My husband sometimes annoys me stating that I am useless being an engineering graduate sitting simply at home & playing candy crush which is the only way I relax myself after doing dozens of things with my active baby round my legs.., I feel very bad,,,

You are not useless. Taking care of house and children is a huge responsibility. Some husbands don't understand what is involed. Be a good idea to sit down with him and explain it. 😊

A stay at home mom is a noble "profession". It is a job, and one from which you sometimes need a break. It is not a waste just because you have a degree. If he thinks it's so grand, offer to switch places. Have him stay at home raising the kids and keeping the house, and you go be the breadwinner. Don't feel bad at all. If he seriously has a problem with you not working, you need to sit and talk about the best solution. If your income would be only enough to pay for daycare and a maid, then there's no point and it's better for your child to be with their mother instead of some stranger.
