I am a stay at home mom, My husband works 8+ hours a day, my job is to care for the childre, his 3 children from his previous relation ship and our 2 year old daughter, there is a lot of issues with his ex and I have been right there helping, actually doing everything for him regarding the legal matters, I cook, I take care of the children plus the 2 I do daycare for so the house is not always clean, I had a hard time ajusting the life as a step mom, out house was always messy, like really messy, lately though I have keeping the house semi acceptable and nothing is good enough I asl him to at least clean up after himself and he refuses he says he works all day and that is my job. to the point that he wont even put his own dishes in the sink or clothes in the laundry, he literally drops his drawers wherever he is standing and I am supposed to find these clothes and wash them, he said wheres the respect, a wife is supposed to take care of her husband. If he would quit bitching about everything I would be a little more relaxed and not so paranoid that he is going to leave me if I keep the house clean, which he has said before.I love his children but from the first time I met them I was responcible for them, baths and bedtime and whatnot, I became pregnant very quickly so I guess he assumed I take over the mother role regardless of what I thought about it. What in the world do I do! Talking flat out doesnt work.
