Ok, to be fair he also shops, ( He went shopping three times yesterday and once today), plays video games and tells me what tasks I should be doing. Meanwhile I'm trying to get all the housechores done while taking care of a baby and refereeing fights between the 2 big kids.

He should never tell you what to do. When I hear those words they drive me nuts. You are a SAHM then you are the boss he should be helping you! It's notice that he shops but get him to help with the kids.

 Yeah, when he does that I tell him I'm not his employee, and if he wants to be able to assign me tasks then I need to be paid at least 10$ an hour. LOL! If he would nicely ask me to do him a favor, I would, but he'll say it like it's a demand and that doesn't fly. Like he came home from the store and pulled out cake mix and a canister of icing and said, "You're going to bake Alan's cake this year", (his bday is in two weeks). I was planning on baking his cake anyway rather than buying it unless Alan requested otherwise, but him TELLING me that I'm going to bake it just rubs me the wrong way. Anyway, I was planning on baking it from scratch.

  I told dh, then why don't YOU bake it?

 Not mine .. he'd tell me "I have to much to do, I can't spend all day in bed!"  And he sure as heck wouldn't be out shopping that much!  If he did go shopping, he'd have me with him; he almost never goes without me.

LOL, Went to his Mom's to eat. Gotta love how some men will act like they don't know how to do things they don't feel like doing.

Well, unless he had a personality transplant, you should have figured this out BEFORE you married him.  I've been married 35 years, and the only time my DH lies in bed is when he's sick.  And we have NO video games or systems in the house.  Our rule is that no one sits unless EVERYONE sits.

My DH hardly ever cleans, but he NEVER talks to me like that... Sounds like your DH has control issues..
