Feeling distant from husband

I've been a stay at home mom since my son was born, so for almost a year. While its been an adjustment for me, I feel like my husband doesn't fully understand and appreciate what I do. It seems like we have grown apart. At first I thought it was us just trying to adjust to our new roles, but now it's coming to a year and I feel like we've become different people. He's seems more annoyed and impatient, while I feel useless and pathetic. My husband is a good man, hard worker, and wants nothing but the best for us, but something is off with him, or us. Is this normal?

I understand what you are feeling, I also stayed at home a few years with my son and it took a lot of adjustment for both of us. I felt like because I didn't leave my home and work I wasn't contributing, but that was so far from the truth. Not only did I save him from having to work as much when he got home, but it saved us money in the long run. It is always good to be truthful with each other and keep the communication lines open. Praying you both get through this season of your marriage soon.

It is very common as the roles in the relationship change.
You need to make sure that you communicate well. Let him know how you are feeling and discuss ways to change things.
Every relationship needs to be worked on but when children come along most couples forget about it.
