Taken for granted

I am a stay at home mom of six, a 17, 15,12, 4, 2 and a 8 month old. My husband is gone all week for work and comes home on the weekends. When he gets home I just want a breather and he doesn't pay attention to me unless he wants me to cook something or have sex. I feel so taken for granted by him and the older kids that I am resentful. I really feel like all pf them except the babies could careless about me. I tell him this but he just says its not true. He is a really hard worker and provides for us but doesn't help when hes home at all. Im so frustrated.

I know that feeling. I'm a mother of four, three girls, 10,6 and 4 then our 6 month old son. I stay home all day and do my wife/motherly duties. He works all day a provides for us but when he gets home, it's like he forgot he's a dad and becomes handicapped. I'm like a chicken with no head and he doesn't see that. I started to back off a little and send the kids to their dad. If they fight, it's go tell your dad. You hungry go tell your dad. If he wants something, it's how does it feel to want and not get.
Since then he helps out a little more, I don't have to hide in the restroom for alone time anymore! =)
