I feel the same way! Lately, I've been thinking to myself how I feel like i'm just living with my H and his only job is to support us, instead of being apart of the family. He never wants to do anything family oriented, we talk about it sometimes though. He just likes to leave and go hang out with his buddies, which is okay sometimes but he doesn't let me do anything by myself. He changes his sons' diaper sometimes but he has never fed our 6mo. old baby girl since she was born! he is scared to change her because she's a girl! I don't mind taking them to there appointments because he works and I don't. And he usually pays more attention to the tv and watches our son out of the corner of his eye like... but every day I am up at night doing chores and tending to the children until they go to sleep for the night. they both sleep through the night.
Well I just wanted to let you know that I can relate, and I hope things get better for you, as in your husband wanting to help you more without being a grouch about it.
I wrote a thread in the Family and Parenting forum with the name rosettastnd about my similar troubles. For some reason my account got locked up and I can't make any more posts, so I made a new one and put 10 on the end.
