Is not earning money considered not working hard???

Just had a fight with my hubby tonight. We have a 14 month old son, and I went back to work this year working 2 days a week.
He has mentioned a few times "he works his ass off to pay the mortgage and bills". I feel like he is trying to make me feel guilty (which I do). I always say to him in front of friends and family, with how hard he works and that our son and I are very lucky to have such a dedicated dad and hubby.
I have never joined a chat forum before, and I have never posted things for advice. I am venting, and want to know other experience!! I really don't know how to tackle this situation. I feel I work hard, juggling a part time job, finding baby sitters, as well as the at home duties, swimming lessons etc etc list can go on. Should I be feeling guilty, and how should I tackle this situation? Tonight didn't go so well!!

Here's a thought ask him to change roles. You work full time and he handles the child. And have him get a part time job as well. Some times a little role reversal is all you need.

My ex husband always threw that in my face as well. There's a reason he's my ex!!!!
You don't need to feel guilty, he should be appreciating you for helping out and looking after his child. I'm sure he has clean clothes, a meal every night and a clean house as well.
Maybe go on strike for a week and see how much he appreciates you after that. If he doesn't then you know he never will and you need to decide if you can live the rest of you life being treated like that.
