Am I asking too much of DH?
January 25, 2014 at 12:23 AM
No one should have to be treated like staying home and raising your kids is not a job. My husband almost always pulls the 'I don't have to take out the garbage and help wash the dishes because I work hard for 8 hrs.' Thats when I tell him all about my day: 45 min breakfast, nursing, put in a load of laundry, play with son, pick up toys, clean surfaces, put everything in its place that was left out, sweep downstairs, eat a snack wih son, pick up toys son played with since I last picked them up, put clothes into dryer, go uptairs and work on my college classes while trying to drown out Sprout TV for about 2 hours, pickup toys, 45 kin lunch, spend atleast half an hour getting ds to sleep for a nap, put everything away that's out, put away clothes, take a little time to kyself while ds naps, ds wakes up, eat snack with ds, dh gets home from work, dh plays grand theft auto 5, I make dinner, we eat, I ask him to take the trash out and help me wash the the dishes, he bitches for 5 min, I tell him everything I did, he claims he did more, he ends up helping because I stand strong and tell him to shut the f*** and do it because I ask him to only help with the dishes and take the trash out. Do I ask so much of him?

    Asking him to take out the trash? No, that's not asking too much.

    Absolutely not.  Buy a cast iron skillet to use to tune his head up every once in a while.

    Wait - you have one child, did a load of laundry, and cooked 3 meals?  I'm a sahm (have been for years, but was a working mom before).

    Yeah, I think you could have taken out the trash.  Or he could.  Not something worth fighting about.

    My husband can't pull that card with me. I work more hours than him most days. LOL.

    But we just do whatever needs to be done. If I'm not taking out the trash when its full, its likely I'm doing something else so he doesn't get pissy if I ask him to do it.
