im a stay at home mom with a 6 month old baby. my boyfriend works 4-5 days a week, 8 hours each shift. usually he works from 2pm-10pm, and 2 graveyards 9:30pm-6am. i take care of my son almost all day. i get up with him at night, i clean, do everyones laundry...all on 4 hours of sleep each day. my boyfriend gets about 7-8 hours each night, and still doesnt help me. i feel like a single mom. he doesnt do anything to help me. and he doesnt even work that much or he goes to work late in the afternoon. i dont see why he cant help me a few hours before work? i only get one shower every WEEK. he gets to take one whenever he wants. and he even takes naps whenever he wants. im at the point where i say"either you start helping me or i cant be with you no more" i cant keep doing this by myself when he is here to help and doesnt choose to. we've been together for 3 years and i dont know what to do?
and i know the whole shower thing is gross but my son wont stay in a bouncy and our bathroom is to small for a playpen.
also i dont need to hear that just because he works he gets some slack. he gets breaks and everything i dont. i do my job 24/7.
