    My Dh can be a bit picky sometimes.... But he has a work friend who has a newborn and they were talking the other week, and his friend said, that you take the baby when you get home from work, so she can have a rest, she will need it getting up all night to him.
    I'm glad that his workmate said this because i didn't think it would happen. We have discussed that once bub's is a bit older DH will take a day over weekend so i can go out and get things i want done.

    I don't think that's necessarily true... A rather big leap actually. Some outside-the-home jobs can involve long hours, pressure, stress and few breaks. Likewise, Some SAHM's might either bludge or be able to organise themselves so they get things done and still have a break. We can't judge until we're in someones shoes.

    As long as both parties are pulling their weight:
    Free time once the hubby gets home should be split 50/50.

    Hey milly Molly thanks appreciate heaps when you said I'm a good mother all my family is abroad so only have inlaws around me, i hardly get told that I have done a good job. I love my son and I see through his eyes sometimes feel like he actually understands and wants to say that I'm doing a good job.

    hi aleen84, you dont have to do everything, you do what you feel like when you feel like doing it. Number one is you, number two is your child, number three is your husband. He does not need the world to jump when he thinks it should. You are not his slave, you are his wife, which is to say, equal partner on this journey. I would say, I think you are doing the best job, being a good mother, he needs to pull his socks up. hugs, Marie.
