My boyfriend and I have been together for almost 3 years, we own a house together and everything has been great until now. I am not a mom, we plan on having children but I need a moms perspective on this. He has a 6yr old son who I love very much. Usually everything is good. Lately I have been very stressed out at work and his son has been at our house regularly. When I get home his talking does not stop.. I make them dinner and clean up after a 9h day. My boyfriend is working maybe 30h a week right now. Everything I say his son has an answer on, whether he is right or wrong he will argue non stop. He always has to put his 2 cents in. He stays inside playing video games & watching tv, rarely goes outside or in his room. When he's here he takes over the living room. I feel like I can't watch tv in my own house and I'm basically just waiting for him to go to bed so I can get some peace! My boyfriend is upset with me because I seem annoyed all the time especially with his son. I don't want this to be a deal breaker but I make the majority of money in our household plus I come home and take charge here. I'm fed up. I need some peace, his son to quiet up and be respectful & to enjoy my own home when he's around. How do I not get annoyed???
