I am with Laura actually! I never thought of it in the way she wrote it but really that rings so true for my Husband! There can be piles of dishes on the counter, a dirty diaper that just didn't make it to the can after bath time, and piles of unfolded laundry. He won't complain or suggest I do something about it, but he won't do anything either.

If I ever do complain about the house being in a mess he tells me to calm down it's not that bad. He realizes how hard it is with a 15 month old who is into EVERYTHING and climbing like a monkey, he is tired when he's off work, I'm tired when I'm "off work" (when my Son is asleep).

Still it would be nice for him to say "WOW you found the kitchen table!" now and then too :)

nope i dont think your alone all my hubby tells me is to clean this and clean that but the only help i get from him is the mess i have to clean up its even hard to get him to help me to care for our son on the weekends i have to wake up when our son wakes up wake him up and tell him what he needs to do and then he wants to go back to bed i dont go back to bed when the kid goes down for his nap im up from then on sometimes to 1 in the morning so yeah no you are totally not the only one :)

you are so not alone, I'm not a stay at home mom, my husband stays home with our 3 kids. I think the both of us feels like the other doesn't appreciate them and it's worse because I hate my job and I am defintely not appreciated there. Just know that you are doing a good job and make sure the both of you stop and see the small things and just be happy with that. It's hard to go to work and it's hard to stay home and the both of you need to realize you are doing what you're doing to make your kid/kids happy and that's all that matter, the rest is just b.s.

No your not alone in this! I'm the same, I feel like that all the time and that no matter what I do he wont appreciate me. I think a lot of it is that he never tells me that he appreciates what I do and I kind of feel like he expects it. ((hugs))
