he gained a whole new appreciation for me and for how much work goes into keeping everything together & up and running.  If you can't do the weekend thing, maybe you could just take a Saturday off!  Leave really early in the morning and spend the day with your best friend, or just spend the day sitting on a bench at the park, reading a book you've been wanting to read.  Make sure to take a lunch with you, or at least enough money to be able to get yourself some lunch, and then don't come back until later in the evening.....AFTER dinner time!!  Doing this just might wake your hubby up enough that he'll start helping you out more.  It's worth a try anyway.

@ anonymous...yes, I did. It was a low blow to my self-esteem.  It made me feel like a lazy bum when nothing was being done...

@looking4truth:  I've actually tried doing this before(I locked myself up & scrapbooked...or read...or journaled...not the whole day cuz he'll just call it a movie day).  It works for a while & then he forgets...and then we're back to square 1. 

@ acid: I've even taken to staying up later & doing things on the pc or reading or crafting out here & coming to bed VERY late so that all he'll do is just sleep...

You sound like a nagging wife. Kids don't have to be watched 24/7.

I'm not saying they have to be watched 24/7....I'm just sayin "don't just sit them in front of the TV the whole god damned day."  For heaven sakes, let them play in their room...blocks something...they don't need to be a bump on a log 24/7.
