    Default husband driving me crazy

    Im over doing everything!!!!! I dont mind doing things but I cant cook and look after my son when he is crying. My husband does not get it! or if he cries he just does the same thing like rocking (he hates this and likes to be upright due to reflux). this drives me crazy because I know a song or trying something else will work! or he says I think hes hungry (this could be 10mins after a feed).

    Anyone else have husbands like this? At times I feel like the slave. If I winge enough he might do half the dishes to get me off his back but i am on to his little tricks.

    I do. Let me know if you find out how to change it... I'm slowly going crazy! I attribute it to the 26 years he spent on the lounge while his mummy did everything. I love my hubby, he is a great father too, but life would be much nicer if he would do something, ANYTHING, around the house to help!

    Wh don't you just sit your DH down and tell him what you expect of him? They aren't mind readers, and if you're doing it all, they won't know you need them to do things. Explain that it's a partnership, that you both have a responsibility to your homes and families etc. That's how we work it

    yep you need to be honest and speak up. Men can be a bit clueless when it comes to this stuff he probably isnt even aware of the situation.

    Be kind and explain how you are feeling and what little things he could do that you would really appreciate All the best.

    men can be lazy i have NO doubt ...but i think its up to us girls to not just sigh anymore and let them get away with it too cos i swear they know more than they let on and are capable of doing way more than they do, they know we will just do it in the end (cos we do and i reckon blokes sit around the pub joking about this stuff..im SURE of it ) and yes i beleive many men grow up beleiveing its not really thier "job" to do these sort of things...its sucks u have to whinge, nag, "sit them down" and talk but just keep doing it....i end up cracking it and losing the plot in the end to get my point across and slowly its working....i do think men are not as instinitive as women in settling etc and we end up doing it cos we know what will work and we keep trying....make a suggestion aka sing DS a song then walk away...tell him what u expect, give DH some confidence in doing it but yep initially you will have to make suggestions....its annoying i know but they are from another planet

    Thanks ladies.

    I think if I didnt laugh about it later I would go mental. My weekends usually consist of me telling him what to do and I feel like a nag at times because he usually just ignores me and watches tv. Sometimes he says he cant multi-task lol.

    Something might be sinking in today because I made a comment about the backyard being like walking through the jungle and later he mowed the lawn.

    I blame his mother too because she does everything for his dad. I am pretty open about my feelings on this but I think at the end of the day he is a man!

    Just proves women are the superior race.
