I've had this problem for about four years. My spouse is lazy!!! We have three kids,1,2, and 4. My husband stays home with the kids and dosn't work. I work two jobs, my full time job is a toddler teacher. I am around kids all day, I come home to toys and dirty clothes on the floor. Messy kitchen, dirty diapers all over it's crazy. I walk in change clothes and it's true that WORKING MOMS DO HAVE A SECOND SHIFT WHEN THEY GET HOME!! I get right to work, change the two in diapers, pick up toys,trash, vaccum, dishes, laundry, and bathe kids. He does cook dinner, but thats because he is hungry too. Oh then there is me asking every night 'What do you do all day?" Oh and I love how when we go somewhere I am the one to get the kids ready. If I'm lucky he will get my son ready and then sit in the car (sometimes honking) while I get the girls ready and pack their bag.Many times I feel like leaving since I am doing it on my own. I could never pay for child care, so he is saving me money in that respect. He also leaves two nights a week as soon as I get home so he can go play volleyball. I get that he needs time away from the kids, but can't I get a break too? So should I leave and my kids be without a dad because he's lazy? I feel like it's punishing my kids.. Please tell me what you think is best for my kids?
