Although i have always worked, this last 1.5 years i have stayed home to take care of my girls while my husband works 5-6/12hr days. He definitely does his part but these next weeks hell be home more and now that he is home more i expect more help with the house and the girls. Every time i ask him to do something he says oh i did it last or i did it yesterday. I have tried telling him this is not a race and we are not keeping tabs. If something needs to get done one of us has to do it so if im busy, it should be him. How can i get this through his head and get him to just do stuff.
He complains all the time that im bothering him. I have thought of punishing him but that doesnt really exist in marriages does it? I could leave him alone with the girls all day to let him see what it is like but i know all hell do is let them play all around him and give them snacks while he plays video games. which means when i get home at the end of this punishment, i am the one suffering - cleaning up and waking up early the next day since he didnt feed enough dinner or put them to sleep early in order to play better.
WHAT DO I DO???? AHHHHH
