I have a 15 month old boy who i stay at home with! I love staying at home with him although he is starting to be a bit of a handfull so he goes to daycare one day a week. He is just getting over croup which is horrible, and has been really clingy and sooky. And now im starting to get sick too! His daddy, my partner, works 8 till 4.30 mon-fri. I do the cooking, the cleaning, the washing up and drying up, the vaccumning, the groceries, the dropping off and pickin up to daycare. I do everthing else too. Also, Im about to start a Bachelor of Arts at Uni (online)! Because i stay at home with our son, my partner says that it's my job to do everything around the house, he says he shouldnt have to help because he goes to work and thats all he should have to do! He never really helped before i got pregnant but i thought that things might change when bub came along. Boy, was i wrong! We have been fighting over it so much lately and its really annoying! We just finished watching a movie, then i got up and started doing the dishes. He followed me, saying he was bored and was gonna go to his mates! There is a mountain high pile of washing in the laundry, clothes to be put away and some stuff like that! He said he couldnt be bothered doing that stuff and that it is my job! I told him if he was going to go, then to not bother about coming back! He never wants to spend time with us because (quote) "You are boring and all you want to do is stay home and clean and stuff".
If he bothers coming back, can anyone help me? I need him to understand how things are not working! I love him and i dont want to loose him! I dont want our son being stuck in the middle of us fighting all the time! HELP!
