I work full time and am dead tired when I get home after fetching my baba. then still need to bath him, feed him, play with him and cook dinner for us. then put our boy to bed. He will help with one ot two things if i ask him to but doing them myself seems easier than begging him to help. how do I get him to help?

So ask him. Asking is not begging. Just say "honey, could you please get dinner on while I bathe xxxxx". While it may be obvious to you what needs to be done, it isn't always obvious to him. Just ask for what you need him to do.
