Why do you feel like that way?Does your husband not help out? If you are a sahm and your husband works then its normal that you do most of the parenting.But when hubby gets home from work or on weekends he can also help.By us my husband always takes a bath with our son and he gets him ready for bed,he even takes our son swimming once a week after he works so that i can take a break and on that day he fetches us a take away so i dont even have to cook.Also on the weekends he lets me sleep in the morning till i want,because he has to get up very early during the week and he is happy to just get an extra 2hours sleep.Its his way of letting me have a break because he knows its not easy to look after a child 24/7.He once said it very nice that he knows he works the whole day but he also knows that i work the whole day taking care of our son and doing the household thats why he finds it fair that we equaly get breaks.But not only that,he also wants to spend time with his son.Maybe you could ask your hubby to help u get a break.
