Not good enough? Ever.

We have an 11 month old son. Up until about a month ago I was a stay at home mom, nothing was ever good enough or clean enough for my husband. He always tells me that if he had it as easy as I did he would be in heaven. I ended up getting a job and now if I say I am tired, he tells me his job is way harder and more tiring than mine, or tells me that I have no reason to be tired. Why does he compare everything that I do to him? Is he just trying to make me feel horrible? Because if that's the case, it's working. Any advice?

My ex husband was like that. Nothing I did was ever good enough but he wouldn't get off his butt to help at all. He finally realized what I did actually do when I left him and he had to look after the 2 boys for a week at a time but by then it was too late.
You can try talking to him and explaining how you feel but unless he experiences it he will probably just carry on.

Dont let him make you feel horrible bc that will just put more stress on you. nobody needs a lot of stress. Maybe ya"ll could sit down together and explain to him how he is making you feel. Communication is always the key to a great marriage. Trust me I have been down this road with my husband when he used to work at the detention center as an officer. It was rough til I told him straight up that "Look we need to talk this is getting insane" I hope this helps a little
