I watch our son every day, all day. I cook and clean and run your errands. I know you work hard, but I need some help!

Is it really so much to ask that I be allowed to have a shower before 1 am?

Is it really so much to ask that you watch OUR son while I go to the bathroom without an attitude?

Is it really so much to ask that you rinse your plate off when you're done eating? I'm not even asking you to put it in the dishwasher.

Is it really so much to ask you to put your dirty clothes in the hamper not all over the house?

Is it really so much to ask you to watch our son for 20 minutes, on the weekend, so that I can run to the store really quick?

Is it really so much to ask that you stop being so rude to me? Stop commenting about my weight, hair, lack of makeup, clothes, cooking and what I am eating.

Is it really so much to ask that you NOT ask me the same questions 2x? Seriously, if I said that I changed his diaper, then I changed his diaper! If I said I washed the pans, then I did!!! come on!

Is it really so much to ask that I be allowed to sit quietly for 10 minutes alone and read without you interrupting me every ten seconds with some lame question- you know where the glasses are! you get yourself a glass of water!

I just need a little help. Why would you be so mean about it? This is your responsibility too! Just because I stay home doesn't mean that I don't work too!

Breathe...breathe deeply. Women generally set the standards and men will comply once they see you mean business. A lot of bad habits are learned in childhood and often cosigned by wives. Read "Act like a lady, think like a man" by Steve Harvey. I purchased from Amazon.com. Steve breaks it down to its simplest form and it'll powerfully change your perspective.
