That sounds like my husband, I don't think they realise what it's like to look after two kids on your own while they're at work, I have a 2 year old and a 10 month old. My husband helps a little, I tell him he will miss out on having a connection with his kids if he does nothing with them, now he might take one to the shops with him, we play as a family before bed time, but my only break ever from the kids is if they go to sleep at the same time. I'm lucky if my hubby changes a nappy.
I know this doesn't solve anything, but at least you know you're not alone.

what l do is get out by myself at least once a week. l get ready and say to my husband l'll be back later. Since he's then alone with the kids, he knows how hard it is to be with them alone all the time. He never complains when l go away or just go to bed. l don't give David a choice. l have my cell phone, he can call me home if he really needs to, but he never has.

Someone please tell me why moms are so afraid to leave the kids home with dad for awhile? How else are they supposed to understand what it's like to take care of them on our own?

This seems to be a very common thing among our husbands here. Mine isn't too bad. He does help sometimes. But when he does he usually grumbles about it. Try talking to your husband about it. Hopefully he will see the light.
