I am a stay at home mother to a wonderful little one. I believe I keep our home up quite well but me darling husband always find something not done to his liking or not done as quickly as he would prefer. He is rarely satisfied with the meals I prepare and never seems to want watch our dear one when I tell him I need to get out without her or need time to myself. I am told that I get enough of a break whilst she is in bed. I have kindly explained to him that I would like to be able to get out during daylight hours. He does not seem to understand. He provides magnificently for us but I am frazzled. The days he is off from employment he sleeps in till 1:00 p.m., even when I am ill. He also will not rise in the night if our little one awakens. His reasoning is that he works 9 hours a day and needs his sleep. Nothing I say seems to make him realize how hard I work daily to keep our home and raise our child and that I need help at times and time for myself. What to do to make him understand?

He may work 9 hours a day but you work 24 hours a day 7 days a week!!!!
Next time he says something isn't done right tell him to do it himself. You are NOT his slave or maid, you are his wife, his EQUAL!!
Next time you want to go out for some you time just get ready and as you're walking out the door them him know you'll be back in a few hours. You don't need to ask his permission, he's not your Father.
On the subject of meals, tell him that if he doesn't like what you cook then he can make his own. You need to stop letting him treat you like a maid and get him to treat you like a wife.
