    I would have called him on it there and then with an 'excuse me? You weren't looking after the kids - my dad did and I was helping with #3 all night.'

    Next time ask him to stay home and watch bub while you go out alone. And tell him you desperately need a sleep in this weekend. Tell him you are exhausted and at this rate will burn out which would leave him looking after the kids a whole lot more. To avoid that, you need some rest pronto.

    To be brutally honest your husband is not doing enough to help out with his family and around the house. He may be taking advantage of you also and because your the stay at home parent you may feel some what inferior to him and afraid to voice out in a stern manner.

    My sister is a stay @ home mum and as loving to his children my brother in law is he is very lazy at home and expects my sister to do EVERYTHING. I don't see this as equal partnership. Just because the husband is the only one working it's no excuse to give poor effort at home and to his family. Bro in-law is quite dominating so it makes things worse. Before the marriage my sister was a strong woman. After they got together she is a shell of her former self. Often bowing to her husband & doing anything he says.

    Kick some butt, get some rest and do the best you can to be happy. I have insomnia and am i stay at home dad and know exactly how you feel being burnt out and exhausted daily. You want to be able to give your children the best of you & your time & in your state it's difficult. Things need to change, some understanding wouldn't do anybody any harm here.

    I always feel exhausted too, constantly on the go with my 10 month old twins. The only break I get is when they are asleep but I usually use that to clean up! I am lucky that my husband does 50/50- he may work at an office during the day but I work at home during the day so I insist he does his fair share. Have you had a frank conversation with him about it?
