My husband is a stay at home dad and he is great at it. He is an amazing father, but once I get home he checks out most nights and weekends. I feel like he gets a lot of "me time" and I get none. He says my down time is when I'm at work which doesn't seem fair to me. He also says I just need to make plans and tell him in advance for my me time. Have any of you dealt with this? I am always either working at my job, or doing house working and hanging out with my baby. They only downtime I have is when we get a sitter and go out just the two of us. He has his own activities about three times a week and sat/ Sunday it's just about all day golfing.

I have this problem too. My husband even states (to me and other people) that he "punches out" the second I walk through the door. I commute to work, then I work all day, then I come home and I am "on duty" until the kid is in bed.... which is an hour later than I want it to be. I need some time after the kid goes to bed and before I need to go to bed. But the two of them "sleep in" damn near every day, so my kid isn't tired when I want him to go to bed. Due to this, I average about 5-6 hours of sleep a hnight before I have to do it all over again.

I'm in the same boat. I had to start just making me time and telling him I would get a sitter if need be which of course isn't necessary but seems to be the kick in the butt he needed. I also am in the midst of trying to have him chart out all the things he does, I do and the things we shar from a responsibility standpoint to help show him how unbalanced it is. We shall see
