First let me say I was born in 1977 not 1982. I'm not sure why 1982 was the oldest option I could chose.
I want to ask all of you fellow SAHM, how much I can reasonably expect my husband to help with around the house and how much can he reasonably expect from me? I have a 13 month old who was born 4 months early and as a result is developmentally about 6-7 months right now. She has a physical therapist, occupational therapist and a cognitive therapist who all visit twice a month. I work with her on a daily basis as well. I'm also trying to introduce table foods and not having much luck, as with most preemies she has texture issues. These activities take up a good bit of my day.
He expects the house to be "company ready" at all times and assumes that since it isn't that I take no pride in our home or my job as a SAHM. I'm getting increasingly frustrated because I feel that his expectations are unreasonable. He doesn't understand, since I don't do anything all day, why I can't accomplish these things. Any thoughts on how to help him understand?
