I've seen a lot about husbands who don't help out. My husband is mostly pretty good about pitching in . . . during the day. However he gets angry with me if he wakes up at night when our 2 year-old son cries. (My son doesn't always wake, thank God. He just just has phases where he will wake up for a few nights, then back to sleeping through the night.) He thinks I should be up and be able to take care of the crying so he can sleep. He works outside the home and I stay home with our children. Since raising the children is my job, he believes I should handle all the care during the night. I have no problem getting up, I just don't always wake up before he does. The last time this happened, I had a migraine the evening before and had taken medication that made me drowsy. Is it unreasonable to think that I might not wake right away? Or to think that because he is the dad that he might help out and come and get me if he is unable to sooth our son?
