I need a little advice

My boyfriend works 40 hours a week. We have a beautiful 6 month almost 7 month old daughter. She is the light of my life. I am blessed that I am able to stay at home with her. Unfortunately my boyfriend thinks that because he works 40 hours a week he can come home and relax and then sleep. I am frustrated because I do everything for him and my daughter. I cook, clean, laundry, take him to work, bring him lunch, pick him up regardless of the hour he is off. I know that being a stay at home mom consists of doing the household duties however I need a little help and I have tried to explain to him that I need help. I don't get a break! I want to be able to slip away and take a shower or just a little me time or maybe a little help around the house. His argument is that because he works he shouldn't have to. But in my opinion just because you work does not mean u don't have to spend time with ur daughter or engage in the family! How else can I go about explaining to him?

I am 23 years old with a 2 kids. My husband works 40+ hours a week as well and still comes home and helps with anything that i ask of him and MORE. Our kids are 4 and 2. There is absouletly no exuse for that. He is wanting you to do everything for him. He needs to get his own lunch or take it with him. A friend needs to bring him home when he is going to be so late that it cuts into the babies bed time. He NEEDS to watch her while you take a shower EVERY day. Your not his slave and he is not yours. Having a baby takes 2 people. My advice to you...if he doesn't comply. Give him and choice to help or you need to leave.
