Yes!!!!!!!! Me!!!!!! My husband have a very hard time we had so many arguments. But the key is communication that has helped us. We go to dinner or do something simple together to have just alone time n reconnect. I try to understand him cuz guys r not meant to stay home so when we talk I let him tell me all he is feeling n all I'm feeling and we try to come to a middle where we both can b happy. I wish I was the one staying at home but we can't change that right now so he helps me around the house n try to do fun stuff with the kids that way he got something to do. The most important part is time together and trying to get closer that way you guys can help each other much easier. Also he has to be understanding of how hard you work and that he needs to help you!

Thank you for your advice, it's reassuring to know were not the only couple in this situation.

Tell dad to work harder on getting a job. I get that he was probably laid off, but when I got laid off, I found a job in any field until I was able to go into my original field again. I'm not suggesting you be as frank as I am to you, but he's not going to feel good about himself until he's working, and you're not going to feel good about yourself until you're at least not workig full time.
